One of my clients aranchodeluxe.com had me come out to photograph their property. One of the shots they wanted is of their new water truck. You don't usually get clouds out in Los Angeles but this day we had perfect clouds. I got many shots of the truck but this one is my favorite. I set my camera down right on the ground, added a rock just under my lens to prop the camera up just a bit then took the shot. Getting the shot from an unusual angle makes for a more interesting photograph; it almost looks like a timelapse.
I can't think of anything better than enjoying the outdoors, drinking a nice cup of joe and watching the super moon rise above the horizon. When I saw my friend drinking his coffee an idea came about. The motion of tilting back to drink his coffee kind of reminded me of a wolf leaning back howling at the moon. I wanted the moon to be the centerpiece, because, well, it's the super moon. I brought my Nikon flash with me so I slapped the orange filter on it and tilted facing towards the sky. I was trying to create a fire effect. I positioned my subject by "the fire" tilting back to drink his coffee essentially howling at the moon.
