Valley Spring Lane
I may have mentioned this before, but sunset is my favorite time to shoot outdoors. The light is always great during this "magic hour." I often just walk right outside and shoot in the middle of my street. Sometimes I find a great car to use as a prop....and I hope the owner doesn't come out and yell at me. Lately I've been using my 200mm F2 lens which is actually really heavy after a while, but produces dramatic results, so I don't mind the trouble. And because of the long focal length, and the large aperture, I can really blur out the background.
