July 2018 – Branden Beachy

This picture was taken at the annual Indiana Football Coaches Association North-South All Star game.  It is a game between the best just-graduated high school football players all over the state.  It shows the emotions of a player who just scored a touchdown.

July 2018 – Jim Loomis

The photo was taken at the recent annual Goshen Air Show, attended by about 30,000 people. It included a demonstration by the 7 time winner of the National Air Acrobatics Contest, the V-21 Osprey, a woman wing walker on a biplane, a F-5 jet, and formation flying demonstrations. It is a great venue for photographers. I had thought about going up to Grand Rapids for their air show, but this one was pretty impressive.

This photo was shot at 1,500th of a second, f5.6, ISO of 400 at 210mm.

June 2018 – Kay Rhodes

This photo was taken in June 2018, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston, Massachusetts. It was a wonderful building to photograph and I was especially inspired looking up at our American Flag hanging from the ceiling of this beautiful atrium, designed by Architect, I. M. Pei.

Camera settings: f/8.0, 1/200 sec shutter speed, ISO400. Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens

May 2018 – Tammy Holmes

The photo was taken on a trip to New Mexico on, I believe,  US 285. We were on our way from Santa Fe to Taos  and literally came around a bend and there it was. I am literally standing on the edge of the road with quite a drop down to the rio grande.

Taken with digital, nikon d7200 camera, 70-300 mm lens, 70mm focal length, f/16,  ISO 200,  1/200 sec.

Photo of the Month – April 2018

Congratulations to Mike Goodwin and Kay Rhodes who tied as this month’s winners!

“Red Barn” by Mike Goodwin. Pulled over on the side of the road, rolled window down and took the shot. In Photoshop I desaturated  the color image to give a monotone feel and down-play the very red barn.

Camera Settings:  F/8 @ 1/125th of a second. ISO 400.  Image stabilized lens at 105mm.

“Weathered Roots” by Kay Rhodes. I discovered a beach full of weathered wood on Sanibel Island in Florida, this past February . I’m always drawn to texture in nature, and the roots caught my eye and seemed draw me in to take a photograph.

Camera settings: Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 24-105mm lens, f/8, 1/500 sec shutter speed, ISO 250.
