More and more opportunities for nature photography as summer wanes toward autumn and a more pleasing light returns upon the Ohio landscape. Photographers in the Dayton area are blessed with a local park system that provides easy accessibility with a wide variety of beautiful subjects. This video was filmed on August 7th at Wegerzyn Gardens in Dayton, one the best locations for garden photography that includes hummingbirds, butterflies and picturesque settings for portraits.
Summer means sunrises directly off of my back porch. This is one of the reasons why I grow so many flowers (all from seed), starting in late April and lasting all the way through October. This is nature photography at it’s easiest. No need to get in the car for a long trip. No need to pack gear and put on hiking boots. So much natural beauty just outside my door. The trick is to know the light and how to make it work with the smallest of natural details.
