Tuba City, Arizona
I have been interested in photography for many years, but I starting taking the craft more seriously as my 2014 New Years resolution. This photo was the first one I captured after I re-committed myself to photography.
I was walking home from work one chilly morning when I noticed the sun just starting to peak up behind this particularly interesting tree. There were just enough clouds in the sky to convince me that this was going to be a very special sunrise, so I ran home and grabbed my camera.
I snapped a single, mildly under-exposed image to capture all the color detail in the clouds then finished editing the image in Lightroom. I intentionally pushed the colors to a surreal place; mainly as a representation of the intense wonder and excitement I felt after snapping this image.
Morning fire is the photo that re-ignited my passion for photography. This image will always be special and meaningful to me, which is why I have chosen it as as my business brand and logo.
Here’s to sticking with resolutions!
