New Rules for Photography

morning on hudson 10-25-10 Ann Wilkinson Photography

Yesterday I wrote about three simple things to do to improve your photography.  Today, I'm trying to put this into practice.  When I got up this morning, the sun was just coming up across the Hudson River, and I hurried outside in my pj's to set up the tripod.  It's so peaceful on the water early in the day, and I wanted to capture a moment of quiet before a more typical kind of Monday began.

The last time I was in Italy, I saw an exhibition of work by 19th Century artist, Canaletto, and this image reminds me a bit of his spacious work.  I'm lucky to have seen this sky today.
