Behind the Image; Chip off the old block 

Being a blind or visually impaired photographer I tend to use my camera so I can see the area around me. Not that many people think about using the life you function is an aid to see more of their surroundings before photographing. But I have found that has given me a better view and I get more of these interesting shots that most people would not think up or see. This image is a great example of what I was speaking about.
I was on a hike and was told there is a chipmunk on a rock. So I pulled out my camera and turned on the life you and looked around. Suddenly I saw a chipmunk sitting on a rock. I zoomed in and snapped this shot. Once I snapped the shot I went back and looked at the finished image and realize man this turned out really good. Plus I zoomed in and found out that it is super sharp. When I got this into my computer that evening I decided it would it’s best as a black and white.


Here is a snapshot of the settings and camera information for this image.


Being blind I do not fiddle with settings is much is most people would. I tend to work with the auto settings that are in my camera. I have found that I have gotten some great results just using the auto functions for certain times a day and certain subjects. The cameras I have used are a Canon power shot G10, Nikon D 90, pinhole camera, iPhone 4s, iPhone 6 and Sony a 6000.

I wrote this post for a project called Vantage Point created by a new camera company called Light. They are aiming to get great quality DSLR shots in a compact camera form

Went over to my mothers this week and dropped off her Mother’s Day present. She was so excited to open her present. Believe it or not this Image is one of her favorite photos. Here is a photo of the image hanging on her living room wall. She placed it where everyone could see it when they walk in. I am so happy she loved it. Thank you to Robert Park and Daniel from Nevada Art Printers for making my mom’s Mother’s Day present such a hit.

The Great white throne” ,Zion National Park,

image

Here is my first attempt at photographing
The Great White Throne located in Zion National Park ,Utah.
The Great White Throne is a highlight of Zion National Park, itself a world-class showplace of sandstone. The whole edifice consists of the Navajo Sandstone, one of the world’s largest sandstone bodies. One of the striking things about the Great White Throne is that while its top is white, its base is red. I hope you enjoy this image is much as I do.

Marble Canyon” Grand Canyon National Park-ChelseaStark 

  

Marble Canyon is the section of the Colorado River canyon in northern Arizona from Lee’s Ferry to the confluence with the Little Colorado River, which marks the beginning of the Grand Canyon.

Lee’s Ferry is a common launching point for river runners starting their journey through the Grand Canyon. Marble Canyon is also well known for the Navajo Bridge, where US Highway 89A crosses the Colorado River.

Marble Canyon marks the western boundary of the Navajo Nation. In 1975, the former Marble Canyon National Monument, which followed the Colorado River northeast from the Grand Canyon to Lee’s Ferry, was made part of Grand Canyon National Park.

World fattest bird by Chelsea Stark photography

One summer I was just hanging out at my dads cabin in Duck Creek Utah. It was such nice weather outside. We decided to open up the doors to the back deck and let the fresh air in.  I decided to sit out on the deck with my camera. And see if I can get some interesting photos of birds eating from the feeders.

To my surprise here comes what I would call the worlds fattest bird walking across the deck and eating the bird food that the other birds are throwing out from the bird feeders.
To get this image I had to lay down on the deck nose to nose with the bird. Very happy with the shot that I got. The portal bird was so fat he couldn’t actually fly so he actually jumped down step-by-step off the stairs to get off the deck. I’m assuming that’s also how he got on the deck.
