A Weekend Off

by Jeffrey Dahl on Mar.21, 2010, under Jeff's Blog

I took the weekend off from shooting motorsports.  Noreen, the dogs, and I went to Yachats, one of our favorite places on the Oregon coast for some rest and relaxation.  It had been a while since we had been there and I was hoping to get some new landscape images for my portfolio.

From almost the moment we arrived I felt pretty out of touch with this style of photography.  Since I have been focusing so much on motorsports photography these last few years, I found it extremely hard to shoot landscapes again.  I felt so out of my element.  It is definitely a different style of photography and requires a lot different mindset.  It is true that “practice makes perfect” and I felt far from “perfect” this weekend.
