Breaking Fog over Mather Gorge

August 15, 2008

I took this shot on August 4th in Great Falls National Park. I went out there hoping for some dramatic sunrise light, and was given this scene instead.

If you’ve been following my old blog, you’re aware of the fact that I had most of my equipment stolen in mid-July. I’ve now replaced most of what I lost, but when I shot this photo, I had yet to recieve new Grad-ND’s in the mail. This shot is a blend of two exposures, one for the land, and one for the sky. This is the first time I’ve used this technique and been happy with it!

About Me

August 15, 2008

My name is Alexander Mody. I was born in October of 1990, in Springfield, Virginia. Since I was a kid I’ve enjoyed taking photographs. Through trips to Shenandoah National Park with my Grandfather, and a few family vacations, I began to develop a very strong interest in the natural world. This, combined with the fact that I have always loved to have a camera in my hand, is what has really inspired me to become interested in nature photography. I currently live in Vienna, Virginia, and I try to make the best of every photographic opportunity that comes my way.

Simply put, there is nothing I enjoy more than photographing the natural world. I hope that through my photographs and this website, I can share my perspectives with others.

Also, for those who are interested, I shoot with Nikon cameras and lenses. I also make heavy use of Singh-Ray Graduated Neutral-density filters.

Thank you for taking the time to drop by. If you have anything to say, feel free to leave a comment. Please visit my website at WWW.ALEXMODY.COM to see more of my work!

Hi, and welcome to my new blog. I’ve been blogging for a few months on Blogspot, but I’ve found WordPress to be far superior in just about every way. In case you’re interested in reading some older posts, my old blog can be found here.
