Secrets of My Best Selling Photographs: Bridge with Moon
This photograph is without a doubt THE best-selling photograph at art shows that I have ever done. It has been on several CD and book covers, and countless other places (that I didn't authorize.) This is the secret of one of my best selling photographs.
BRIDGE WITH MOON
I know the way I name my photography isn't catchy, but I call it like I see it. There's the bridge. And there's the moon. I chose to print this one in black and white. It really doesn't lose anything in color. It was pretty bland. I was on a hotel balcony overlooking the Mississippi River and the Hernando DeSoto Bridge in Memphis, Tennessee. It was early in the morning. Misty rain. Foggy. You can see the lights of traffic coming into Memphis for work.
It's mostly luck and a little skill that makes an outstanding photograph. Timing is everything. Natural lighting is something God provides. I can't make it happen. This photograph was naturally lit. I just noticed it, set my exposure, composed it, and snapped the shutter release.Tripod? Maybe. Don't remember. Sometimes I come up with a special photograph. This one is special.
Some people ask, "How did you get the moon there? Did you Photoshop it in?" Some say, "The Moon is never there. You must have added it." Check out this website, all you non-believers. The moon CAN be there.
Photoshop? I use it. Fairly well, I think. But I did not Photoshop the moon into this photograph. Promise. Was it really there on the morning I made this photograph?
Well, maybe all secrets shouldn't be revealed.
