Brooke At Ash Cave

D20 8199 second try Brooke At Ash Cave

Brooke stuck around after the Dirty Show. Today I took her to one of my favorite places on the planet, Ash Cave in Southeast Ohio.

I’ve shot at Ash Cave a number of times, but Brooke brought her unique talents to this shoot, so there was nothing we shot that was a repeat of anything I’d done there before. We left at around 5:30 a.m. for the two-hour drive so we could be there when the sun came up. It was a good day, in that for a couple hours we had the place all to ourselves before other people started showing up.

I haven’t had time to do a thorough edit, but this one just jumped out at me when I took a quick look through what we had done. There will be more to come.

This trip was a bit different for me as far as shooting technique went. Every photo was taken with the camera on a tripod. I shot less than 1,000 photos during the whole day of shooting. I decided to do that for several reasons. It was dark. The day was cloudy, so when the sun came up, not a whole lot of light made its way down into the gorge where the cave is located. I wanted to use my 12-24mm lens, which doesn’t have VR. And I’ve been trying to work on a self-portrait, which requires the camera to be on a tripod…no success with that task yet, but I guess I’ll keep trying.

After we got back from the trip to Ash Cave we went to the studio for some more shooting. Looks like there might be some good stuff there too. Tomorrow we’ll shoot some more at the studio…and maybe, if it is a bit warmer, make a short trip to a nearby favorite shooting location…then I’ll take Brooke to the airport for her flight back home.
