Today I met up with members of the Cardinal Photography Student Association for a photo walk through the Midland Tridge nature trail. Again, I'm not too invested in producing landscape shots, and I think the area lends itself very nicely to portraiture. Lots of tall grass for foreground bokeh, thick wooded backgrounds, and the winter sky creating some absolutely beautiful soft light. Today I was fortunate enough to have some fantastic models who were equally good company.
After making a stop and dropping off everyone at SVSU, I drove into downtown Saginaw. Originally, I wanted to take the drone out for a sunset flight, but there was a compatibility issue with my memory card (and I didn't want to risk losing all of the photos I had taken up until that point). Instead, I found an abandoned building. Lots of interesting glass textures, overgrown barbed wire, and, of course, boarded up windows and doors. Of course there are nicer parts of downtown Saginaw, and these locations deserve an equal amount of attention. On this specific day, I had planned on flying over these places, but that'll have to wait for another day. I'll be in downtown Saginaw more, as I'll be working for the Saginaw United Way. Very excited to work in downtown and contribute to a community leading organization.
