This image was one of the very first photos I took with what some call a "real camera." In 2007, I didn't know shit about taking photos other than having fun.
So, I was driving on this backroad through Floyd County, VA and it was so cool and foggy. I couldn't see much other than a couple of fence posts and random trees. As I was crunching my way through the gravel road, I saw a lonely cow to my left side. I had to capture this cow.
Like I said, I didn't know shit about exposure-iso-fstop-etc. So I attempted to focus directly on the cow. Luckily, the camera had a better idea and it focused on the barbwire post.
This photo is so special to me for three specific reason
- It's my first cow photo.
- I realized its not the camera.
- The feeling of gravy began and I then began to let loose.
This image is one of my most sold prints and I love knowing I took it with a camera that only took 6MP images.
