Yosemite Photographers – Editorial Photo Gallery
Sometimes I wonder if this park may be the most popular photographic destination in the United States. It’s hard to turn a corner without running into somebody snapping photos. Here’s another of my editorial galleries – this time it’s Yosemite photographers.
One of the most popular destinations for photographers is the top of Glacier Point. The photo above is a bit of a rarity. There aren’t more tripods and cameras set up because this was taken on the road’s opening day.
This image of my gear with the fading sunset light on Half Dome shows why this location is so popular. I usually try to set up here an hour before sunset, on days with light clouds. Like many other park destinations, this one is good in spring (assuming the road is open then).
Here we have a photographer woman with a light-duty tripod and DSLR. I tend to use lightweight gear as well. Being more mobile is be quite important to me. I just keep the strap (loose) around my neck while I shoot. This is just in case the camera happens to get bumped or blown by a gust of wind.
This beautiful photographer silhouette was captured up at Olmsted Point, along Tioga Road. This man was (obviously) shooting at sunset. If you look closely on the left side you can make out the hump of Half Dome.
Lifestyle, Tripod & Camera Gear Photos – Yosemite Photographers
I figured I should also include some commercial friendly camera gear & lifestyle shots. The image above is my mirrorless camera setup on a small tripod. I was shooting long exposures along a trailside creek.
This gorgeous camera & tripod sunset silhouette was taken along Old Priest Grade Road, near the Groveland foothills. Not many Yosemite photographers know about this secret spot. I suppose it could be because it’s technically outside the park.
