Adventures in Photography: Dan Goers hits Sunshine

For a few months, Dan Goers has been developing his craft, maintaining a steady and aggressive take on shooting photographs. He has worked feverishly on shooting in “manual mode,” and with that comes hardships and instant rewards. Mr. Goers says, “To me, shooting in manual just makes photography more fun. The effects you can get with small adjustments to aperture and shutter speed can turn your image into something you never would have expected.” Take the beautiful picture above. This was taken in Orlando, Florida, where Mr. Goers attended the Photoshop World 2013. While there, he captured vibrant images showing some glorious colors Florida has to offer. Along the way he learned a thing or two about the trails and tribulations of “manual mode.” I present you with: “Sweet Songs of Sun.”

This image of a plant in the wild captures the visceral beauty of Florida wildlife. I really like the intricate texture Mr. Goers was able to capture on the plant’s leaf.

This shot reminds me of one that was taken by my father which still hangs in our living room. The bright yellows contrasted with the greens bring out gorgeous vibrancy.

This picture immediately caught my eye. Seeing water moving like that is a rare thing and I especially like the small water droplet on the lower right hand side of the photograph.

These last two break a trend in the nature aspect of Mr. Goers’ previous photos in the set. The first is a candid work, shot in black and white, revealing a distinct vintage look. The second of the two may be the strongest of the photo shoot. This was taken from a high view overlooking a lounge in Mr. Goers’ hotel. Striking reds and muted yellows are highlighted. I especially like the patterns that are formed by the plates laid on each table.
