2 hats photography

Why 2 hats? Well I suppose it is in part because I have come to find that a hat can be an invaluable thing to a photo enthusiast. It keeps the glare out of my eyes, makes a sunshade for the viewscreen, and in a pinch makes a darned fine way to prevent lens flare provided your arm is long enough. Luckily, being an American living in the west, I can get away with wearing a ‘cowboy’ hat with no teasing at all. But as any cowboy would tell you, the right hat for summer is not the right hat for winter. So I have my black wool for winter and my woven straw for summer. Therefore: 2 hats!

And why, you may ask, do I take photos of my hats at all? That is easy. I take photos of my hat for my Mother. She asks why I have no pictures of me…obvious answer…I’m behind the camera. So for my Momma - my hat is ‘me’ in the photos.


About
Contact Info

My name is Valrie Dyhouse. I live in Oregon but have been lucky enough to travel, sometimes just for photography and sometimes for other reasons, but always my camera comes with me. My go-to camera is a Canon 7d but my trusty 40d is still with me as backup, albeit in beloved semi-retirement. I use Canon lenses, but otherwise my accessories are from a variety of manufacturers, Lee filters, a Sigma polarizer, Hoya skylights, and the one thing I'd not make it through a long day of shooting without, a Payday candy bar.

Val, I just looked at the Missouri 2013 gallery. These are beautiful pictures. You have a real eye for framing a scene. As soon as I finish this comment I'll admire the rest of the pictures you've taken. It was great to meet you.

Hi Val, I haven't checked in here for a long time. Your comp skills are developing wonderfully, and very imaginative. I only have had enough time to skim a few of your galleries tonight, but hope to get back soon. Nice that you can get out and snatch some frames during your travels!

I had a great time prowling the eastern Sierras in October. I can see why Galen and Ansel loved to hang out there!
