Jim Shoemaker’s photography has been featured as Photo Of The Day several times. Today’s selection, photographed near Moab, Utah is an intense desert stormscape rendered in black and white. Shoemaker sent this photo to the Booming Clouds Assignment which was one of the most popular Assignments I’ve run. This photo of a snowstorm over the La Sal mountains was taken from Mesa Arch in Canyonlands National Park with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS L lens, Gitzo Tripod, Manfrotto Ball Head, Singh Ray 2 Stop Grad ND Filter and a cable release. Jim Shoemaker has submitted a number of stunning landscapes to the OP galleries. You can see all of his image on his OP Gallery Page.
I’ll be choose a Photo Of The Day every day. I select the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.-Christopher Robinson, EditorYou can find me on Twitter @OPRobinson
