Here be Faeries

Published April 7, 2017 by KEPRI

I visited Dover Stone Church in Dover Plains, NY yesterday with my son and boyfriend. The foliage is just coming back and everything was pretty green so it was quite beautiful. I swear the place is enchanted by fae. I highly recommend visiting soon, once the leaves pop and it’s a bit warmer. It’s one of the area’s nicest attractions!

I shot with the steampunk Pentax K-x. The K1 came in today so I haven’t shot with that yet. The nice thing about shooting with the punked-out Pentax is that it has no LCD screen. I bought it knowing that the LCD didn’t work. What I like is that it forces me to rely solely on my knowledge, not what I see on the screen. That way I’m not lazy and it honestly makes me a stronger photographer.

I highly recommend taping over your screen once in a while, especially if you are just starting out. Set your ISO and white balance and just toggle the aperture and shutter speed. You might surprise yourself. 🙂
