Canon 5D Mark II, 180mm F/3.5 Macro, f/4, 1/500, iso 250
This one is from my trip to the Palouse in 2010. I have some friends coming in today that have been in the Palouse, and I'll be headed there myself in a couple of weeks. Great place for us photographers!
I would imagine the first couple of owners of this Chevy could never imagine it in such a decrepit state!
Last summer we got a new attraction in Seattle - a Ferris Wheel on the waterfront. It gets rave reviews. I'll have to try it one of these days. Looking at the exif on this shot (from a ferry), how did I hold it steady for 2 seconds?
As I mentioned, I shot a wedding recently. This was one of the shots the bride had in mind. Was fun doing it with all the rose petals. Tricky shot though, keeping my feet out. Actually just had to hold the camera out at arms length and fire blindly.
It's great in color, no doubt. But as I was looking at it, I thought "hmmm, possibly B&W, let's try Topaz BWE." I tried a few presets and settled on Warm Tone II. Added a bit of protect highlights.
Really happy with this treatment. What say you? Original is on the Continue link.
I woke up this morning, looked out the window, and lo and behold this beautiful heron was working my beach. And the light! That amazing light where sunlight is reflecting off dark clouds. You know I'm going to shoot that, even in my robe.
So I did. Then all you have to do is take a few steps toward a heron and they fly off. Look at those water droplets! It's going to be a good day!
So I get asked to shoot the occasional wedding. It really has to be the right situation for me to want to do it. Some long time friends in California asked me recently and I couldn't resist. I had a great time shooting this very fun wedding.
I was "shooting the girls getting ready" and had already gotten a very nice shot of her shoes. But then she mentioned how much she liked hearts and so I got this idea of trying to make one with her shoes.
