Marco Polo

Brea-Anne and Gerry at East Fork Lake, Ohio.

I ended up rotating (and thus cropping) this slightly but overall I'm pretty pleased with the composition. However, I'm not really sure what else I could have done compositionally. If anyone has any suggestions that would be cool. Their expression definitely helps bring this picture to life, and the jet ski in the background is a nice little treat because I didn't see it when I took the picture.

See There? #2

Of course other people had to join in the fun too. Brea-Anne is the new person.

See There? #1

Well, I finally did it. I bought myself the new Canon EOS 30D. The first weekend it was mine it got to go on a little camping trip to East Fork Lake in Ohio. I was a little iffy about taking it with me to battle the elements, but I decided that I bought it to take pictures, so why not? It was really funny because my paranoia about my camera getting hurt or stolen meant that it went everywhere I went, including my sleeping bag at night.

Hopefully soon I'll have a new website launched to accompany the new camera. But don't expect my picture taking ability to improve just because of the new camera and the website. At least not right away :-).

Alright to the photo. Here we have Ryan (blue) showing Matthew(grey) where a huge bag worm nest was way up in the top of a tree.

Reflected #2

From the previous post you had to know that there would be another photo in the "Reflected" series, and coincidentally, this was on the same day.

Reflected #1

Right now, I'm really searching for some things that are even remotely suitable for posting due to the fact that my camera is broken. This isn't something I'm really proud of, but it's better than some of my other stuff. It kinda reminds me of something Sam would post. I took this one day when Adam let me borrow his camera.

Debate #2

Taken the same night as this. I ended up cropping this a little to remove the arm of the lady in the previous photo.

Here stands Adam, unknowingly posing for me as I secretly hold the camera down at my waist. I'm really happy with the way this was framed because I wasn't sure what I would get by holding the camera down low. I like how the flash brought out the textures of the robe, however, I don't like the shadow it cast on the ceiling.

Building and Bikers

In case you didn't figure it, this was taken the same day as the previous biker post.

This was at an "Intelligent Design" debate last semester in which Adam also participated. I forget her name, but she was on the side against the teaching of ID in the classroom. Adam wanted me to take pictures, and I wanted to take pictures with Adam's camera, so that worked out just nicely. Um, post processing...minor brightening and minor rotation.

I shot this when I randomly decided to go down to the waterfront to take pictures...and by chance, this race was going on. This was the same day that I took this and this. This is another one of those pretty much impossible panning shots. But I'm pretty happy with this one. Because it was the middle of the day and it was very bright outside, I had to set my camera to ISO 50 and exposure value of +2 to decrease the shutter speed. Post processing included some slight cropping (because my camera only has a 3x zoom), and an "auto levels" adjustment to correct the overexposure (which always seems to do a nice job in these situations).

Summer Day

Instead of just posting pictures like I normally do, I think from now on I'm going to actually go into detail about my posts. This will likely include the occasion of the picture, reason for taking it, and some post processing that was involved.
This photo was taken back home in Northern Kentucky. It was a gorgeous day so I decided to take my camera outside. I walked down the driveway and I looked over at the front yard and first noticed the lines in the grass from the lawnmower. I was also rather amazed by the vivid green and blue colors. The first photo I took didn't quite capture these colors correctly. It looked a bit overexposed. So I adjusted the exposure down to, I believe, -1. That seemed to do the job. No post processing was done except for resizing.

I'm not sure if I like this or not. I spent too much time on it to be able to evaluate it anymore.
