Here are some more random pictures from my current 365 that I thought deserved sharing. I am also going to be making a separate post of just a few extra self-portraits, and a big post of pictures from the Red River Gorge within the next few days, so keep checking back!
Wow today has been a busy day for my blog and Flickr! The busiest ever in fact. I got Freshly Pressed here on WordPress, and had my most recent photograph make Explore on Flickr as well. Thank you everyone for the views and comments, and welcome to my new subscribers! I so appreciate all the feedback and support!
I hadn’t done any shots at night for quite a while (not once this project in fact) and had been craving one for some time now so I thought I would try using these lights for my picture tonight. I sort of wish that I would have started slightly earlier so that it was just a tiny bit brighter outside, but, over all I am really happy with how this turned out. Plus, it is completely straight out of the camera other than conversion to jpg and the addition of my logo! I love when that happens! And it also may have inspired a few other images using lights, which is exciting.
Please remember to go vote for my portfolio and tell everyone that you know! You can vote once a day. I so appreciate each and every vote I can get, thank you for the support!
My house is currently on the market (anyone need a lovely home in Lexington??), and there was a showing tonight so I had to get out of the house for an hour or so. It gave me a great excuse to go sit in the arboretum and just relax and enjoy the beautiful weather. I have been sitting in front of a computer editing for days straight now, so it was nice to have a break.
The shot at hand is actually about ten pictures merged together. It is done using the Brenizer Method, which I have come to absolutely love. For those of you who don’t know, this method is done kind of like how you would create a panorama. You take multiple pictures of a scene, moving the camera across the area you want to capture (like rectangular puzzle pieces). These pictures are then merged together using Photoshop or various other programs to create one image. With the Brenizer Method it is possible to get a wide-angle look while still having an extremely shallow depth of field (which is exactly what I love). If anyone would like to know more about it I would be more than happy to go into more detail, so feel free to ask!
And, just another reminder to go vote and pass it on to everyone you know!
