And so #Movember begins!
I don’t do enough for good charities, so I’ll pump the donation page every chance I get.
Jason, Lena, and I took a class with two Chicago Tribune photographers. It was a good walking tour of downtown near our office, but more valuable was the quick photo review the photographers did after the walk. Having professionals look and comment was very cool and having a large group of people taking shots in the exact same area was great as you could see how different people approached where we were and caught things I hadn’t thought of.
I took the kids to the Shedd Aquarium on Friday. The Jellies exhibit is still set up and this is set up for photography. All the jellyfish are set up in colored tanks to offset their color and lit well enough that you can easily get some spectacular shots.
You also get a bonus seahorse in there that wasn’t part of the Jellies exhibit, but I really liked the shot and wanted to share it.
If you don’t have flash, you can go to flickr
I wanted to experiment with capturing fireworks because you don’t often get a chance to do it and its a difficult subject. I took about 200 shots and got these 19, of which I think 15 are worthwhile and 4 I kept for whimsey or color. I’m not sure when I’ll do this again, but I learned what works and what doesn’t work for future reference.
For those who can’t see flash, here’s the set on flickr.
I’m a bit behind on my photo editing, so I finally got these done today. We went to Brookfield Zoo back in May, I really like some of shots I took, most specifically the giraffe ones.
For those on devices without flash, here’s a direct link to the set on flickr.
My second attempt at a wrigley panorama. I tweaked hugin a bit and I think this came out great. This is the result of stitching 16 photos together.
I took the best shots from around the house and block and put them on flickr. Â Okay, now I think I’m done sharing the whole snow thing.
Two weeks or so ago, in regards to my photo project, dannyman asked me how I was moving the photos and what I was doing in WordPress to make it all work. He also suggested it’d make a good blog post, which I agree.Â I’ve mentioned before about the cameras I have at my disposal, so this will be more about what I’m doing for post-processing and moving the files around.
This will be a long one, so I’m gonna put the break in here for you front page readers…
