Thread: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words -- A Photography Thread

    I contribute photos on the "other" board, and figured I could add to this thread. Here are some of my favourite recent images I have shared.

    Just finished a painting, and I almost like the remnants left behind from the clean up more than the actual work of art:





    About a month ago, during a short warm spell, I got out and got a couple of good shots of a modern wood stringer bridge:

    Visited Mormon Red Death this past long weekend. He took us to the beach. It was chilly, but certainly warmer than whence we came. Here are a couple of my favourite shots:

    tooblue--what kind of camera do you have

    I shoot with an older Cannon 6D, with a 24-105mm lens (which is standard for the camera). The pics of my art table and edge tape scraps were shot using a 35mm 1:2 IS USM lens. It's particularly useful capturing depth of field pics in low-light conditions.

    To clarify, I am not a photographer—I know enough to capture a good image, but more importantly I am adept at post-editing in the RAW Photoshop development environment, which is the new darkroom process for photogs. All professionally shot images have been heavily edited in RAW/Photoshop. Knowing what you are doing at the point of shooting, along with using artificial lighting helps greatly in mitigating how much post editing needs to be done. But don't be fooled, all really good photographs have been heavily post edited. Here's a shot from late last summer of the mist on the empty field adjacent to our home:

    Original shot with minimal editing:


    Heavily edited shot applying layers of HDR toning, among other techniques:

    My first attempt at capturing stars (don't have a remote switch, so I had to bring my laptop and tether trigger the shots using Adobe Lightroom):






    Here is a still image from my first time lapse I attempted the next night lakeside ... a link to the 1.5 second video clip is below the image:

    Pictures look good. Is the line in the pic a shooting star?

    More likely a plane or satellite.

    Just a quick shot with my iPhone. This the moon over Salt Lake City at dusk yesterday.

    That's kind. I'd like to get better—it's one medium I just haven't been able to invest a lot of time in until now.

    Not much: it's a lake, it is kinda cold (but not too bad this time of year), everything is overpriced as you'd expect, all the burger joints are over crowded, waverunners are the gnats of the sea, Bear Lake is the best tasting lake of all the lakes in Utah (speaking of crashing skiing/wakeboarding/surfing behind a boat).

    Our friends have a house on the east side of the lake. There is hardly anybody on that side and it is nice. We went into Garden City for a shake and I (a major crowd hater) was glad we stayed where we did.

    Oh, and have fun, it's beautiful up there.

    This is true. And if you go to Paris Idaho you can see what an old LDS church looks like when it is designed and built by a ship builder, kinda cool. Outside of Paris there are some ice caves that may still have ice in them this time of year.

    Weíre definitely scheduled for a tour in the caves. I remember going once when I was young. I think itís going to blow my kidsí minds. Also planning to hike to Bloomington Lake up the same way and play on the rope swing.
