I have one more barn for you today. I tried a lot of different techniques in post processing but this is the one I liked the best. I hope you also enjoy it.
I’ll be at Camp Courageous today facilitating a retreat. I enjoy the process and it is always a treat to go to the Camp and see all the wonderful work they do.
I’ll be working with some great individuals today and that always adds to the enjoyment of the process as well.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day. Stay warm and be careful.
Happy Friday! ~ 308
No it didn’t snow yesterday but it still reminds me of Winter. Cold, damp, and gray. Enjoyable day yesterday with the employee training. It is a lot like a retreat with a lot of high energy activity and some cerebral time as well. The training was held at Camp Courageous, a remarkable establishment dedicated to helping people with challenges enjoy nature and all it has to offer. It is a wonderful place to experience.
There are lots of trees and interesting things to photograph at the camp and so I intended to wander around the camp during the lunch break and capture some images. Unfortunately around 10:00 a.m. it started to rain and it continued raining the rest of the day. The staff at the camp always give our staff a tour of the camp and it is always enjoyed by everyone. That got canceled as well. I felt bad for the young campers as well because during the Spring, Summer and Fall the camp has so many fun outdoor activities. They also now offer a Winter activity for their campers.
Why the above image? Well, since I didn’t have anything current for this morning’s blog and as I was looking through some of my images I saw this one of my favorite tree that was taken March 06, 2014. Not all that long ago and it is a reminder (not that we really need one) of the difficult winter we had and continue to have some remnants of yet today.
That’s it for today. No pontification or profound thoughts to end the week. Just a humble thank you for checking out the blog. Enjoy your Friday and be careful.
Happy Friday! It took its sweet time getting here, but it finally did. Yesterday I spent most of the day at Camp Courageous near Monticello, Iowa. What a wonderful place for folks with special needs. The facility itself is magnificent and is only surpassed by the caring and dedicated staff that supports the visitors.
We held a culture day for some of our staff and along with other team members we taught customer service, our ability to choose our attitude, and a host of other organizational and cultural items. It is a fun day filled with lots of energy, music, good food, and comradely.
The images for today’s post are from last Saturday Farmers’ Market and they are some of the more colorful sights at the Market.
A couple of my friends and followers of this blog have asked me if I would show my top five favorite steps in Lightroom for the post processing phase of RAW images. There are lots of videos out on the internet about that very subject but for them I am going to see if I can put together my favorite workflow in a short video presentation to help them get more familiar with and more out of LR5. I’ll work on it this weekend as I’ve just about got the wedding images done. 🙂
My plan is to go back to the Farmers’ Market tomorrow and do some more street photography. That is the plan, but Saturdays are made for sleeping in, so who knows what will happen.
I hope you have a great day. Fridays are usually special and Friday evenings are even more special. Thanks for checking out the blog and be careful.
