Angie brought the grand kids over yesterday as Ben was on call and working. We had about 7 inches of fresh snow and you know what that means when you have kids. 🙂
The only one who didn’t get to enjoy the sledding was Addie. She stayed inside and after I took these images I went back in and spent some quality time with her.
Austin had his share of mishaps but never quit smiling. He would get back up and carry his sled back up the hill and do it all over again.
Josh had his form perfected after his first few runs and he set the longest slide of the group.
Angie didn’t slide but she was taking pictures of the kids. This is the same hill that her and Mark slid down when they were young. Spent hours watching them come down that hill. 🙂
Got a nice pose from Gabby.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
I had to think for moment what day of the week is was. 🙂
For a guy who just retired I haven’t accomplished much in the way of photography. I’ve been doing some long over due projects and working on a new one. Most of my time has been spent finishing up my shoot for our Monticello branch.
Each shoot I learn something new. I started using this “Pop Up Background” some time ago because it reduced the amount of set up time and was a consistent look for my shots.
So I have two photos to show you today. This one is just like it came out of the camera with no retouching at all. You can see that the background even though I flipped it horizontally doesn’t begin to adequately cover the subjects in the image.
Normally if I know I’m going to do groups of people I will take a bigger background so I can get more people covered. Additionally one of the challenges was this room was small and had a very low ceiling.
This is the image I came up with after spending two and half hours in Photoshop. It’s not perfect but for a website or a small wall picture it will work very well.
I love working on images in Photoshop but I have to tell you I got tired of this one. 🙂
Enjoy your day and be careful.
Happy Wednesday ~ 310
Short post this morning as I am running late. Jeanne has me doing so many chores around the house that I don’t have time for the important things. 🙂
I took a different road home last night a came across this wonderful old structure. With the lush green grass and a few animals roaming around and the rough ground made, for me at least, a wonderful scene. The real problem came in processing the image as there was one massive power line running across the image, that no matter what angle I tried to shoot from I still got part of the line in the image. A few meticulous minutes in Photoshop and it is gone.
Oh, I almost forgot. I sent an email to the gimbal company ( it’s been 8 weeks since I ordered the gimbal for the Vision 2.) Surprisingly they responded back in a few minutes saying that I was now 128th on the build order. The guy I correspond with from Great Britain said their little company is now up to producing 100 gimbals a week. So hopefully I’ll have it in a couple of weeks.
I hope you enjoy the image and your day. Thanks as always for stopping by and be careful.
