More from the Tampa Bay Aquarium. These are all umm, I forgot what the guide was saying because I wasn’t listening. I was too busy trying to figure out how to shoot through water that constantly had hands reaching down to touch these soft, squishy things. I’m sure there is a technical term for them but I have no idea. For those wondering if I manipulated the color, nope. Thats what they really looked like. I left them as is only adding some contrast to the images since it was slightly washed out from the water. Enjoy.
I am staying at a hotel while I am in Fort Myers and my room looks out onto the Caloosahatchee River (no idea how to pronounce it). I figured I might as well take a few shots while I am here.
While this only represents 4 images, the reality is this is the most editing I have ever done. Everyone of these images is stacked then merged to create one image. Some from as little as 6 images and others with 21. Processing on a 4 year old laptop made this tedious work. I would like to think my beer for being cold and available while my venerable laptop chugged away at the images.
Hopefully you will enjoy the mornings on the Caloosahatchee River.
Who knew I would ever title a post that? Nothing like mobster death threats to make a post stand out!
More from the Tampa Bay Aquarium. I haven’t even remotely worked my way through everything yet. Just going through and picking the interesting bits to share. It was a challenge shooting through the glass in the tanks along with dealing with the weird light. I just let the camera handle the ISO and shutter speed with me adjusting the aperture depending on what I wanted. I did try and keep the aperture around 4.0 so it wasn’t just constant bokeh in the background and you got a sense of death.
So enjoy swimming with the fishes.
Just a quick edit of something new I shot! I went to the Tampa Aquarium with my family and shot a lot of images. First time in weeks I have held a camera for more then a few minutes. Was a good time!
I have lots of images but not lots of time and I really liked this little guy. The image was really shot vertically but I flipped it horizontal then merged several shots together to really bring out the detail and finalized.
With the gecko just sitting there it reminded me of an internet meme of “Hey There!”, enjoy.
While these aren’t images from my latest flight it is representative of modern travel anymore. You just rush from one place to the next. Another airport; another destination. They start to blur after awhile. I don’t even pay attention anymore as the faces and places blur by. So enjoy the adventures in modern travel.
Just a bunch of random architectural images shot over the years. I have no idea which cameras were used and and I doubt I even still own any of them. Hopefully I’ll get some time to shoot some stuff as I am traveling today and off work for the next few days. The camera bag is packed and ready to go!
I had a chance to shoot! I was meeting some friends and didn’t want to carry any of my Olympus cameras around and the Ricoh GR was stuck in a backpack in my office so I grabbed the Mighty Canon 330HS and went forth. I’m always amazed at the images I can coax out of this point-and-shoot camera just by changing some settings on it. I really do recommend Ming Thein’s Compact Camera Master Class. It will teach you a lot about how to use a compact camera and it will teach you some fundamentals of photography that will work on any camera. Well worth the $50.
I did leave the images without doing any perspective correction on them. I just liked the effect of building height. It gave it emphasis and gives something of a vertigo effect hence the name.
I have been dying to use that title since I edited this image. I have been sitting on it just so I could use it on a Monday.
The image itself is of the guy who works for me. I usually point a new camera, lens, or flash at him. Most of the images are looks of hate or inappropriate gestures. In fact, the next image that had him exposed shows him glaring at me. I just liked the silhouette effect with the blue coming in from window. Enjoy.
