Lost In A Good Book

Lost In A Good Book

Took this photo on the back of the Lincoln Memorial. Not a part that most people wander back to but I saw a lot of locals back there enjoying the view of the river. Most people that visit the Lincoln Memorial only go into the main area where the statue of Lincoln is. There is a whole museum in the basement of the building. You can also walk all the way around it if you are inclined. You get different…

Two From DC

Two From DC

This is the second from the DC series I am doing this week. This one is the Lincoln Memorial from the far side of the Reflecting Pool. I took this image after I had taken the Jefferson Memorial image. There were some stops in between the two images so the sun had shifted. The light was coming in from behind me to the left. That is why the building isn’t fully light but it was all about the light and the…

Memorial Shadows

Memorial Shadows

This was shot on the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC,. I had just finished taking some photos off the backside of the Lincoln Memorial and was walking around to go back down to the front. I saw the shadows off the columns with the Washington Memorial in the distance and just had to take the image. I got lucky in that no one was walking towards me. I was rushed because I had people coming behind me. In fact, there…

The Memory Of Abraham Lincoln

The Memory Of Abraham Lincoln

Just one from when I went on a bit of a stroll on the National Mall in Washington, DC. I didn’t really think about it when I went to the National Mall on Presidents Day weekend that it would be crowded. Then again the Lincoln Memorial is always full of people unless it’s really late at night or early morning. You aren’t allowed to use a tripod inside the monument. I maybe forgot about that sign and setup for a…

Mr. Lincoln

Mr. Lincoln

Playing with editing techniques for long exposure and night shooting I have revisited stuff I never really bothered with before. I happened to stumble across this one I shot in the Lincoln Memorial itself (which I found out was against the rules later since I had a tripod). I had it in color but I figured let me see what it looked like in monotone and the light effect was too dramatic not to do the conversion. The way it…

Land of Lincoln

Land of Lincoln

This was shot while I was on the photowalk with Trey Ratcliff.By this point the group was broken up and I was with my friend. He was shooting one thing and I wandered off to take this shot. I have no real idea what lens I had on the camera. Either a 35mm or a 28mm and I was in bulb mode and did roughly a 30 second exposure. That’s why the people are blurred like they are. The Lincoln…

Film Files: Monumental

Film Files: Monumental

While I am not sure if the Kennedy Center counts as monument its getting tossed into this. So, my super secret new camera is a Fuji 645 Medium Format. This is the first film camera that I have successfully shot film through and developed it. I have always wanted to try film and I really love medium format. There is something sexy about the resolution you get out of it. Sadly, the scans are low res jpegs I got from…

Lincoln Memorial

Lincoln Memorial

If I had to pick a shot from the night of shooting on the Mall in Washington DC this would be it.  Lincoln is lit up brighter and I focused on the statue and fired away to get the shot.  Editing this was a bit of a nightmare because of the sky which showed every ounce of noise in the picture but after some serious time in Photoshop I got it clean without destroying the rest of the detail in…
