Photo of the day 1/5/2012 – “Untitled”

“Untitled”

I’m not totally excited how this photo turned out, but since it got me to learn some functions of Photoshop I hadn’t used before, I’ll take it.  What you don’t see is a ton of branches from the scraggly tree in the neighbors yard.  A few remain, and the retouching work isn’t close to great, but I accomplished my goal today so I move on.

Photo of the day 12/27/2011 – “Untitled”

“Untitled”

My first star-trail photo.

I wish I had framed this better, but I really didn’t expect this to turn out at all.  It was merely a test shot as I had not ever taken a long exposure like this.  I had no idea what I needed for exposure, ISO, or anything, especially considering the trees would catch some light from the porch light.  3007 seconds, ISO 1000, f8

My First Time-Lapse

I got to try out my new, nifty, camera timer for the first time a few weeks ago while out hunting.  Among other things, it allows me to program how many pictures to take and how often to take them, in order to be able to make them in to a time-lapse video.

I really didn’t plan this out; I only came up with the idea of shooting this location about 30 minutes before I did it.  I didn’t have a lot of time to pick the best angle or check the sensor for dirt as I needed to get out in the woods for the last 90 minutes of hunting.

In the first few seconds, you’ll see me walking out to my hunting stand.  About 25 seconds in to it, you can see deer run across the field, and if you watch close in the last few seconds, you can see the blur of me and another hunter walking out.  We’re blurred because of the long shutter speeds needed to expose a photo at dusk.

This is 704 photos taken over 2 hours and 5 minutes.  Camera: Canon 30D
