Some color

I started playing around with some HDR techniques in Photoshop lately. For this pic I didn’t take a couple bracketed photos. I just played with exposure and such on a single photo. The day I took this, it was really overcast and hazy in Canyonlands National Park so it wasn’t the best picture to begin with. So I thought I would play around to see if I could get any type of interesting photo out of it. Here’s the result.

And here’s the original if you are interested.

Reminds me of one of my homes

I’ve been loving Freelance Whales’ Weathervanes as of late. They have such an amazing blend of folk and electronic sounds. I found this video this morning of them playing at the Bedford L subway station in Williamsburg about 3 blocks from where I used to live in Brooklyn. I went through this station every day on my way to and from work and play.

I have thought a lot lately about whether I would move back to NYC since there are lots of film jobs there, and mostly I think that I would miss the outdoors that Salt Lake has spoiled me with so much. But after watching this video it made me miss New York for some reason. I think that I just might move back if I found the right job out there.

Trees and me

One of the cool things about IR is that it makes trees, plants, and grass appear bright white while blue skies are almost black. It’s really strange. Sorry for the boring tree pictures.

I took this of in the reflection of my vans window.

The Capitol

The Utah State Capitol building.

The path that goes along the front.

I never would have bothered to go shoot pictures of the Capitol building, but I was taking pictures for the company that my friend, Laura, works for. I snapped this really quick without looking.

More IR fun

Yesterday I had a little impromptu photo shoot with some of the people I work with at the Sundance Labs. Here’s a little taste of some of the pics I liked. I’ll share more soon.

I love IR

I’ve been shooting with my new IR camera a lot lately and I must say that I love it. The pictures I get out of it are like nothing I’ve ever taken before. I’m going to start sharing some pics that I’ve taken over the last few weeks starting today. First up is city hall in Salt Lake.

Winter Memorial Day

•May 30, 2011 • 1 Comment

It snowed this morning. This morning as in Memorial Day. I awoke to about 2 inches of snow on the ground when I left my house to do the morning rounds. Kind of crazy. I do enjoy the cooler whether that comes with living up in the mountains, but this is a littleĀ ridiculous. I am ready for some warm weather. Even if it’s just 70 or so. I am ready to climb outside and do some hiking. Come on spring and make yourself known.
