Before and After


Here is a before and after image that I have spent an hour working on. Recently I have been blown away by Ashton's HDR images that he's been doing. If you haven't seen them check them out. click here!

BarkSo I was walking back to the news room after taking some pictures of christmas trees in the library and I saw this tree. I used some sharpening and blurring to help focus the viewers attention inside of the frame, but I feel the image is lifeless.

It's funny but often I will think to myself, this is going to be an awesome photo and it turns out flat and then when I least expect it, I come up with something good.

What do you think?

Thursday Afternoon


Today I was feeling a little overworked and frustrated with my internet publishing class. Consequently, I skipped it and went and made some photographs. I took a Sinar 4x5 large format camera as well as my Cannon 40D. It was a good day. I spent 2 hours in the darkroom processing negatives and I think that I got a few great ones. I love the zone system. Here is a photo from my 40D that I submitted as a feature for tomorrows paper.
