In the film camera days, there used to be multiple exposure on single frame. Today we can expose in different frames, combine them ‘after the fact’ and finally get one picture. This technique is been popularly called “HDR” or “High Dynamic Range”.
Here is my attempt at HDR (though I should say Photoshop – even CS4 sucks at properly merging the photos. Manually merging them makes it a lot better!)
It was bright and sunny outside. Guys and ladies had come home with food and beer! It was fun-filled potluck party at our place.
As always, I take the Grill’n job whenever I get a chance and this was no different. I decided to do Veggie and Chicken Kabobs.
The veggies were colorful which included Green apple, Green, Red and Yellow bell peppers, Potato, Pineapple, Zucinni, Squash and much more. Here are some photos!
During my recent visit to India, went to Thrissur, Kerala, a beautiful city often called the cultural center of Kerala, with perfect balance between greenery & concrete and rural & urban population. During the stay at the Hotel, found this amazingly huge Cathedral. Here are 2 photographs of the same at different times of the day.
No, its not the Mitsubishi Eclipse . Its the total Lunar eclipse observed from most parts of North American continent in February 2008. I was in Orlando, Florida and had just checked into the motel. It was a beautiful view from the lawn of the motel the most expected Eclipse event since the next Total Lunar eclipse is not until Dec 21, 2010.
So I grabbed my gear (Canon 10D with 70-200 2L lens). I was experimenting Sunny 16 rules and basic exposure guide to capture moon. Finally, got one.
It was 4:00 PM on 20th Feb. We (me and Brindha) were rushing to the Minneapolis airport to board the non stop flight to a place where we can escape from the winter of Minnesota… Yes, we were going to Florida where it was 85-90F.
This is the land that claims “Scream with the kids for a change”
Very True. We became kids going in all the rides at Universal Studios and the next day at Sea World. Here are some photos from there:
After that we went for scenic spots and one such place is near Key Largo.
Celebrity Kids is the Photo studio in Woodbury Lakes mall, MN. Tom Dunn, the owner of the studio was kind enough to let members of Saint Paul Camera (http://www.saintpaulcameraclub.com) use the studio for the evening of Feb19, 2008.
The “open house” started with a demo of the studio and the process he follows in developing/framing etc. Then he started giving some basic tips on how he becomes a kid when raking pictures of kids and simultaneously handles lighting/camera etc. Then the 2 big studio rooms were open to us. Here are some photos from the session…
It was 6 in the morning and I headed east for 19th Annual Hot air affair Feb 2nd. The school ground was packed with pick-up trucks and balloon laid flat.
Slowly one by one got filled with lighter than air stuff and they began to fill the sky with colorful resins. Here are some pictures!
