Despite my dislike for HDR photography, I can understand its advantages. This week I decided to try it out myself as I am introducing the concept to my high school photography students as an end of the semester project.
In the below two images, I layered three images for each, taken in the middle of the day. I used Photoshop as my processing software and used Photos in Color as my tutorial. These images were taken at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Tucson, AZ. For my full post on this visit, please visit my other site.
Last month’s Desert Dash Color Run was a lot of fun to photograph. I enjoyed helping my school raise money for future families who need help with tuition assistance by providing photography coverage.
There aren’t many buildings in Tucson, AZ that are more than 100 years old. This week my photography students and I were granted special access to one of Tucson’s oldest buildings, the Manning House. Once a private residence, what sits at 450 West Paseo Redondo is now El Rio Health‘s headquarters.
…but I love playing cards so much that I don’t want to go lay down and rest.
Well, they aren’t puppies anymore, but to me, they’ll always be “the pups.” The best time to catch these two playing is in the early morning when they first wake up from a long night’s rest. Plus, it gets hot in Tucson, AZ very quickly! Watching these two (sometimes my oldest will even play along) with a cup of coffee makes me giggle every time.
Easter is the only time of the year that I can convince my kiddos to put on something nice for a picture. Fifteen minutes into the shoot I had to bribe them with four scoops of ice cream and any toppings they wanted if they’d just hang on for another fifteen minutes with me. LOL!
Yesterday I enjoyed a two-hour window of time, just me and my girl. We built a sand castle, went for a bike ride, and walked hand-in-hand. I don’t usually take pictures of people with my 50mm prime, I wasn’t about to take along a huge, portrait lens during this precious time. I just love the many facial expressions of this girl!
