Yup, 101 years old on Saturday. :razz:
I know, but I was just being lazy and I wasn't using my good camera either.John,
Here is a tip. If you can adjust the exposure compensation level on your camera, set it for a stop or two lower than the camera suggests. You can always bring out details from shadows, but when the highlights are blown out they cannot be recovered.
I wish I could have been there. Looked like a great time.
Oh, Gene... why did I get a FB alert that you are turning 101 years old? Did I miss a couple of birthdays?
John, you ROCK!!!:grin:If anyone wants full size versions of any of my pictures I posted here
all hosted by Microsoft's SkyDrive web site.
Feel free to download them, I don't think I'm a good enough photographer
to ever make money selling them. I still have allot to learn and I still need
to break down and buy a better camera and everything that goes with it.
I just wished that I had more time/money to devote to photography.
But I'm still glad that I've had the ability to hike, climb, drive etc. too all the
places that are in these photos.
Thanks!Nice work John on the photos'. Did you clear up the billing thang at the front office, good/bad?
Freeman gave me a great little photo lesson!I know, but I was just being lazy and I wasn't using my good camera either.
Thanks for the tip I'm definitely not a professional photographer.
Here is a picture that I took of Rainbow Falls near the Devils Postpile
National Monument. I used my polarizer as a ND filter and took as long
of a exposure as possible with my camera on a tripod. Then I took
another picture of the same scene but to get the correct exposure
for the highlights that where washed out in the long exposure. At home
I used Photo Shop to replace the parts of the scene that where washed
out in the long exposure with the short exposure photo.
Here is what this picture would look like if I didn't do this.
