Update about the Artist Reception

We had an excellent turnout for the reception with lots of interest in the work.  In the next few days the gallery will have a display for prints set up and I will have prints of some of the hanging photographs in the print display.

I have also set up a web site for my fine art photography at artbyrichard.amomentoftimephotos.com and I will be adding photographs to the site as I work on art photography projects.

The new site currently contains photographs that are part of the “Downtown After Dark” project, High Dynamic Range landscape photography, water, and fall colors. All photographs on the site are available for purchase as prints by contacting me by email or phone through the new site.

First Set of Images from my new camera

I have been getting to know my new camera and what it can do. The following 5 images are some of the results of this time.

The first image is of Reno, Nv from one of the parking lots at TMCC and is a High Dynamic Range image done by the in camera software automatically.

 The second is a test of the low light capabilities of the camera, this image is without a flash in a room light by three compact fluorescent bulbs.

The next image is a highly cropped image of an owl in a nearby park.  The kit lens is to short for wildlife photography.

The last image for now is a picture of some moving water.

So far I am impressed with the capabilities of this camera and the results I am getting with it.

An interesting technique for creating very interesting photos

I was just reading an interesting article about High Dynamic Range Photography at The Art of HDR Photography Part 1: Guides: Learn: Digital Photography Review.  The author provides a very through walk through of the details of the technique and why it can be useful.  I have worked with some HDR images using my Canon A720IS with the CHDK that I referenced in an earlier post.

This image is one of my attempts with HDR images.  The difference from the original files is in the shadows within the building and the additional detail in the shadows and the sagebrush.

Fort Churchill HDR

I achieved an interesting image by combining some night shots in downtown Reno.  The visible clouds and the bottom of the river are enhanced by the combining of the images.

Wingfield Park HDR-2

These and several other HDR images that I created are at my office live photos, here are thumbnails of them.

I plan on doing more of these images after I get the new camera next month.

Recent experiments

I have been working on some night shots and HDR (High Dynamic Range) images.  I will upload some later, when I am done with a large download that I am working on.
