Back to Arizona, to finish off my review of photos from my New Years trip.
In keeping with my current ice theme (Hey I’m a San Diego boy, I need to experience winter too). Here is another shot from my trip to Sedona – New Years 2008. Oak Creek Canyon was the place where Winter had really taken hold. The hike involved a series of ice stream crossings instead of water fording. It was an amazing place and very enjoyable. Some how the photos from that trip never really got worked on. Better late than never.
A few months ago I learned that you can take a single image and run it through Photomatix. I got good results trying this on some recent pics. Today while reviewing photos I may add to my portfolio, I came across some shots I had really enjoyed taking in Sedona back on New Years day 2008. But when I saw how much shadow there was in the photo, I thought that it was time to try a single image Photomatix. I think it brought the picture up a notch.
Another desert shot that I’m fond of.
Still working on photos I took in Bryce. Decided to publish another one today…. just because it took my breath away remembering that day.
Decided to work on a batch of photos for my portfolio and came across one of my favorite Bryce photos in IR. Since I’d just done a conversion to Black & White using Nik Silver Effects Pro yesterday I thought I’d try it again. I am very impressed.
To be honest I want to try out Photo Galleria, so thought I’d publish a second gallery of San Francisco photos. Hope you enjoy.
I was only in San Francisco for a few days. I’ve been there several times before but was lucky to find plenty of new things to see.
I hiked from Fishermans Wharf to the Golden Gate bridge in on again off again rain. (My favorite weather for photography.) Did that section before, but beyond the bridge, I hadn’t spent much time at the battery. Nor had I hiked down to Marshall Beach. Highly recommended.
I also went to the Sutro Baths. The ruins of a old bathhouse, right on the cliffs by the ocean. I’ve always been a big fan of ruins, and ruins in such a beautiful spot was fantastic. Once done with the baths, we hiked back towards the Golden Gate bridge from the other direction.
I tried my best to not have too many from any one site. The problem was that the Golden Gate bridge was involved in 2 different shoots. But it is an amazing bridge.
Currently watching Kelby Training’s Word Press for Photographers part 2 with RC Concepcion. I didn’t realize that you can take your Flickr Collections and publish them to WP. Seems to work ok with my Atahualpa theme, but wasn’t working right with Auto Focus. UPDATE: Realized that you always have to include a photo for the Auto Focus theme to work. So I added one after the Flickr link.
