Night lights for Cinco de Mayo on Daniel Island

Echoes of Past Lives

Considering the image:  Happy Cinco de Mayo.  This is a colorful reminder of past celebrations.  Its 10 PM and people are just getting started.  I’m finishing this blog entry and heading to bed.

Making the photograph:   These images are easy to create.  Simply find some colorful lights at night, frame them in some pleasing manner, back the focus off, set your aperture to its largest setting (smallest number, which in this case was f/2.8) and fire away.  Try backing off the exposure 1-2EV as well to help saturate the colors.  Post processing was all in Apple Aperture 2 adding a bit more saturation, contrast, and then sharpening before export.  Easy day, which is a good thing when you can’t head out the door to photograph until 10 PM.

365:FIVE

Opposing

Today is a graphic image of a building near my workplace.  The strong lines and monotone nature of the concrete structure lend themselves nicely to this sort of image.  Shooting from a diagonal added drama to what might otherwise be a boring image.

Lesson for the day:  Look at old things in new ways.  One of the benefits I hope to gain from this project is learning more about what my camera sees of the world.

Critiques are always welcome here.  I welcome dialog on any aspect of this project.  Thanks!
