Seemed Like A Good Shot At The Time

on

I drove way the fuck out into the woods today for a thing for one of the girls.  It was a gorgeous drive – and of course, I took the camera.  I found a couple of things I wanted to shoot along the way……these are the two shots that had me going “OMG – this is going to be awesome”…….

……only be disappointed with the results.

This shot does not capture the view – miles upon miles gorgeous view.

The foreground of this shot are these gorgeous yellow flowers.  Why can’t you tell?  Sun was in a crappy place – and what I saw as a great show only worked from a particular elevation.  I was down too low.  Cropping only got me so far.  And tweaking the yellow – well, made it better (kind of) but I couldn’t fix the trees because, well – the light again.  Overall, I was disappointed with my ability to capture what I was seeing.

I took more photos of the stuff at camp.  The program Indigo does is all about cooking in the wild – harvesting from the land including the animals and cooking over an open fire or wood burning stoves/ovens.  Today, they invited the parents out for brunch.  Each kid made a dish to serve their parents.

They did a great job.

Then after, we got a mini-tour of the place and found an egg sack laid by the newts.  That was pretty cool.

    Have you ever played around with HDR? In the wrong hands you can end up with way over-processed, fake looking photos, but some subtle editing can increase the dynamic range and maybe overcome some of the limitations of the lighting you were dealing with today

      I actually have. I tried with both photos but they looked REALLY wrong. It was sad. I am still playing with them. Maybe I’ll figure out something.
