Week 2 Knights and Castles



Well this isn't actually a castle but doesn't it kinda look like one. I think this is my most successful HDR, High Dynamic Range, photograph to date. I made a series of almost a dozen photographs all with slightly different exposures and then merged them with software enabling there to be details in the dark shadowy arch and the bright sky. This is actually a memorial student union and through the arch you can see the old capital that is now also part of the college. both of these buildings are among the most notable features of Columbia.

The HDR is my photo of the week but I also made some other nice ones on that photo walk. Doesn't it look like a castle a little? it was a perfect day for photography with some light stringy clouds, a setting sun and a deep blue sky. I also finally remembered to put my polarizer filter on which helped deepen the blue and saturate the golden sunset. I wish I had remembered earlier in the photo walk.

Week 50 Snow

This week I had some fun homework assignments photographed some playing Xbox and exploring in the snow. 








Week 27 FGC!

I have so many favorite photographs from this week. I was at FGC(Friends General Conference) so there was loads to photograph and I was in a photography workshop so I was even more photographically active then usual. I worked very hard to slim down the hundreds to just these few very best. The last two you need to know a little bit about the Quaker activities durring FGC. The first of the two is of wink which is a wrestling and kissing game. I wont go into the full description here but check out this article that talkes about it, http://quaker.wikia.com/wiki/Wink_(game). I will say however that it can be extremely photographic but is a good challenge to photograph successfully. The very last photograph is of one of the AYFers(Adult Young Friends) participating in the ritual celebration feast at the end of the week. It is done in worshipful silence and you can NOT feed yourself but have to be fed by others, and you get to feed others :) Loads of fun and a great way to wrap up a bondin…

Week 24 Farm Work

This week there was lots of work to do on Round River Farm. The biggest task being cleaning all the manure out of the barn and chicken coop. It made a huge pile. There were also lots of vegetables as is to be expected. I also took a walk to the nearby lake and saw some beautiful flowers.
