Bannack 17x 65

2/22/11 - 4:49 p.m. Bannack, MT

Canon EOS Rebel T2i, Landscape, f/9.0 1/200 sec

EDITS: Dynamic Photo, Photoshop Adjustment Layers.

Process: I chose this image because I knew I wanted to print a Panorama to put in my hallway. I also feel like with this image. I always knew what was going on and so I was able to make it look the way I wanted it to.
To start off I brought the image into photoshop and merged them, I then took it into Dynamic Photo and put it through the HDR process because I really wanted to make the colors more vivid and bring out the colors in the sky. Afterwards, I brought it into Photoshop and made adjustment layers to bring out different parts of the photo. I also added a levels and color Balance. I used the level to darken it then I masked out the middle so it only affected the edges. I also cropped the length a bit.
Printing it wasn't difficult, everything went smoothly because I followed the correct process. I did have a hard time finding a frame though. So after buying a few full length mirrors that were kind of , bleh. I ended up going to ace Hardware and building my own with would that I had them precut for me. Angles and all. I then put it together with nails, that didn't work, and then screws which totally worked. Overall, I'm very happy with my result and I'm excited to hang it in my house.

My 3 image HDR didn't turn out how I wanted to. I didn't quite understand the concept of HDR so my final image isn't so great. If I were to go back out to back and do this one again I think it would turn out much better

Night and Lights

I heart Jimmy Johns; 2/20/11 2:17 a.m. Rexburg, ID; f/6.3, 1.6sec, Shutter Priority; Canon EOS Rebel T2i: This is my Camera Motion Painting. It is of Jimmy Johns and you can see the sign "Jimmy Johns" repeated three times throughout the picture. I drew an upside down heart with my camera which made it appear the correct way.
The Snow Plower: 2/20/2:07 a.m. Rexburg, ID; f 6.3, 0.8 sec; Shutter Priority; Canon EOS Rebel T2i: This image is actually for my moving objects at night. I took this picture while the snowplower was coming towards me. I had my lights off so I didn't let in too much light and then I realized, "with my lights off he might not be able to see me back here." So I had to hurry and get out of there. It was quite the adventure.
Glow Stick Twirl- a-whirl: 2/20/11; 2:45 a.m. Rexburg, ID, f/6.3; 13.0 sec; Canon EOS Rebel T2i: This is my Light Painting. I used glow sticks and set it for 13 seconds. I spun 4 different glow sticks in front of the camera. Some more than one to create this image that looks like the edge of a flower.
Jimmy; 2/20/11 2:14 a.m. Rexburg, ID; f/6.3, 1/10 sec; Canon EOS Rebel T2i: With this image I tried using one of the effects from that Dan image from our Case Study. Meaning I set the camera up took the picture and then while the shutter was still open I turned my car headlights on for a second and turned them back off so it didn't let in too much light. Justwanted to show my attempt.
Cowboy Bar: 1/30/11; 6:00 p.m. Jackson,Wy; f/4.6, 1/50sec; Canon EOS Rebel T2i: This image is actually from a couple weeks ago but I wanted to add it on for this week anyway. I just liked the way it turned out.
