Bonus Photo of the Day
Yesterday at the Feast of the Hunter’s Moon I had a blast shooting in about every direction. The people wanted their picture taken, and most of them had something interesting enough to try and capture. I really will add this to my list of things to do in the future. It was a blast. Did I mention that it was a blast?
This shot almost didn’t happen. I walked right by this taro card reader without even seeing her corner in a tent. It was about fifteen feet away that I saw her sign, and doubled back to see if I could get an angle. I loved how her eyes were so focused reading her subject. I knew right away when I saw how the shot came out that it would be a bonus to my photo of the day.
This was shot with my 70-200mm lens with the 1.4x converter on it. I tried to find a preset in Lightroom that I liked to use, but really could not find any. I did not try ‘the 300 look’ that I got from Matt Kloskowski because I use it so much already. I decided to give it a go, and I think that it added exactly what I wanted to the shot. It really seems to pull the fortune teller right out of the shot. I guess that I use the preset a lot for a reason.
Kelby Worldwide Photowalk
Here is that part of the post where I talk about the photowalk that I am leading on campus after the Wisconsin game in October. The date is October 13th to be exact, and the walk will start at 4 o’clock est at the Neil Armstrong Statue in front of the Armstrong Hall of Engineering. Over 1,100 photowalks are planned around the world. If you are not near West Lafayette then you kind find a walk near you on the Kelby site. Sign up now to be part of this event. Nearly 21,000 walkers have already signed up so far. Activity has picked up a bit on the Purdue sites even with the short time being posted. You don’t have to be a pro (I am far from it) to attend. Any kind of camera is welcome as well. Here are a few links to the various sites which promote the event. If you want to sign up you should do so on the Kelby site in order to be eligible for the prizes though.
