Photo of the Day
As this countdown goes on I am surprised that I haven’t had more days like today. I was just completely uninspired to get a shot. I have been very happy with some of the pictures that I have been making lately, but today I just did not know what to make one of. Then I saw the game that we were going to play, and thought that it might make an interesting depth of field shot. I don’t think that this is my best work so far, but it isn’t bad either.
Not much to talk about here. I did up the highlights and clarity in Lightroom, but that is the extent of the adjustments. The biggest technical data that I can speak of here is the fact that I shot this with my new 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. I know that my depth of field is probably too shallow for a really interesting picture, but I really wanted to try some things out. Yesterday I was struggling to keep things in focus. Today I practiced on a stationary subject, but with some movement by myself. Sometimes you have to start off in the basement.
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 1,000 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 17,000 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.
