Photo of the Day
Since today is the birthday of Elvis I thought that I would post this image from Graceland that I took in 2006. I was really just learning the camera, but it says a lot for what these new cameras can do when someone who can’t use the thing takes a picture, and it turns out pretty good. I liked the unique nature of this pool room at Graceland so I wanted to capture an image to remember it by. It must have been something else to live in Graceland. Every room is like another sort of amusement park.
As I said before this was a pretty good shot just using the little green box on my camera. I did run it through Lightroom to try and bring out a few of the highlights in the image. I didn’t want to overdo it, but I think that I did a good job here of trying to get this picture close to what I saw in real life. It is hard to get a good shot like this in a dark room without a tripod. The good news for me was that early on in my photography I didn’t know that so I had nothing holding me back from taking this shot.
