Happy Birthday King!

elvis pool room

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.

Technical Data

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.
