I have a very vivid memory of the first HDR image that I produced that I really liked. It was taken more than 3 years ago of Holy Trinity Polish Mission Church. After taking this shot, I promised myself that I would return with a wide angle lens. Sure enough, I did yesterday.
ShutterBiker October 15, 2012 |
This past weekend, I woke up bright and early for my first ever photography bike ride with my buddy, Cris. While it was a bit more overcast than we would have liked, I think the bike offers me a way to carry my equipment in the city, travel a decent distance, and not have to worry about parking anywhere. Hopefully the winter weather holds off a little bit longer so that I can get a few more of these in this year.
This shot was taken at Northerly Island, just south of the Shedd aquarium near the new prairie lands.
Evan and Amanda September 26, 2012 |
While I don't plan on making a living out of shooting weddings any time soon, my friends Evan and Amanda got married this weekend and encouraged me to give it a shot at their wedding. Here are a few of my favorite shots...
On the last afternoon during my trip to the Bahamas, I headed out in an attempt to photograph a lighthouse that I noticed very far in the distance during the week. The lighthouse was at least a few miles away but seemed reachable just by following the beach. Unfortunately, that was not the case some huge boulders blocking the beach ended my attempt to photograph this elusive lighthouse. On the way back, I noticed this abandoned wedding setup and posted up for a shot.
Leap of Faith August 07, 2012 |
Here is a shot self-portrait of me going down the "Leap of Faith" waterslide at the Bahamas resort in Atlantis. This actually isn't a self-portrait and I should be giving credit to my mom who took the photo. And yes, that is a shark in the foreground, but don't worry the sharks can't actually make it into the swimming area of the ride. Actually, that isn't quite true either...
Power Tower July 31, 2012 |
This shot was taken at Atlantis hotel and casino in Nassau, Bahamas. It amazes me how this place goes from being packed with people to a deserted island in just a couple of hours as the sun starts to go down. Thanks to the gorgeous paradise island light, I was able to capture this serene view of "Power Tower" home to some of the more intense waterslides on the island.
Back in May I was fortunate to watch many bahamanian sunsets and nearly every single one of them were as nice as the one pictured here. This was taken right on the Atlantis beach.
Our cabin from a couple weekends back.
This was taken on a trip a couple of weekends back to Serenity Springs in LaPorte, Indiana.
