Photo Poster

2. Bannack, 2/10/12, 2:45pm, 
3. Aperture priority,SS1/40, f/3.5, Canon Rebel
4. For this photo I processed the image in photomatix. I then changed it into a black and white image and bumped up the sharpening. I then bumped it up more and masked out some sharpening so the corner was more in focus.
5.when looking through my pictures I had quite a few of images that I liked. I wanted to choose something that I would want to hang up someday in my home. I liked the way the HDR tonemapped the image and brought out the detail of the trunk. I edited it as I explained in question 4. I did some edits in photomatix and then brought it into photoshop to do the sharpening. I liked the way it turned out. The reason I chose to place it in a turquoise frame was so the image would pop. I think it was good contrast and turned out to be something I am really proud of.

Fine art Template

Original-1/15/2012 12:52pm Hayden Idaho SS1/32, F5.6

Rusty Bumper-1/20/12,10:45am, Driggs, SS1/80, f/5.6, Canon Rebel

For these two photos I did the fine art template by following the tutorial. both these photos were not edited before being used.

Night Photos

Light Painting
Polar-2/19/12, 8:16pm, Coeur d' Alene, SS/6.0, f/4.0,Canon Rebel

For this photo I set up in my basement with the lights completely off the tripod on the floor, I then set the camera to a 6 second shutter and painted around the animals. when editing I changed the coloring in camera raw and also added grain to the photo so it looked more antique.

Light Graffitti
I<3U-2/19/12, 8:55pm, Coeur d'Alene Idaho, SS/20.0sec, f/5.6, Canon Rebel

I liked this photo mostly because of the meaning behind it. I had my fiancee stand in the snow and use his phone to write out I <3 u. I liked that you can see his shadow underneath each letter. I opened up photoshop and sharpened the image and then changed it to gray-scale

Audi-2/19/12,9:11pm, Coeur d'Alene Idaho, SS 1.3sec,f/3.5, Canon rebel

I chose this photo because i liked the radius of light coming from the steering wheel. In this photo I shot it and when the shutter was open, I zoomed out. When editing it, I just sharpened it in photoshop.

Same photo, But processed through HDR photomatix

Say Cheese-Bannack,2/10/12,4:45pm, SS1/200,f/16,Canon Rebel

-These are my favorite five photos. The first picture is of canning jars. I liked the color of the jars compared to the curtains. I edited this in camera raw to bring out the color and then sharpened it in Photoshop
-Picture two is of the baby carriage, I edited this in camera raw, changed it to gray-scale and then added a tint of yellow to make it sepia.
-Picture three is the school desk. I loved the texture of the can. I edited it in camera raw,messed with color temperature and also sharpened it in Photoshop.
-My final picture was of Nate at bannack taking a photo of me. I made him laugh somehow and captured his genuine smile. All I did to this picture was changed it to grey-scale and sharpened it in Photoshop

I was really impressed with my three shot HDR, I uploaded the picture into dynamic photo and then edited it with the slider bars. I love the detail it brought out.

Bottle Original-Bannack,2/10/12,3:32pm, F/5.6, SS1/40,Canon Rebel

The second picture I edited I ran a single picture through Dynamic photo. it brightened up the greens and sharpened up the whole image. Its awesome what those HDR programs can do!

 Knob-Bannack,2/10/12,2:18pm,SS1/50,F4.5, Canon Rebel
Floral vinyl-Bannack,2/10/12,1:21pm SS1/50,F4.5,Canon Rebel

For this edit I merged together two images, one of a door knob and the second peeling floral vinyl. I edited both images before on camera raw, and then when I brought them into photoshop I blended them, turned the opacity of the floral way down and masked out the white so the floral came out only in the door knob

Reverse Shallow Depth

Fence Post, Bannack, 2/10/12 1:04pm,SS1/500 F3.5,Canon Rebel

Front Door, Bannack,2/10/12,1:04pm,SS1/500,F3.5,Canon Rebel

For shallow depth I decided to take a picture of a fence post and a house in the background. and then reversed for the second shot. I like how in the first picture you can really see the detail of the fence post. To edit these photos I opened them up in camera raw and changed the warmth of the photo. I also brought it into photoshop and sharpened it.
