Advertising links

On two occasions now I have found adware on my computer that makes links from key words on my blog posts. When I discover them I remove them. It's unfair for these company's to use my site to advertise their products which I neither get compensated for or even endorse. I do sometimes use links in my posts so for now at least if you see a single word link such as "book" or something similar don't click it.

Old Light

Some of my family came from Missouri and Kentucky. My Mom once told me her Grandfather claimed to have known the Dalton Brothers and met members of the Hole In the Wall Gang. My Grandmother told me a story once how their general store got robbed by some masked gunmen. She asked her older sister "Dora you have a gun behind the counter, why didn't you shoot them??" Dora said "I think I might have known one of those boys." Of course as family history gets passed down the stories tend to get changed a little. This is a version I recall hearing.
This however is a photo of me as a teenager goofing around with friends which I scanned in to the computer and messed around with to make it look like an old (well even older than it is) photo.

Stolen Light

This is a play on the title of a film called Stolen Life I got to spend on the set for a couple of days. The director of photography set up the light and I used it for photos. They were all very nice people and I really enjoyed the time I got with them. Here are some photos from one of the days.







These are photos I was able to shoot in between takes. I have photos from today which have an entirely different mood and are for another post soon.

How Many Arms Do Salmon Have?

It's been so long since I posted. I hadn't realized time was flying by so. Jenn and I went to the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues festival. We had an absolutely great time and heard lots of fantastic music. Of course I had my camera with me and took lots of photos. Here are a few.

Carsten

In Fort Langley today with Dar we came across Carsten playing his Fender guitar. I asked if he minded being photographed and he was good with it so I took some shots while he played Little Wing.

Shine The Light

I truly believe the time you spend with a photo after it's taken is every little bit as important as the instant you take it.

When The Lights Go Out

Just because the sun has set, you don't have to put the camera away. 

 I used the 24-70 2.8 at 50mm 1/30th sec f2.8 iso 3200.  Take here.

In Another Light

The trouble for me with the studio shoot was I ended up with so many photos I really liked it was tough to narrow down which ones to show. I knew I was going to try converting one to monochrome and even then I couldn't decide and had to do four. Then I finally narrowed it down to this one by the scientific process of eeny meeny miny moe.
 

 Shot with the 24-70 2.8 at 70 mm 160th sec f11. Light was by a beauty dish in front and above with a silver reflector facing up in front of Jessica. I did some adjustments in Lr5 then Nik Color Effects Pro 4 and Silver Effects Pro 2
