Monday Photo Roundup - April 22
The good news is that I've been busy... of course, that leads to less blogging, but thanks for stopping by to read this :)
The photo above is for the good folks at the Terrell ISD Excellence Foundation. They do a great job of supplementing the school district in Terrell with grants for equipment, teacher training, and other things that regular school budgets do not cover.
Of course the big news stories of last week were the West, Texas explosion and the bombing at the Boston Marathon.
This slideshow includes some amazing images, including several from east Texas photog ace Mike Stone who went down to West the night of the explosion.
At an $800/day rate (plus expenses, of course) I gotta wonder if anyone is paying for a personal vacation photographer. On second thought, it could be a pretty fun gig for a single guy or gal who likes to travel. Come to think of it, for the right price you can hire me to go on vacation with you. The joys of traveling with a two-year-old will just be a bonus for you :)
If you have some time to burn, the "learning to see" series of posts at Digital Photo School is an interesting read.
Good post on getting better color balance at night. (and why some light sources look way off ... hint, they are way off.)
Very cool project - lights on wakeboards for long-exposure light trails.
In the market for a new camera strap?
Have a great week everyone ...
