Today, Wilk and I went skiing! It was our first time to Stevens this season. Overall, it was a good day. There were even peeks of sunshine throughout the day. At the top of one of the lifts, we had this awesome view of the peaks of the other mountains. I tried to take a panorama shot of the scene, because it was so pretty. And then I used photoshop and the cloning tools to stitch together the seams of the pictures. I think it turned out pretty decently.
It’s day one of Bumbershoot. I only had my point’n'shoot with me because the Bumbershoot ticket claimed that I couldn’t take a camera onto the grounds with a detachable lens. I think this picture would have been awesome with my DSLR with the color of the sky and the glow on the fountain. It’s just alright with the point’n'shoot.
We took a quick sweep of the show floor at PAX before the Assassin’s Creed panel. This was one of the first statues that we ran into. All I had was my point’n'shoot today. The flash went off for this photo which took a lot away I think. I think quite a bit of depth away especially.
Just a couple weeks after my first visit to Leavenworth, ever, I’m back! We went tubing this time. I only had my point’n'shoot and the image turned out terribly overexposed, in my opinion. I messed with the brightness, contrast, shadows, and exposure on the image to make it just a little better. I chose this particular image because the entire street is full of these over-sized hanging flower baskets. I feel like this image shows the size of the flower basket with people also in the photo as we walked passed.
These are just a few of the pictures. For the entire set, see my flickr page.
Below are a few of the pictures I liked from the trip. The two upper images and the lower right image are from the ferry rides. I love looking at the San Juan Islands, I think that whole area is beautiful. The lower left image is from the kayak. We were in the Strait of San Juan and that land, way off in the distance is Canada! I didn’t bring my DSLR because I didn’t want to take it kayaking and I didn’t want to leave it on the shore. Maybe I’ll spend a whole weekend out there sometime, so I can actually have time to wander around and explore the islands with my DSLR.
A bunch of us took a day trip to the San Juan Islands to go kayaking. The trip was a lot fun! Other than the ridiculous current we had to deal with when kayaking it was awesome. I saw killer whales and porpoises in the wild for the first time ever! I was so excited. (Of course I never had my camera ready, but that’s ok, because it gave me the chance to just enjoy seeing them.)
On the ferry ride back I decided to walk around the boat and take pictures. There was this couple standing by the rail as the sun was setting. I have no idea who they are but I really like the way their shadows look on the deck and the reflection of the sun in the water. I had a really hard time trying to decide which picture from the San Juan trip to post, but there was just something about the composition of this photo that I really liked. I’ll post more photos from the trip soon.
I had to rotate it a little, and then I raised the contrast and lowered the brightness, but I didn’t do anything other than that.
Today, we went white water rafting in the Wenatchee River and it was amazing! I didn’t take my camera on the river because of the risk of losing it in the case I got thrown out of the raft. Rafting was a ton of fun and I’m so glad that I did it. On the drive back, we stopped in Leavenworth for dinner. This was my first trip to Leavenworth.
I only had my point’n'shoot at the time, so this was the best I could do with the lighting. I lowered the brightness and raised the contrast to enhance the colors a bit.
The battery in my DSLR was dead, so I picked up my point’n'shoot. The flash made any picture I took look ugly so I tried to see what I could do without it. Eventually, I embraced the blurriness and tried to see what I could do with the effect.
We spent another Saturday skiing. The sun was out for much of the day, and with some cloud, it was creating interesting shadow on the mountainside.
Most of this picture was blown out so I lowered the brightness and raised the contrast. I think it turned out a better with the changes.
We went night skiing at Stevens on Saturday. The fog was really patchy. The base of the mountain was super foggy, but when we got to the top of one of the lifts, it was clear. As we looked down towards the base, we could see the various patches of fog.
