Libby Hill HDR
A little bit of HDR playing. I went to Libby Hill with Sooz a few days ago. I saw this in my head, but the dynamic range was way beyond what my camera could handle, so the next logical thing to do was an HDR…or graduated ND filter, BUT I don’t have one of those. Anyways, I haven’t done a HDR in a long time, and I think this one turned out pretty well. A more realistic HDR feel.
Week 10/52 of my Project 52.
So my boss took me flying with his dad on Sunday on a little propeller plane. Other than the slight bouts of motion sickness, it was such a great experience. It made everything seem so small even though we were just 2000ft in the air. We couldn’t get too close to the city of Richmond because of all the hassle that we would have had to gone through, but this is a pretty good view I think. Being able to fit a lot of the downtown area into one frame made the bouts of motion sickness well worth it.
The day was slightly hazy so I had to kick up the contrast to compensate which made everything really dark as well. I then figured since everything looked so tiny, why not make it a faux tilt shift? With the high contrast and weird color casts I had to compensate for, the faux tilt shift look came out really well.
September 11, 2011 marked the 10 year anniversary of the attacks, but this post will not be about that. It will be about a more joyous and festive event that occurred for the first time in good ol Richmond, VA. RVA Music Fest made its first appearance with several local and regional acts throughout the day and some national talents. More after the jump.
Richmond Unite (website) had their #DSRPT11 Conference at the Greater Richmond Convention Center with guest speaker Sir Richard Branson as the, for a lack of better terms and my background in DJ events, the headliner. In case you don’t know who he is, he is the founder of Virgin Companies. So Virgin Mobile, Virgin Records, Virgin Air, Virgin Galactic are a few of the companies that he owns. More after the jump.
Walking around the James River Pipeline area is very interesting. The people you run into and the things you see are just so random at times. I haven’t been to this place in more than a year. Maybe a year and a half. I was on a 9 hour photo walk with some buddies last time. More after the jump.
