Power outages and photo booths

Its been quite a week here in Baker.At the start of theAdd Image week we had rolling power outages and spent two days with only having power for an hour at a time.There wasn't much of a chance to take any photos but there was a great chance to spend time with family.

The store that I work for has just gotten a photo booth.Its a Kodak digital print booth and I was asked to set it up.It was easy enough and it produces a great print.It will be nice to get an 8x10 print from my camera that I don't have to wait to get it back in the mail from some processing plant in the south or have to spend a small fortune on ink from a printer.

I am still strugling with getting white snow.this photo is called croses

Star Wars ,Experimentation and Battery Power

What dose Star Wars ,Experimentation and Battery Power have in common?The answer a Monday night.
I have always been a fan of the photos that have lights streaking through the air or the blurred headlights on a race car in the dawn at Le mans.
I have always wanted to try a shot like this but til I have got a good dslr I haven't been able to.
Tonight my son and I created the above photo.The editing was done in gimp.A freeware ,picture editing program that is a rival to photoshop.
The battery part of the title comes from a lesson learned.Always start a project with a full battery.
Mine died before I could finish the series of shots.I know however that it will be a theme that I will return to.

Easter Morning

Well its Easter morning and another decent day to start shooting.Its cold but bearable.The biggest problem with shooting at this time of year you have a lot snow still every where and it like a giant reflector of the sun.
The hardest thing is to shoot snow.It always comes out bluish grey.I have tried hard to find tricks but I always get that grey cast.
Today's photo is called grass in the snow.

Sunny days

This morning I got up and went for a drive with my camera.I dint find much to shoot but I got one good shot.

I am still listening to a lot of pod casts.The one that intrigues me the most is tips from the top floor.You can find it on I tunes.

The photo of the day is one of my favorite subject,the dog and the hut.
