Since January I have been sharing photos on my blog. Ones that I found interesting, or ones that I was particularly proud of for one reason or another. So as the Salt Lake County Fair photography contest approaches (this Saturday), I thought I would reach out to my readers to see which three photos I should submit and why.
Here are nine photos I am debating between, but if there are others that I shared on my blog that you like, let me know and I will see which ones I end up submitting. Thanks in advance for any suggestions and critiques.
Let me know which of these nine you like best and why. It’ll help me decide which ones to enter into the Salt Lake County Fair.
We spent two nights at the St Regis Hotel in Park City, Utah this weekend for my brother-in-law’s wedding. Saturday morning, we spend a good three hours playing in the pool. I, of course, had my GoPro with me so I could try to get some really cool shots. I used the setting that shot 10 photos in one second, then pieced this photo together of the jump.
I learned a little late, that there is a split second delay from hitting the button until it snaps the first photo. Plus, you wouldn’t think that in such a short period of time, the camera would move, but I found that each photo was off just a little, so it didn’t mesh together as cleanly as I would have liked.
Overall, it was a fun time and a great wedding. Hope you enjoy the photo, and I’ll share other outtakes from the pool on my Carltonaut Facebook page, so be sure to follow me there, too.
I usually don’t reach out to others to ask them to vote for my photo when it’s in a photo contest, but I really like this photo of my daughter that I snapped at a wedding last year and think it is a great candid portrait.
I know there are a lot of great photos out there, but I hope you’ll help a fellow amateur photographer out and click on the link to vote for this photo in Pictureline’s weekly photo contest.
Thanks in advance to all those who’ll take a moment to vote.
I was vacationing with my family in Bear Lake when I saw the email on my iPhone about this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge. I went through my camera bag to survey my equipment and made a game plan for Saturday to capture movement.
GoPro? Check. Waterproof case? Check. Boat? Check. Tube? Check.
Let the photography adventure begin.
Once we got the troubled boat out of the harbor (long story), we loaded it up with life jackets and family (ages 3 to 65) and headed out on the water. When it was my turn to get into the tube, I grabbed my GoPro and jumped in. My sister got in the other tube and off we went.
I originally set my GoPro on video, but once my sister fell off, I switched over to a photo every 0.5 seconds and the boat floored it. My goal, as weird as it sounds, was to get a cool “biffing” shot, and so I was pretty excited when I went through my photos at the end of the day and found this photo mixed amidst a ton of other ones only half as cool.
I found some other outtakes from the day’s events and shared them on my Facebook page. Check em out!
Working at a hospital usually doesn’t allow us to produce videos that are meant to be funny. We usually do stuff that shares what we do, along with our expertise. So when I came up with the idea for this funny, yet appropriate, Fourth of July video, I was pretty excited.
So, in honor of our nation’s birthday, here’s a great video of Uncle Sam getting his annual check-up at Intermountain Medical Center. Enjoy the video, and I invite you to share it with your friends and family to wish them a Happy Fourth of July.
Filmed using my Canon 60D, which I have used to produce a plethora of other videos. I had the actors repeat the exact same script about four times, filming from a different angle for each “performance.” That is what allowed for the numerous angles, using only one camera.
