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’ve shopped at Pictureline in Salt Lake City frequently – probably to my bank account’s chagrin. So when I saw they were giving away a Canon 5D Mark III on their Facebook page, I had to enter. I have shot Canon for almost a decade and am a big fan on them.
So, I thought many of you might be interested in entering, too. Click Here to visit their Facebook page tab for the giveaway and enter for your chance to win the Canon 5D Mark III camera.
I know it’s coincidental that I’m posting this on April Fool’s Day, but this is no joke. Good luck to everyone, and be sure to share this with your other photographer friends.
In honor of President’s Day, I thought I would share this photo from a trip to Washington, D.C, in February 2009. Before the trip, I rented a fish-eye lens from Pictureline in Salt Lake City so I could play with it during my trip to determine if it’s worth adding to my lens repertoire. That lens explains the outer-edge curves of this photo.
It was a very blustery night at the Washington Monument. At one point, I actually dropped a lens cap and the wind kept it rolling across the floor, with me chasing after it, for a good 30 yards. I felt like an idiot chasing after it, but retrieved it and continued shooting.
Thinking back on it, I wonder how a depth of field change would have enhanced the photo. Maybe keep the first flag in focus, and the others ones more blurred the further away they got. I guess this just means I need to take another trip there to shoot a lot more photos.
And, I decided that I wasn’t quite ready to own a fish-eye lens – mainly because of the price and the amount of use I would get out of it. I’m thinking a macro lens may be next on my list.
