One More Again

One More Again, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Alright just one more “Shoot the Shooter” from the Regatta. These are a couple of friends shooting with some big glass from the shore. Just love adding to my Flickr set and now that I think about it they may already be in the set.

Here we go with another in the “Shoot the Shooter” series. This is one of a new friend of mine that shoots for the Record Searchlight. His name is Hung Vu and he does some nice work. He got taken out in a little Boston Whaler and they got him in close for some nice photos.

Stephen with Parents

Stephen with Parents, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

The Graduate! Here is Stephen with Mom & Dad. Ah! The happy young man. I think my Grandson was not very excited about school ending. After seeing the graduation and close group of Seniors at his school I can understand. I think it would have been more fun to graduate in a class of 13 than the class of 600 or so that I did so with. At least it would have been a completely different experience.

Get in Line

One more (not the last) from the Regatta. I tried something a little different here with the point of focus on the second boat and used the Adjustment Brush in LightRoom to try to bring the eyes to that second sailor and boat. Not sure how well it works as I know it bothers some viewers to not have the closest subject in focus. We shall see.

More sail boats from the Regatta. Too bad the weather was so nice. Some rain clouds and wind would have really upped the ante.

Love

Love, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Love. That’s what Stephen was sending to his fellow classmates today at his graduation. It was a great day seeing this boy (soon to be a man) finish his high school days.
It was also an interesting day for me and my Rebel T2i. First of all the ceremony was at the Fairgrounds in Ukiah, CA and in this large building were some really cool (NOT) lights. What I mean was some Sodium Vapor or some sort and a few other kinds as well. I did have my bag with my xRite color chart with me so I used the back of a program to set a custom White Balance. It wasn’t great but it was way better than some of the other choices were looking. Also, because of the light’s brightness (or lack of) I got a chance to try the HI ISO setting on my Rebel. Boy talk about some noise. Glad I don’t have to use that too often. Of course the noise was way better than blurry photos would have been.

Tower House

Tower House, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

The Tower House out past the Power House on the other side of Whiskeytown Lake. Not really sure if this building is the Towerhouse but it is at the park area. Some great stuff from the 1800’s and it seemed a likely candidate for Silver Efex.

Almost There

Almost There, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

It’s been awhile since I did a Self-Portrait but I wanted to show Andrew how I would look with at 10 seconds with a 15 second exposure. Told him it was the ghost of grandpa. I just surprised I could stand still enough to recognize who it was.
