June 29, 2011 :: Spread Your Wings
There were a number of ducks just swimming back and forth by our house today. I had a chance to get a number of pictures.
Thanks for the comments on yesterday's picture!
June 28, 2011 :: HDR Wood
I usually like the way wood looks in HDR images, so I went outside to get a few sets to practice with and try to get this HDR thing down.
Right as I walked on the deck 2 herons flew right by. I hadn't turned my camera on and it was still set from the U2 concert the other night. Lorraine said she saw them around the same time yesterday, so I may have to park myself the next few days. I do like the way this turned out so not all was lost. Any suggestions on the HDR?
June 27, 2011 :: U2 & The Claw
We went to the U2 concert in East Lansing along with 65,000 other people. It was held in Spartan Stadium and they had this ridiculous stage. SmugMug's size limit didn't let me post the full stitched version of the stage but you can see it here http://joshmales.com/U2-2011-TheClawBig.jpg.
Florence and the Machine opened up and played for 45 minutes or so, and then U2 played for almost 2 hours. The "special effects" were pretty impressive for a live show.
In this picture the video board is extended. It was really cool to see this thing start moving. You'll have to go to the gallery with the rest of the pictures to really get an idea of this craziness. It started out as a 360 degree video board at the top of the stage so that we could see close ups, then during one of the songs it started moving down. http://themales.smugmug.com/Music/U2/17765177_nKRV9h
Two of the rules were no bags and no lens longer than 3 inches. I decided to go with the 50mm.
