Things have been really hectic around here over the past couple months. I have a few posts going live this week that I have already written talking about some of the things going on for me lately which I hope you will have the opportunity to read. One of the more recent discoveries is little Oliver here. My wife and I had been hearing a lot of very loud mewing going on outside over the past few days and on my second attempt, we were able to discover the source. It turns out that little Oliver here had taken refuge on our neighbor’s patio and was in desperate need of help. We gave him food and water and took him to the vet to make sure that he was ok. He was given a clean bill of health and we have been caring for him since. He is fast becoming part of the family and we are very glad that we could help to save him. Here is a picture of our new family member Oliver with his new friend Sam!
I had a great time shooting at Toroweap about a month ago. I ended up with a really nice shot of the Supermoon, but I also had an opportunity to grab a couple of shots at sunrise as well. I have to say that the post processing with this shot was a pain in the ass. For sometime, I have not been using any tone-mapping software to blend my images, favoring to do it manually in Photoshop. That technique lead to a lot of complications that had to be overcome with this particular image. The great thing about challenges is that you get to learn a lot in the process and I’m pretty happy with how this one came out, although that probably won’t stop me from processing it again to refine some techniques.
