Restoration

Sometimes you need a refresh, am I right? I get mine when I’m out on a road trip following my passion… photography. Much like I did during a previous epic road trip along Route 66, I’ll share some of the photography from this most recent trip here on the blog. I’ll also post to my Instagram feed, where I post as… wait for it… @jacquesgude

 

R.I.P. Merle Dixon…

My daughter and I are HUGE fans of AMC’s awesome The Walking Dead TV show, so I was super stoked top be able to visit some of the shooting locations for the show in and around Georgia. Here’s the location where good ol’ Merle Dixon met his end… redeemed!

This way to Terminus…

The time of day…

Yeah… the time of day matters. But sometimes you can’t control that and you take what you can get. I shot this one of Natural Bridge in Virginia when the sun was pretty much at its highest and brightest, but was on my way to somewhere else so could not be here at a more ideal time of tay when the light would be less harsh. Still, I thought I’d post this shot to the blog in hopes that it will inspire me to return to Natural Bridge for another shoot either ’round sun-up or sun-down. This was from a handheld shot of 3 brackets, merged together in the most recent version of Aurora HDR 2018. I had set auto-alignment to ‘ON’, but still see some double imagery in parts of this shot. Not sure why, but will investigate and let those of you interested know what’s what.

Exploring the woods

Took the bike and camera out for a ride yesterday to see wha I can find. I’m not entirely happy with this shot, but it was an experiment really… trying to see what would happen if I shot the scene with one RAW image exposed for the highlights only. I then used Aurora HDR 2018 to bring those shadows back. I’ll probably try the same thing with Lightroom to see if I get a different result. I suppose it’s an okay result, but certainly not superb. Maybe I should have exposed more the to right (a little more bias towards the shadows), or perhaps shot two brackets (one for shadows and one for highlights).
