For starters, I know…
I know that I said my photography website would be online in about two or three weeks…I’ve already surpassed that timeframe by…well, I’ve surpassed it.
There is a lot more to getting it online in the form I would like than I thought at first; this, unfortunately, has made the time frame stretch longer than I’d anticipated at the outset. Also, writing has taken a backseat to photography at this point…there simply is not enough time to do everything I would like to do.
Maybe if I didn’t have to sleep.
I wanted to thank all of you who offered up resources for the site…places to get code, people to work on it, 3rd party groups who’d add things in. I decided to go with a friend’s recommendation of her husband who does this sort of thing for a living. We met yesterday and went over all of the details involved and it is my hope that the site will be online in a few more weeks.
It will be worth it…trust me.
Well, I hope it will be worth it, but you know, I am immensely biased when it comes to this thing having poured my blood, sweat, and mega pixels into it for the past month. However, since I am not able to show you the site at the present time, I thought I’d placate you with a few photos from my southern
trip a few weeks ago... Utah
A few people asked how I was able to get images of petroglyphs so early or late in the day with such good lighting and the answer is: slow shutter speeds and a flashlight to ‘paint’ in the image the way you want it.
I share an example of myself with my car at about 10:00 p.m. You can see where I ‘painted in’ the car—as well as myself—with my headlamps; though I admit that it would have been far easier had I taken a decent flashlight with me.
This last shot I call, Holy Horse Dung! Mostly this is because of the way the sunlight slanted down and illuminated this solitary road apple.
I know, it looks delicious.
