Those Persimmons at Allied Arts in Menlo Park


While I was out running errands on Friday, I stopped by Menlo Park’s Allied Arts Guild with my new Fujifilm X-E2 camera and took a few shots (see my Flickr set).

I tried to compose this one to have the permissions be a diagonal line – adding visual interest. Post-processed in Lightroom 5 using VSCO Film 01 – Fuji 160C film emulation.

More HDR Photography – Allied Arts Guild in Menlo Park

It was another bright sunny January early afternoon today – following a clear, crisp night last night with temps early this morning in the mid-30’s and frost on the deck!

HDR – Fully Processed

After (seemingly!) playing endlessly with Twitter and FriendFeed this morning, I decided to leave the computer behind and to head outdoors to do some more mid-day, bright sun, high dynamic range (HDR) photography. For me, HDR is perfect for mid-day, high contrast sun/shadow photography – just the opposite of that special early morning / early evening soft light that photographers otherwise learn to love.

This time, I wanted to stay close to home and minimize the travel time. Stanford University is always an option – it’s literally just around the corner and is where I started my HDR exploits in early September 2008. There’s a world of photo opportunities still waiting for me there at Stanford. But, been there, done that! I was looking for new adventures today!
