The usual photo suspects gathered for our first photo walk in the downtown area of Jacksonville. In-the-moment photography is a weakness of mine and I looked forward to the immediacy of everything. We set a time limit of about 15 minutes per location and I further limited myself to only using my 16mm lens.
None of these pictures are going to be award winners but it was a fun exercise.
I finally made the time this morning to install a bunch of Lightroom Presets I got with a 5 Day Deal I bought *cough* a year or two ago. A quick scan of the large library of unpublished photos turned up this test photo I had done when scouting the location for my first timelapse. Look below the fold for the other two images.
It was foggy and cold when I took this picture (My hands turned bright red over the course of the shoot). I met some out of town sightseers who were sad that the water taxi wasn’t running that day. I hope they finish the repairs on the bridge and get the Riverwalk rebuilt in time for spring festivities. Maybe one day I will find jeans that fit me that aren’t so baggy.
They say that sunrise videos are the holy grail of time-lapse and I’m beginning to see why. My first attempt turned out ok. I’m still getting used to the gear, but I thought it would be a sharper image. When I compare that video to my second attempt, it is so much closer to professional though.
