Texas Capitol HDR

I attended a Precision Camera sponsored photo walk at the Texas Capitol in Austin and was able to meet some local photographers. I finally got to meet Robert Backman and Dave Wilson and both of these guys are very talented photographers. Robert Backman can be found roaming around various sporting events or working behind the counter at Precision Camera. Dave Wilson is now teaching HDR classes at Precision Camera, so if you want to learn how to shoot HDR or want to get better with this style, make sure to sign up for one of his classes. Don’t forget to ask him about his Texas accent!

The HDR (High Dynamic Range) photos that I posted of the Texas Capitol HDR are 2 of my favorites from that shoot. The Capitol building was under some some reconstruction and upgrades as you can tell by the scaffolding around the dome.  I really like how the clouds were that morning and we were all worried if it was going to rain out the event. When doing multiple exposures prefer to use a tripod as it makes editing so much easier and I usually shoot 7-9 exposures using a Promote Control as my Canon 5D MarkII and my Canon 7D MarkI will only shoot a maximum of 3 exposures. If you are going to shoot hand held without a tripod make sure that your shutter speed is fast enough to prevent any photo blur. The hand held technique has worked for me and it just takes some extra editing to align the photos but I only get 3 exposures with my cameras. My typical work flow includes Lightroom, Photomatix and then some Photoshop work.

Alfredo & Caro Wedding

We were invited to attend Alfredo & Caro’s wedding in El Paso, Texas. It was small ceremony on June 13, 2015  at the Beth El Bible Church located off of Montana Avenue. It was a beautiful ceremony with Pastor Eric Paul performing the services. After the reception at the church we then drove out to the east side of El Paso for the party. It was held at Caro’s relatives house and it was spectacular. this occasion was truly a family affair as everyone pitched in to help provide food and drinks. The cake was as good tasting as it was beautifully decorated. The west Texas sunset provided a spectacular orange glow to completed the wonderful occasion! Best of luck to the newlyweds and Congratulations on the new house!
