Raindrops keep falling on my car...

So its been super dew-y every morning here for some reason recently.  Today, I decided to see how the camera worked close up... not too bad.  First two were taken outside my car, the third from the car looking out.

TV Cafe Before Sunrise

Snapped a couple of photos last night of our little cafe at work. There's a pool outside, and then the TV tower on the other side. First one I think turned out great. The second one picked up an outside light a bit too much, but I think the colors are still nice.

Out Bowling

So while out bowling with some co-workers last night, I bought my camera along to practice shooting with the flash in dark environments.  Most of the pictures came out alright.   Here are a few samples.

More HDR Fun-ness

So I decided to play with HDR photography a bit more.  This is my latest set.
First, the three base photos:

Then after merging and color correcting in photoshop, this is the final result.  What do you think?
I would lift it up... but I don't want to shock the ladies >=)

Playing with HDR

So today, I decided to play around with the HDR capabilities of my camera.  I set up this little egg thing I have in some christmas grass to see how it would turn out.  First up are the three images I used to merge to the HDR photo.  These are taken at a couple different settings to get the shadows and higlights.  I have a hard light hiting the back to help blur out the background more.

After merging the photos in photoshop, I did a tiny bit of color tweaking, but not much.  Here is the final product.  Looks pretty good if you ask me.

Where I work

Got bored at work and took some photos.  First up, the studio - its a lot bigger - need a wide angle lens to fit the whole thing.  I'll get some better shots on Friday.
Weather Nerd Central up close.
And here are a couple shots of the producer control booth.
