Playing with Photography

Hello out there kiddos.  I am sorry for such a long absence from my ole blog here.  It has been a rather exhausting few months here in Codyland.  I have been dealing with homestead issues and also the migration to a different mode of creativity.  I was recently diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and that made it official.  I have been experiencing severe pain and soreness in my left hand which puts a big damper on sculpting.  So, now that I have some meds to help I can do limited amounts of sculpting.  However, I have been busy trying to make a transition to a different medium or mediums.

So the abouve picture is an experiment with High Dynamic Range photography.  I just have scratched the surface of this particular form of photography.  But, I like the potential of it.  It exaggerates the colors and tonal range of an image.  This is typically achieved through taking several exposures of the same scene at varying exposure levels.  These are then combined in a software program to achieve a more intense or richer look. Needless to say, I am having a great deal of fun.  In addition to that, I am signed up for another photography class this fall.  So, in honor of that I have been posting a daily photo on my Facebook page.  It isn't official just a way for me to stay disciplined enough to keep my eyes open as a budding new photography artist.

Well, that's it for ow.  I will certainly try and post a little more often.  Don't give up on me please.  I am excited to share my creative journey with you all.
