|Hammond Trail Bridge on the Mad River, July, 1012|
I doubt that this image would win in any juried shows, but I do think it gives a good idea of the structure. I combined nine images to create this one. All were taken with the Canon 17mm Tilt-Shift lens. I kept the camera in one spot, and moved the lens in its holder to get the different parts of the image. I took three exposures of each of the three "shifted" parts of the image. What that means is that I took -2, 0, and +2 exposures of the three different parts. At home, I took each group of three, and processed them as "HDR" images. I later combined or stitched the three HDR processed images into a vertical panorama in Photoshop. I took that output and processed it in Lightroom.
I hope that makes some sense. It sounds like a lot of steps, but I think it pays off. I did something similar several months ago with the image of the Eureka Inn April 17, 2012.

|Mad River Toll House, July, 2012|
I suppose that I should not complain. Half of the county is in drought conditions, crops are failing, and people are dying in the heat. Just a few days ago we had over an inch of rain on Fickle Hill. Our lawns are still green, yet we did not water them.
I am attempting to find the silver lining (maybe I can Photoshop it in) to all this, but the gray is getting to me. Perhaps I need a road trip.
The house in the photo above is the same house I photographed about twenty years ago in B&W with my old Mamiya 645. I still have a print of that photo somewhere. In that composition there was a picket fence and a nice deciduous tree in the front yard.

|BUCK MOUNTAIN SCHOOL, JULY 2012|
I am working more and more with this method of expanding the dynamic range of my images. I am quite excited about applying these techniques to some images from the forest that I have studied for years.

|THE EUREKA CO-OP, JULY 2012|
This is a composite of three images processed in Photoshop as HDR. I then worked the merged image in Lightroom.

|THE SLIM PRINCESS, LAWS, CA 2008|
I have works at several locations for Arts Alive tomorrow evening. I have half a dozen photographs downstairs in the Morris Graves, two works at the RAA Gallery, and a couple of pieces at the Hagopian Gallery inside the main Library.
Hopefully I will see some of you tomorrow evening.
