a portrait

Scouting for locations to take wedding pictures (not long now). We found a few good locations in Phoenix Park. This was one of them. It’s just a test shot; so I left it untouched and didn’t wait until the bridge was clear before getting the shot.

Thursday Nights @ Phoenix Park

I was in attendance for one Justin Jay Arnold at 6 p.m. this last Thursday. A free outdoor concert and I finished work at 5:30 p.m. – seemed like a perfect fit. Adelyn Rose and then Michael Perry & the Long Beds followed.

As long as I’m mentioning an artist I like I suppose a few links are in order. For the events at Phoenix Park, check out VolumeOne. For the recordings of Justin Jay Arnold, checkout his Myspace page and give a listen. Right now it looks like he has received 2654 page views since 8/5/2009 and his top listened-to song, “Just Be” has 82 plays.

I think he’s got some solid talent and wish him the best of luck and look forward to some new tunes down the road.

Historic Highlights of Chippewa Falls

Two photos today. The first is a panorama taken in a small little park between buildings. This is one part of the two wall mural.

A vintage advertisement. I’m unsure of the reason it has been repainted but I suspect, like the other advertisements, this was an event that was once held in Chippewa Falls and could very well be an exact replica at the exact site of the original.

Madison in HDR

Today’s photo was made using HDR (high dynamic range) processing in combination with photo-stitch software. In order to create this composite image I took three images in rapid succession at three different exposures. Then I combined the images using Bracketeer – this converted 12 photos into just 4. Then I took the 4 HDR images and combined them in DoubleTake. A few touch ups in Aperture and I arrived at this single photo:
