Good Efforts Gone Awry
As you probably can tell by now, I bring my camera with me to almost every Rockies game these days. I love being able to capture some special moments or just capturing the grandeur of Coors Field. I love this stadium and I love baseball.
For some reason this one game, my camera was set to something along the lines of +2.5EV, meaning that every shot was captured at 2.5 stops brighter than what the good exposure was. Yikes! And I didn’t realize this until about 30 frames into the game.
Back home at the Digital Darkroom, I’m uploading the images from the previous day’s events and remembered these 30 way-overexposed images and thought, “What can I do to salvage something from these shots?”
Solution — High-contrast black and white!
Here’s the results from a 12-shot panoramic attempt, all shot at +2.5EV.

A collection of fireworks images from last weekend’s show at the Colorado National Golf Club near my house in Erie. Katherine, Sofia and I sat at the back of the 1st Green and watched the 15 minute show with a few dozen others, while the main crowds sat up on the driving range. A this new spot proved to be a great spot both for viewing the fireworks and for a quick exit away from the traffic jams around the club house!

Fireworks with my Girls
Here, Sofia and Katherine enjoy the fireworks show last night at the Colorado National Golf Club (the old Vista Ridge) near our house in Erie. Great show and a good refresher course on how to shoot fireworks — camera set to manual mode, f/11, ISO 200 and between 4 secs and 6 secs shutter speed.
Great time. Click the image to view larger.
