June 2014 Photos


Black & White

Ron Bonczkowski - All Twisted Up

The picture was taken in Gunnison Black Canyon in Colorado April in 2011 when Doc and I spent 2 weeks out there.  I always liked B&W photograph, back in the old days when we worked long and hard in the darkroom.  Dennis showed the club how to use a little grey card just before we left on this trip and I used it almost ever day in Colorado.  I used a NIKON D 300 camera with a NIKON 105 zoom lens, this shot was ASA 200 F8 cloudy day, I only shot JPEG back then because I always make a travel show of my pictures and needed all the room on my card.  Today I shoot raw plus jpeg.
On the computer I use levels , contrast , curves and sharping on most B&W with a little Nik grey scale adjustment.

Doc and I would gladly go back anytime to guide anyone to these great photo places in Colorado.  Maybe the club would like to go.  We aren't getting younger each year so go soon.  Thanks to the members who liked it.

We're going to give Curtis Drake a little more time to explain his photograph.  He's had some computer problems and can't provide the information at this time.

Tom McCall - Highlighted

The photo was taken along a small stretch of beach South of the St Joseph Water Filtration Plant on Lions
Park Drive, November 2, 2007, 6:13pm.  Sunset was at 6:40pm and the setting sun was highlighting the
spray from the waves as they hit the rocks.

Post processing was in Photoshop CS6 and onOne Perfect Effects 8 with a little added saturation and sharpening.
