25 Oct 12. Let's start with a bit of correction concerning yesterday's image. What you are seeing is as follows: the first portion of water is Dabob Bay which co-mingles with Hood Canal, then that initial piece of land is Takutkso Point, part of the same Olympic Peninsula, then the land straight ahead is the Kitsap Penisula where we reside, and then Tacoma way in the distance which you can't really see. I was a bit confused last night when I was writing and it was brought to my attention by a question from my sister and a note from one of the members on the list who is employed by AAA.
With that grievous error cleared up, we look at the image for today. It is a creative shot made by employing a filter that allows for taking an image and placing it on top of itself as many times as you want, much like looking at yourself in two mirrors, one in front of you and the other behind. Probably something that most of the guys on the list have done many a time while sitting in the barber's chair. Unlike the two mirrors, this filter gives you ultimate control on how you create your image. In preparation for a talk I'll be giving this Saturday at a seminar in Abbotsford, B.C, I've been playing around with a number of different approaches to improving a photo (the topic of my presentation). While this one is going to make a radical alteration to the original, it is a fun filter to employ when you want to achieve something interesting as well as potentially comical, depending on your starting image. Some of you may recognize a form here that can be found in nature. Nikon D300s; 18 - 200; Aperture Priority; ISO 1250; 1/3 sec @ f / 5.6 hand held.
