Black As Knight

Exotic and rare sports cars capture the minds and imaginations of almost everyone. Having a chance to photograph an event that showcases some of these epic cars in their best light proved to be a total highlight of our year so far, and this post takes us along as we begin to view some of the cars on display at the Show ‘n Shine at the “Vette to Victoria” weekend hosted by the Victoria Corvette Club.

Please visit our blog “Black As Knight” to see all 6 new HDR images posted and to read the story behind them.

I recently returned from a family vacation to Niagara Falls, Ontario.  It was a large group, about fourteen of us, including our kids.  It was something we had wanted to do for sometime.  Our trip was planned from July 1 through July 4th which happened to coincide with Canada Day and our Independence Day.  We spent most of the first day familiarizing ourselves with the town and I spent most of the first two days taking family portraits.  I woke up early on our third day hoping I might get a chance at some HDR photography before the tourists and vacationers filled the streets.

 

This is a shot of Horseshoe Falls.   I couldn’t quite get a good vantage point for the tripod so I placed the camera on top of a chunk of rock that composed the railing.  Unfortunately a chunk of that rock is in the frame.

Three image HDR shot using a Nikon D40 and Nikkor 18-55 mm VR.  Images were combined and tone mapped in Photomatix Pro with minor adjustments in Adobe Lightroom 4.
