3 Brothers before and After

3 Brothers before and After

Originally uploaded by Emanon Photography

So I had a family portrait shoot Wednesday actually had 2 family shoots, which is great, except that one was my family and I had to be in the photos (Ok, the other one was also my family, well, my little brother and his girlfriend and her son).  Out comes the Canon RC-1 remote and my RebelXT.  You can see the remote in my hand if you look real close.  I ran into a couple problems though.  The main problem was that I couldn't see the lens flare which the sensor did see.  I played around in photoshop for a while to clean up the image, which is a nice image, and one of the few pics out there of me and both my brothers together.  I still have a little bit of cleanup work before the final image is ready.  I was wondering if anyone had any tricks out there to clean up lens flare? (other then to watch where you aim the camera in the first place). I'll post a couple pics from the other shoot later this week once I think of something to write about them and once I have them edited.

I spent this past weekend traveling up to North Carolina for my grad school's homecoming and meeting for an Alumni committee I was asked to serve on.  While I was there I knew the trees were starting to change into their fall colors, and I would have some opportunities for some great pictures.  I was not disappointed.  My only wish is that I could have spent more time up there.  Because I was traveling around Boone, and the surrounding area with friends, I only used my Canon SD1000 point and shoot camera.  I had my 40D with me, but it ended up staying in my bag.  Make sure you take a look at the other pictures in my Flickr photostream to see some great shots of the Fall in the NC mountains.  This photo was my view looking South from Beacon Heights.

Photo of the Day: Fireworks before the launch

Fireworks before the launch

Originally uploaded by Emanon Photography

I got this shot last night while waiting for the STS-128 Discovery Launch, I thought we might get another weather scrub tonight, since I shot this lightning minutes before the launch. Incidentally, I had boosted my ISO up to 800 to get the lightning, and forgot to knock it back down to 100 for the shuttle launch, so the launch photo almost got blown out, chalk it up to a lesson learned.  It was a great night of natural and man-made fireworks.  I tweaked the color a little in Apperture 2 to make the lightning really pop, and I reduced the noise in Photoshop CS4.
