Last night, the highschool-style formal dance of my wife's medical school ,aka: "LEPROM", was a surprisingly fun, albeit long, night. Not without much personal protest we ended the night at some chump-filled dance club called Boardwalk. Not really my scene and now I have to dry clean my suit.
Overall I enjoyed watching my wife have a great time with all the awesome people she has gotten so close to since starting school 9ish months ago. It was nice to be part of the crew for a change instead of just hearing about all of her friends.
And the wife looked smokin' hot. (yeah, I know, the dreaded "pop up" flash shadow ruins this awesome portrait. My new flash will arrive this week)
I spent the majority of the day building this panoramic tripod head. It is a complicated technique but simple design. I won't go way into it but it just means my large scale landscapes should definitely improve.
Plus I found a new HDR program that looks promising for more realistic images. I haven't done any HDR lately beacause it seems like it's way overdone now and sticks out like a sore thumb. This program seems to do it the right way. Here's my first try with it. It's not a scene that necessarily needed HDR but I just randomly pulled over and shot it when I was on my way back from the Home Depot.
