Photo Of The Month


Portland Oregon Hawthorne Bridge
Portland Oregon Hawthorne Bridge - February 2016

This is the photo that I have chosen to represent March. This Photo was taken from the small balcony of my hotel room. I was staying at the Marriott Downtown Waterfront hotel. The hotel offers great views of the Willamette river and downtown Portland.

With this photo, I wanted to try doing some nighttime HDR photography. The image consists of 5 photo's that were bracketed by one stop. I then took the photo's into Adobe Lightroom, combined them using Lightroom's HDR wizard, and ended up with the photo you see now. I also thought this would be a great time to see how the photo would look printed on metal, so I ordered a 20"x30" metal print from Aspen Creek Photo. The photo is now hanging on the wall in the front entry and looks amazing!!!

This site has more to offer then just photo's. Over the years, I have gained a few tips and tricks from my trips and editing that I will be sharing. So be sure to take a look at the How To section to find out how you can better your photography, and learn how I create my HDR images, along with the steps that I take to prepare my photo's for printing.
