Lightroom 4

Posted on by Jeremy in Photography | Leave a comment

Lightroom 4 is out and although I upgraded the week it came out, I haven’t had a lot of time to play around with it’s new features. The adjustments in the Develop module have been completely revamped. This allows you to pull out detail in the highlights and shadows like never before. I went back through my library and found the above picture and played around. The resulting photo was adjusted solely in Lightroom, no PhotoShop, no HDR, etc. I haven’t even began to start playing with the adjustment brushes which will allow you to selectively adjust areas of the photograph.

Oklahoma City National Memorial

I was downtown the other night and had my camera, so I stopped at the Oklahoma City National Memorial for a moment to try and capture some of the gravity of the site. These were just walk around shots, but I definitely want to return later with a tripod, wide-angle lens and a bit more planning.

 

Myriad Botanical Gardens Photo Shoot

Posted on by Jeremy in Design, Photography | Leave a comment

I had an opportunity to do a Myriad Botanical Gardens photo shoot in order to grab some images for a brochure I was designing. They are finishing up a $36 million renovation of the Crystal Bridge Conservatory and the surrounding outside grounds of the gardens. After shooting the pictures within the Crystal Bridge, I was able to take a tour of the outside grounds with Jennifer McClintock, Marketing Director for the Oklahoma City Parks & Recreation Department. Hopefully, I will be able to return a little later this year and shoot the outside portions. The renovation has made the MBG a tremendous destination for downtown Oklahoma City, right next to the new Devon Tower. As soon as you get the chance, be sure to visit the new Myriad Botanical Gardens.

 

Highway 81 Photography

Posted on by Jeremy in Design, Photography | Leave a comment

 

I was digging through my Lightroom library and came across an old series of shots from 2007. The photography is from various locations along Highway 81 between Oklahoma City and Enid, Oklahoma. I shot them with my first DSLR camera, a Canon Digital Rebel XT. Considering I shot them in JPEG format instead of RAW, I was really surprised how good they came out with an overprocessed look. The grain elevator received the most retouching work; 3 trucks, a telephone pole, a large trash bin and about 7 electrical lines had to be removed.

When I first saw these shots, I was disappointed, but revisiting them several years later has given me a new outlook on them. In this day and age, almost any photo can be salvaged and it really shows that you’re only limited by your creative vision.
