I spent the last few weeks shooting photos for the Twinsburg Youth & Community Theatre Production of “At the Corner of Broadway and Twinsburg“.   

The Performance Photos were difficult to take.  The lighting levels were changing constantly.  The light color was changing with every scene and often during a scene the colors of the light would change.  It took some manipulation with Adobe Photoshop in post processing to get the colors to look right by adjusting the White Balance.

We were also able to take a full cast photo before one of the performances.  there were about 170 people in the production.    Fortunately the Twinsburg High School Auditorium has a balcony and I was able to get the cast placed on the stage and then take the photo from the balcony.  The higher perspective allowed me be able to see all the faces.  The photo was placed into a border with a description as shown below for 8×10 or 16×20 printing.

You can view all the photos in this GALLERY on my website.

Enjoy!

365 Project - 2015 Edition http://www.tjpowellphotography.com/blog/2016/1/365-project---2015-edition

On New Years Eve I completed my 365 Project for 2015. I started this on January 1st and I have taken at least one photo per day. This image is a college of the entire year. All of the photos were taken with the iPhone and I used the CollectPhotoApp ( http://collectphotoapp.com/ ) to keep track of my progress and make the calendars you see in the image here.

Through out the year I have also posted my progress on Facebook and Instagram. You can also see all of the photos I took in Hi-Res on my Photography Website at http://www.tjpowellphotography.com/2015-365 It has been enjoyable and I intend on keeping this going into 2014!

Happy New Year!

Blue Hen Falls at 11mm http://www.tjpowellphotography.com/blog/2015/12/blue-hen-falls-at-11mm I took this photo of Blue Hen Falls on 22 Nov 2015.  This was shot using the Canon 11-24mm f/4L US Ultra Wide Lens mounted on a Canon 5D Mark II Camera Body.   I was evaluating this lens and I absolutely loved it.  Unfortunately I no longer have it, I really wanted to keep it and not return it.  

This was shot at 11mm which is the widest setting.  This is a rectilinear lens and not a fisheye, so you are not going to see curvature of the image around the edges.

I was up under the overhang.  The angle and how wide this shot is looks fantastic.

I processed this photo with the new Macphun Aurora HDR Software.  I have found this to be the best HDR software I have used to date.  Very easy to use and easy to generate images that do not look like HDR and have the dynamic range that you are looking for.  

Enjoy!

Tinkers Creek Nature Preserve http://www.tjpowellphotography.com/blog/2015/10/tinkers-creek-nature-preserve On Columbus Day I visited Tinkers Creek Nature Preserve.  I like to visit this area when the Fall Colors are present.  You are able to see great color and lots of reflections on the water of the ponds.  I have a couple of my favorite shots from this trip at the bottom of this post.  And you can visit all of the photos I have taken there in this Gallery.    The Nature Preserve is located in Aurora, Ohio.

The colors of the leaves this year seem to be a little dull and muted, they may not be at peak yet, I will watch and see if they get more vibrant and make another trip if it looks better.

This Nature Preserve is owned by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and recently the Summit County Metro Parks has taken over Management of the Nature Preserve.

Enjoy!
