My fascination with HDR photography has garnered me a spot downtown at the Chamber of Commerce building for the summer. The exhibit, which will feature only HDR photos, is scheduled to open in early June. Along with the photos, there will be a brief explanation of what HDR photography is and how it is accomplished.

The Cynthiana Chamber of Commerce is located at the corner of Main and Pike streets in Cynthiana, KY. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by and see the photos in person. Central Kentucky is beautiful this time of year.

Keep shooting 🙂

Kentucky has some of the most beautiful churches in the US. This is an example of one of my signature “drive-by shootings”.  As a passenger in a vehicle, I have the freedom to take pictures as we go down the road. The important thing to remember is to set your camera on TV setting, which is shutter priority. With this setting, you can basically lock your camera into the shutter speed needed to get a sharp picture while moving. In this case, I set the TV on 1/400, which captures images pretty well at around 55 m.p.h. In TV mode, the F-stop is going to adjust automatically according to the amount of light available.

Try this friendly method of drive-by shooting. You may have to do some experimenting, but once you’ve mastered this method, you will find it less time-consuming than pulling over the getting out at every photo-op.





I haven’t fallen off the earth. I have been very busy. I have had time to take some pictures, including some HDR shots. These highlight the purple weeds that grow here. They are quite ugly up close, but in a field, they are beautiful.

Happy spring:)
