Last night, I went out storm chasing and got 102 shots. These are the best ones from the chase. I will post more later today after I’ve gone through and edited some more. I was trying to post this last night but my power went out. It’s back on so I can take care of editing more pictures and posting more awesomeness from last night.

I went swimming this afternoon and saw this magnificent set of clouds to my southeast. I checked the radar and they were down by the coast, which is a couple of hours away. I drove a few minutes to one of my favorite spots to get storm shots and got a few pictures. I thought the rice bins would be a nice addition to the picture.

I got this shot about two hours after sunrise. The clouds were pretty amazing so I got a couple of shots. Today was a short day of shooting for me. I only got two shots with my camera. This one and another one of the clouds. Tomorrow will hopefully be better since there is a nice chance of storms in the afternoon.

Update on my new page

HDR, Old Car, On the road

I have added some vehicles on my new Vehicles page. I have a 1931 Ratrod, a 1960 Pink Cadillac, a Roadster, and an old lowered Pickup truck. I changed the format of the page so you can see the pictures better.

I will be adding more vehicles later. I hope you enjoy what you see.

Thanks for the support y’all have given me. I really appreciate it.

I got an email this morning about using reflections in your pictures. One of the pictures in the post was an eye. I decided to try it and this is what I got. I used my macro lens to get this shot. I was able to get the reflection of the sky and our rose bush. This is one shot I need to work on.

Day 201 of my 365 Project

It’s been a while since I did a Self Shot Sunday so I decided to give a shot (see what I did there) today. I had this tutorial, How to Create a Pencil Sketch in Photoshop, in my email this morning so I gave it a try. I’ve made some changes to my physical features recently and I wanted to show them. Yes, I now have a mohawk and I shaved off my mustache. I’m going to get more ink in the future when I get extra money. When I get my new ink, I will show y’all what I got.

This afternoon late, I went for a drive to find my picture of the day. The last time I went out storm chasing, I saw a building that looked like an abandoned building. At night, it looked pretty impressive. It wasn’t impressive during the day. On the way, I saw this tree and got a few shots of it. I processed it in Photomatix, Lightroom and Photoshop.

This afternoon, I went scouting out an area to do a family session in a couple of weeks. This is at our public park in town, which houses a bunch of ducks. The ducks paid my wife and daughter a visit hoping to get some food. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any. Next time, we are planning on bringing some bread for them. I used one of the free actions I have in Photoshop to get this effect.

This afternoon, I went out to check out the weather. The radar looked a bit impressive when I headed out. As I got out there, the storms had dissipated a bit. I caught this panorama north of Crowley, Louisiana. The forecast is favorable for better chasing tomorrow and Saturday.

I decided to do sunset shots this evening. I didn’t regret my decision to do so. It was another incredible sky to witness. It was a blue sky until the afternoon/evening when some clouds showed up. The clouds made the sunset spectacular. I bracketed my shot so I could get all of the color out of it.
