SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY.....2/19/2012

Scavenger Hunt Sunday items: Love, Duplicated, Trend or Trending, Paper and Plastic

1.  Love - What can I say...my grandson getting some love from his Daddy.

2.  Duplicated - It may look like the horns on these bulls are duplicated, but actually the two bulls were standing with their heads aligned. I pulled this one from last summer's archives.

3.  Trend or Trending - I thought I would experiment with a trend in photography that I came across... High Dynamic Range photography (HDR). Basically it's the process of taking multiple exposures and merging them together into a single 32 bit image.  Here is a tutorial I found from the Photoshop Cafe.

The top photo is the merged photo which uses a larger range of tones that can show all the details in the shadows and highlights of all 3 images below it.
Another example:

4.  Paper - Happy Presidents' Day...I came across a box of very old newspaper pages and photos of Abraham Lincoln. (I thought the subject was appropriate for this week). The box belonged to my Mother who probably had collected them for some art project she was working on. The date on most of the papers was 1963...49 years ago. (I hear you, I don't know why I'm saving them either, since I'm not a saver).

5.  Plastic- A plastic fern in one of my favorite artificial arrangements.

sweet shot of LOVE. those PAPER pictures are pretty interesting. would make a great collage. I've never heard about the HDR photography (I guess I'm really behind the times) - perhaps this is something that is a trend I'll run across in a year or so when I retire??
