face painting
Posted: July 18
 
At the music events I attend and Raptor Fest, there are artists who will paint the faces of kids in attendance. Based on various comments folks have made about my blog posts this summer, it seems that the photos of kids with their faces painted are pretty popular.

Fourth of july fireworks
Posted: July 04
 
We attended the Driggs Fourth of July Fireworks display this evening. As usual, it was quite good but with a bit of a twist on the grand finale. Most of the finale was lower to the ground than usual. Not a lot of the "kabooms" I like so well.

I thought I would give it a go and attempt some photos this year.

teton valley
Posted: July 01
 
My good friend Rodney Henry was going for a ride in his dune buggy in Teton Valley north of Tetonia and offered to take me along. We covered many roads that I had never been on before. Some of them could be driven in a passenger car but some of them, NO WAY.

Tonight was the second Music on Main of this summer. The musical group, Hot Buttered Rum, was a bluegrass group and was quite good. It was pretty cold so I did not stay for the whole concert.

Pictured at left is McKenzie Reed back from her first year of college at Lawrence University posing for the camera.

music on main

Tonight was the first Music on Main of this summer. The musical group, Dirty Revival, was a bit to "hip-hop" for my tastes.

hay bale photo black & white interpretations
Posted: june 12
 
Rainy day today so not much I can do outside.

Everyone seemed to enjoy the photo I took of the hay bales on June 9. So I decided to try some B&W interpretations of it using Topaz B&W and Nik Silver Efex.

along highway 32

I enjoyed the photo session on Highway 33 so I decided to try Highway 32 today. This is the scenic road we drive when we go to Yellowstone for the day.

The clouds were once again very nice today.

I had taken a drive up Highway 33 yesterday with my good friend Rodney Henry to do some shopping in Rexburg ID. On that drive, I spotted some compositions I wanted to work on. Today had some great clouds so I drove Highway 33 in hopes of catching some nice photos.

My visitors, Steve & Kathy Odenwald and Steve's aunt Josie visited Yellowstone National Park. This was Josie's first visit to the Park and the word "amazing" was uttered by her the whole 15 hour day.

drive out
Posted: june 6
 
Steve Odenwald and I once again drove out to Driggs together.

We decided to take 2-1/2 days for the drive instead of the usual 1-1/2 days in case I experienced any problems with my hip replacement. No problems with the hip and we decided that this was a much better approach to the trip.

The extra day was used to explore the Snowy Range west of Laramie Wyoming. My previous visit to that area was in the Fall. This time I wanted to photograph it with snow in the mountains. As you can see below, there was quite a bit of snow.

how to photograph a solar eclipse
Posted: April 15
 
On August 21 of this year, we will experience a total solar eclipse. Driggs Idaho is on the prime path of this celestial event and I have some friends who will be visiting during that time to view the event.

I ran across this informative article that covers the topic of photographing this event.

Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis
Posted: February 2
 
Today I decided I would go to the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis on Lindell Blvd. I am not really sure if I have ever been inside this building before but I am positive I have never taken photos there.

I took my Canon 5D IV camera and two lenses... the 135 f/2 and the 24-70 f/2.8. After taking one or two shots with the 135, I quickly switched to the 24-70 to capture a wider field of view. I shot at ISO 12,800 to get a faster shutter speed. I took most of the shots on my tripod.
