The Project is Complete!


Woo Hoo! My Photo of the Day project is finally complete! This is the last picture I have to post, but I will continue to share new images when I make them. I still have my Same Tree, Different Day project, so that will continue to keep me busy.

This is proof that you can accomplish a huge task, one small step at a time. I set out to catalog all of the image folders on my computer on March 9, 2014 by tackling one each day. In that time I missed a total of 16 days for various reasons and finished strong with a streak of reaching my goal 175 days in a row. I posted a total of 395 pictures.

In the winter months Our Gang Ice Racing holds weekend ice races on frozen Georgetown Lake in Georgetown, CO. I went with a few members of my photography group to get some photos on a cold and windy day. This is a picture of a student getting a lesson on how to drive on ice.

I made basic adjustments and removed chromatic aberrations in Adobe Camera Raw. In Photoshop I added a curves adjustment layer.



This is Kayleen, modeling for one of my portrait classes.
I made basic adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw. In Photoshop I used the Spot Healing Brush to remove blemishes. I added black & white and curves adjustment layers.

Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth


This was taken in Denver during the 2013 holiday season. We scheduled this as an outing with my photography group, and a wet, heavy snow started to fall as soon as we started shooting. We didn’t get a lot of photos, but we did get to warm up with some good food at a great restaurant.

I made basic adjustments, removed chromatic aberrations and reduced the lightness of the reds in Adobe Camera Raw.
