Trick or Treat?

It is a trick, but a treat to look at…

We had some fun this last week creating some spooky, haunted looking houses with Lightroom edits. We took some photos of regular looking houses in the avenues of Salt Lake City, and got a little creative in Lightroom. We also found some other things to photograph along the way this week that we did not edit…they were already spooky. Can you tell the difference?DSC_2455-01DSC_2468-01DSC_2503-01DSC_2521-01DSC_5784-02IMG_20171023_195820_280DSC_2541

The Challenge this week was to work on black and white photos, to improve our skills…well, I think Jeff really won this challenge hands down! He killed it! In every one of his photo! I need some more practice with staying on task (I over think my edits and feel they look better in color, even though I love everyone else’s black and whites!). It is a good thing this is a work in progress…

This next week…is going to be a surprise!

The adventure continues…

Let us know if you have an idea for a challenge or if there is something you would like us to explore….we would love to hear from you.

Lightroom Dashboard & the 50mm Challenge…

In our efforts to improve our photography, be inspired & motivated to expand our photography horizons. We stumbled upon LR Dashboard… www.lightroomdashboard.com
I learned that my lens of choice is 18-55mm, f-3.5-5.6: 50% of my photos are taken over the past 6 months have been with this lens. Jeff’s analysis turned up with the 18-250mm, f-5.6: 66% as his all time favorite. 
Having found out this useful information, we started discussing how it is so easy to get into a rut with our shooting. Jeff came up with a challenge to use a lens that we are NOT particularly fond of, and shoot with that lens for and entire week. We typically shoot several times a week or several times a day.  We decided that the 50mm is the winner for this challenge. Hopefully, we won’t throw our camera’s against a rock or toss them in the lake. Wish us the best of luck. 
We will run another analysis in 6 months and see if we are spreading our time evenly between our lens or if that is just the way we want to shoot. Or we might find another challenge hidden in the data.

**Try it out! We would love to hear your about your results. Also, if you would like to join us in this weeks challenge, we would love to see what you create with the 50mm lens. We would be honored to feature your photos here on twostrangersphotography.

Last week Jeff wrote about Perseid Meteor Shower. Unfortunately, it was a cloudy night, so Jeff was unable to shoot the Meteor Shower. However, he did get some pretty amazing shots! Take a look!
I was MIA for the meteor shower but here are a few photos that I took last week when Jeff and I went out on a photo-drive-about.
 
FYI: We are currently in the process of planning a 'InstaMeet'...
keep checking back with us for more info on the InstaMeet.

Thank you for visiting… we would love to hear your thoughts and comments.
