Sunday Funday – Super Bowl and Bowling!

We went to back-to-back parties today. One was a birthday party and the other was a Super Bowl party.

I took along the camera and got a few pictures that I liked from each party.

You’ll notice that some of them are a bit grainy. I was experimenting with higher ISO to account for low light and movement. I also experimented a bit with the tracking software in the Sony a6000, which was pretty cool to see in action.

Wichita Theatre in HDR

I’ve been wanting to try exposure bracketing for HDR ever since I got my new Sony a6000 this past weekend. After finding the tripod and figuring out how to remote trigger my camera via my iPhone, I went out tonight to try my luck at an HDR image of the Wichita Theatre in downtown Wichita Falls.

I’m pretty happy with how the picture turned out considering it was my first time to do HDR. I set the brackets to take 3 frames with 2 stops on either side and then combined the images in Lightroom when I got home.

The biggest personal critique I have of this image is that the street light starbursts seem overpowering. Perhaps I should have framed those out?

Do you have any critiques that you’d like to share? 🙂
