So, tomorrow, along with 30+ other men I’ll be a MOM – aka, “Man on a Mission” – collectively known as “Men on a Misson.”  I’ve done this now for 3 or 4 years now and it’s a blast.  The creative side of me really gets jazzed about it – and tomorrow is absolutely no exception.  It’s an event that benefits the Highland Food Pantry so that’s all you need, right?  This year’s theme is tailgating and all I can say is if you’re a Steelers fan, you may want to come check out my display.  There’s no way you’ll miss it.  That’s all I’m saying.

The Last Supper

No.  Not that last supper.  I know that’s the end of this season.

I’m talking about the meals that we’ve been receiving for the last couple weeks since I came home from the hospital.  What an awesome outreach from my church.  We’ve enjoyed some really great meals compliments of the Guardian Angels at First Presbyterian Church.

Last night was the last one and we’re so thankful to all those who brought us a meal in this frigid weather.  Thank you.


Split Tone

Ever wonder what the split toning can do in Lightroom?  Scroll down to see the “before” image.

Silent Night

My Photography goal today was to capture a decent bracketed set of images of silent night at the 10pm service.  I had the 4pm and 7pm service to rehearse it.  At the moment of truth during the last verse my connection broke to my GoPro so this is as good as it gets this year.  Oh well.

Merry Christmas to all…

The real trick to creating a decent monochromatic image is to have a really contrasty image to start with.  I’m really digging what the new GoPro cameras can do.  The fact that I now have much more control over the exposure is what drew me to them.  I’m not even using it as an action camera as it was initially intended.  Now I have to figure out a way to attach this to my current aerial rig…
