After shooting for several hours, we came back and set up for a local camera club meeting that Mel was hosting. We were expecting around 20 people and only 6 or 7 showed up, but it was fun nonetheless. Melvin taught basic camera skills and settings, and another guy talked about panoramas in Photoshop. I then did a brief overview of Lightroom followed by some more in-depth coverage of layers and blending modes in Photoshop. It went pretty well. I think I like teaching people.
I will put some pictures up tomorrow, but for now I just wanted to write down what we did. I might start to do a bit more writing here on the blog, mostly for my own sake, so don't feel bad if you never read any of it. I think that writing is a good thing to do. It clears the mind, and is just fun sometimes. Plus I am going to print out my blog every year or something so I will have a journal of my year in photography. So why not include some text here and there?...

Once again I was going through older photos and thought I would post some stuff I shot last semester, as I'm trying to get things thing to the point where it is a daily photo log of my work, which will hopefully get me shooting more and improving more. So anyways, here are some shots of some motorbikes and scooters that were parked outside the Tanner Building a while back.
edit: weird... there is a random black line that seems to appear around the last photo of most posts... hmm... will have the look at the template code... sigh... I don't know html well...

Thanks to Kinsey I got some shots of me, shooting! I didn't get out and shoot anything today, so I thought I'd at least put some pictures I was working on up. Been feeling a bit under the weather, and didn't do much today.
I want to try some lightpainting, and also, try to make my own tilt/shift lens... We'll see how I do on those two things. I am also intrigued by camera tossing and thing I will go out and try it right now.. Why not?...

Well, I am trying out a new look for my blog, and I think I like it. Sometimes the background doesn't seem to load right but I'll get it all sorted out. Also, yesterday was my record day for visitors to the blog. 20 PEOPLE!!! IN THE SAME DAY!!! AMAZING! lol.
I just got a plugin for Lightroom 2 that can add borders or anything on its way to exporting to Flickr or Facebook or just to a file and thought I would try it out. I think with the new blog colours that I really need to put borders on the pictures... http://timothyarmes.com/lr2mogrify.php is the link to the Export Plugin (actually its called a post-export plugin)
edit: Man, that yellow colour looks sick.. I won't do that again I don't think. I was just trying to match the picture...

The Cougarettes did some amazing dances. They really are amazing and I feel bad that they get a bad rap from sports events. They really aren't cheerleaders.
