Folklife reloaded

The festival went on. Today I spent a lot more time there.

You don't see a grown-up doing this every day.

Still angel.

Watching Greek dancing.

I love the first and second picture, both for different reasons. Is the second one overexposed or lighted or what? It looks great either way. The first one is great too, was this good seeing or just a great moment/coincidence? Good work so far Andrei. Keep up the strong work in Seattle.

Oh yea, got to love that sunset filter. Just kidding, you know burning and dodging are my best friends. Seriously though man, you're lucky you've got an AP gig, because I have a feeling I'll be shooting A LOT more baseball. Oh well, it gives me more opportunities to get some good sports action in my portfolio instead of non-traditional graphic sports shoots.

Fortunately, the first picture was all good seeing. Unfortunately, it was good seeing once I've downloaded the pictures. Lucky coincidence. All I wanted was a compact dark/contrasty background. I only saw the stuff in the bubble once I pulled them up on the screen.

The second one was overexposed. I underexposed as well to get the sky behind her, but I liked this one a little better.

No worries, I'll soon join you in shooting baseball.

ok, guys, I'm also shooting baseball (for the first time in my life) and, above all, lots of high school graduations. Fortunately, schools will be over soon and i'll be able to move on to other things.
By the way, I LOVE the overexposed angel...

Love the tiny bubble people! Keep it up!

Did you expose the angel in camera...because it looks like you dodged the hell out of the upper corner? JK.

Hahaha, yeah, right, it's all Photoshop. Just like your baseball guys at Hickman High. Now really, I did overexpose severely in camera and then all I did in Photoshop was burn it a little bit, to get that overexposed flare out.
