Three Lights, A Tripod, and Photoshop

To get this photograph I used my standard tools for real estate photography.  They are three electronic flash units, a tripod and Adobe Photoshop for post processing.

It amazes me how some folks selling their homes will allow the real estate agent to take pictures with a smart phone.   The camera on these phones are getting to be very good but when I can accomplish a picture like the one above, I’ll trade in my gear for one.

There a lot of magic going on in the shot above.  A light behind me is used to illuminate the foyer. There’s a light going off in the office on the left seen with French doors.  Another light was used in the recreation room, seen in far rear.  That same light was later  used to brighten up the hallway  on right leading to the master bedroom(before the duck.)

Add a little Photoshop, and viola!

sign

A promotional sign seen near the sales office, to attract more buyers to the community.  I must admit that I have  a lot of pride in our little community, most so than the country.  The community is a little over the top on patriotic fervor and displays but so far I’ve ignored it 🙂

I Never Saw Her …

I never saw her, until she crossed the finish line of a 5K Hogg Jogg race.  When the race began, Tyler Humpton maneuvered to the front of the pack and took the lead.  It was a surprise to see Bethany Killman cross the finish line first.  Maybe I should have paid more attention when I overheard her tell someone she came in second during a recent race.

When she crossed the finish line, I captured the image but those pictures are a dime a dozen.  So I like this one instead for the blog.

Parker Keeler crossed the finish line 3rd.

There were different categories in which to place, but I cared about the first three runners crossing the line.

It’s true, all the folks pushing  for abortion rights have been born.   This post isn’t about abortion but peoples use of their cars to say things.  Vanity plates, bumper sticker and other displays are used to shout out to other drivers what some feel.

Kelly Is Out Of Here

“It is time to turn in the brown uniform!! Kelly Woodward is finally retiring after over 40 years with UPS. His last day will be Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Kelly has been driving for over 35 years. 30 plus of those years have been
as the delivery driver for Bridgeville. He has been the driver in Heritage Shores since before the first home was built. Kelly counts many of you as his friends and will miss all of you” — copied from this month’s Heron

He’s a UPS driver I must see at least twice a day delivering packages in my neighborhood.  We’ve been here 11 years so far, and he was delivering here when the first house was built in our 55+ development.

Ask Siri …

Above are battery tools to replace a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 series battery.  One is a screwdriver and the other used to pry open the case.

My wife’s Samsung Galaxy  Tablet battery was holding less and less of a charge.   She needed a new battery and found a replacement on Amazon.com for less  than $28.00.   That’s really a  good deal especially when the in-house tech guy doesn’t charge to replace batteries.

A little Halloween fun for all.
