Favorites of mine…

These photographs of Jack on the golf course have become favorites of mine… not hard to see why, eh? This was hole #4 on the Kelly Nine at Bangor Municipal Golf Course, the last hole we played on Jack’s first time ever out on a course. Jack did an awesome job, and as you can see, he has pretty good form as a golfer. These were both shot with my iPhone camera using the HDR option, and then converted to black and white using Nik’s Silver Efex. HDR stands for high dynamic range, and when you choose that option, the camera basically takes a series of images, each with a different exposure from darkest to lightest. The HDR software automatically combines the best bits of the three overexposed, underexposed, and evenly exposed shots to create one photograph with shadows and highlights that are usually better balanced. This doesn’t work for every scene, and really not so well if you are shooting a moving subject, but in this case… I liked the effect.

      Thanks Bill. The HDR feature on the iPhone camera is pretty subtle, and in the right circumstances it can really make a difference to a photograph.

  1. Looks to me like you might have an Arnold Palmer in the making!!!I just heard on the radio of one fellow who stated to play tennis when he was 8, caught the bug and has continued to one of the best tennis players in the world, so who knows who you have in front of you??!!Great photos. Thanks. Mari

      Thanks Marialla. Not sure how serious he’ll get, but in the meantime, we’re just going to enjoy learning the game.

I'd love to hear from you...
