I am developing my photography skills (I'd like to call it skill and not just luck) as I am working on this blog. It's meant to go along with my coverage of communities and events in the local newspaper.
I have previously used a Sony Cybershot circa 2006, and recently upgraded to a Canon Rebel.
I hope people can enjoy this blog as a chance to follow my activities and the activities of the communities I cover.
I post photos, some new, some old, some just for the fun of it.
I went to Logs to Frogs in Milton-Freewater this weekend and took about 300 pictures turing the quick carve. I ended up featuring one carver, so I couldn't use many of the photos I took of the other men.
In the quick carve they had to make something in an hour and fifteen minutes. For some that meant concentrating on a few objects they knew they could do well. For others it meant committing to one design and going with it.
When they first started it was all gung-ho.
I had a lot of fun with the fast-action mode on my camera, which caught all the flying sawdust. Here are two of the more spectacular shots.
