Duotone Notre Dame||Canon EOS 40D/12-24mm | 1/100 | f/16 | ISO 100 | Handheld
Just a quick post as I've had some more time to go over pictures from Paris this weekend. I like the way this one turned out with the reddish tint.

Candelabras and Arches || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 2.5" | f/11 | ISO 100 | Tripod
OK, so I felt a little rebellious after being told I could use my tripod. After we made the rounds of the cathedral, we sat down and I got my tripod out again. I figured I'd only be a security risk if I was standing with my tripod (it is awfully easy to pick it up and use it as a bludgeoning instrument). Apparently they thought so too.

Notre Dame Stained Glass || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 1/3 | f/11 | ISO 100 | Tripod
This is the image I managed to snap on my tripod before I was informed that tripods were a security hazard. It did prove very difficult to shoot, obviously impossible to capture the bright window with the cathedral walls. Either you get the glass and black everywhere else, or you get the cathedral walls and the glass is blown out.

I thought this one was hilarious and I would love to know the story behind it, but this particular king deserved a photo.

Olivia || Canon EOS 40D/EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM | 1/200 | f/2.8 | ISO 100 | Handheld
We interrupt the regularly scheduled Paris photos for Olivia. She has her 8th birthday coming up soon and so we went out for a little photo shoot yesterday to get some pictures for her baptism announcements. This one isn't going out with the announcement, but I wanted to show it off anyway ๐Ÿ™‚ We're very proud of her, she is growing up unbelievably fast. We shot this on a very bright sunny day, so we found some trees that provided ample shade, and used off camera flash for the lighting (580EX II and 550EX). Post processing in Adobe Lightroom.

Kings at Notre Dame || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 1/200 | f/8 | ISO 100 | Handheld
Ah Paris. Everywhere you looked there was something fascinating and Notre Dame was no exception. We spent a fair amount of time here and it was here that I was first introduced to the "No Tripod" rule. Inside the cathedral I thought the stained glass was beautiful, and I thought it would be an interesting challenge to photograph. Since I didn't want to get in the way of anyone, I went off to a less traveled corner and pulled out my tripod (taking care to not fully extend the legs so that I wasn't in anyone's way ). I managed to get a couple of shots before I was told to put it away by. Apparently tripods aren't allowed because of security reasons. Oh well. Anyway, this was outside (and no, I didn't use a tripod, although I'm sure I could have since it was outside). ๐Ÿ™‚

Paris Street || Canon EOS 40D/EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM | 1/250 | f/11 | ISO 400 | Handheld
Wow, OK I've been a little absent from posting over the last while. I like to think that it's because we have been adjusting to job changes, at least that's what I tell myself. This was from our hotel in Paris, leaning out the window. More to come sooner than the last one... I hope ๐Ÿ™‚

Lisa and I spent a week in Paris and had a fantastic time! Lisa was so very patient with me. We'll start off the Paris photos with a simple one of the tower and the fantastic clouds we had one day. This image available for purchase, for more information see the prints page.

Snow Against Red Rock || Canon EOS 40D/EF70-200mm f/4L USM +1.4x | 1/125s | f/5.6 | ISO 100 | Handheld
As part of our trip, we camped just outside of White Pocket for two nights, two very cold and windy nights. The second day, it snowed. For a while in the afternoon it had stopped, so I ventured out on the 1/4 mile hike to White Pocket to try and salvage the afternoon by getting a few shots. Not long after I got there, it started again, so I huddled under an overhang and tried to wait it out, this is one of the shots I got while cowering away from the elements. One of the most fascinating things about White Pocket was the sections of thin rock. I'd love to have had a geologist there to help explain how it all happened. It was difficult to capture this on camera, but some sections looked about as thick as cardboard.

Light Around the Corner || Canon EOS 40D/12-24mm | 1/2s | f/8 | ISO 100 | Tripod
I loved this scene in the canyon, the light was coming through much stronger around the bend, and the wall in the foreground was still in the shadows. It almost feels like if you turn it 90 degrees to the right, it could be an abstract sunset behind the mountain.
