February 26 – March 4, 2013
Week 41 of the 365 Photo project saw more snow come to town just in time for the Iditarod. It also saw the opening the our presentation of the Broadway hit show Dreamgirls.
It was also the week I started shooting RAW format images.
I didn’t start the week with this in mind, it just ended up that way. More on this later.
The week begins with a backstage shot of a dressing rack for costumes on the production of Dreamgirls.
Wednesday I got a picture of our Christmas Cactus.
The next image is of the parking fairy artwork at the downtown Anchorage parking garage.
The first of March saw fresh snow, again. I decided to go for a walk to get some images so I wouldn’t be forced to get stuff from around the house. I got some fun shots.
There is nothing quite like fresh snow. The world is so quiet and white. There was almost no texture to the show, just a sheet of white as far as the eye could see. This is in the park behind our house. I love the little enclosure that shields the picnic benches. I’ve shot this from multiple angles now.
On Saturday, we went down to observe the finish of the Ceremonial Start of the Iditarod. I made an earlier post with some images. One of my favorite images was of the dogs when they were done.
We like to make good food on Sundays when we can. We tried a new recipe on this night, a quick cooking Coq au Vin.
Finally, I got this image of our Turtle Lamp to complete the week.
As I stated at the start this is the week I started working in the RAW format. For some reason, while shooting the Iditarod I switched over to experiment with RAW. And I like where it is taking me. Photoshop Elements has a serviceable RAW set of tools. I’m still learning, but the investment has been worth some great images. I like the flexibility with the photoshopping. In particular, being able to adjust the white balance is huge!
If you have feedback on the image processing, I would love to hear.
