This is my very first attempt at light painting an object and I must say it was very…unsuccessful as far as light painting goes.  The light beam was too wide so the back wall was illuminated which was not good.

I decided to get creative with it and messed around in GIMP (Photoshop equivalent) and with some filters…

Fellow photographer, Julie Powell, gave me a tip on how to pinpoint that light, so hopefully my next attempt will yield better results.  Can’t wait to try again!

So, yeah, it’s been almost four months since I posted anything here, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been taking photos.  I’ve been shooting lots of photos.  Hundreds of photos!

Both of my daughters’ volleyball seasons started back in January and we have had tournaments every weekend since then except for one.  We absolutely love it!  Watching them play and cheering them on is always so exciting!

One of the tournaments was held at an old high school, and the lockers caught my eye.  I felt like I was back in the 1970’s or 80’s with the look and feel of the lockers and hallways of this school.

An up-close look reveals how old the lockers really are, showing the rusted hinges, layers of paint, dents, and chips.

We have one more month of tournaments left, so I am hoping to move onto other photographic subjects soon.  Until then…
