February 11, 2009: Jogging at 175 Photos Per Hour; Part 1
I occasionally jog along the Clear Creek Trail in Silverdale, Washington. Although I am a poor jogger with knee and muscle problems, it has been my primary form of exercise for 35 years and I still enjoy each outing. Sometimes I take a small digital camera with me and grab some photographs along the way. This day was special, in that I took 295 photographs along my 4 1/2 mile route, stopping every time a potential photograph grabbed me.
These impressionistic photographs were not created by using filters or Adobe Photoshop tricks. They all look pretty much as they came from the camera, with just a few tweaks of contrast and brightness and color to make them look a bit better on the internet. They are experimental, and I intend to experiment with this technique in the future, since it gives such a transformative look to an everyday scene. I will discuss my technique here in the future, but for now you can just enjoy the view.
