Instead of Weekending, I'm going back to Thursday night when Smith and I took a little road trip to Logan, a town about an hour and a half from SLC. The drive isn't very picturesque until the last 20 minute, when the canyon is filled with farmland nestled into little dales.
The reason we took the trip was to meet up with a friend who lives in Grand Junction, who had driven her 50 year old car to a vintage car rally in Logan. She's 10 years older than me and drives a 1964 Corvair, no air conditioning, no power breaks or steering, and no "juice", miles and miles just for the fun of it. She's an inspiration. May I introduce Jean.
She's the first person I ever met on the internet and we've been friends since 1998. It was 10 years ago I drove to visit her and blogged about it here. The next year I drove to Grand Junction again and, once again, shared the trip in a blog post. Th
This time she came to Utah and Smith and I had a chance to meet her son (who drives his own 1963 Corvair) and his family. We all went to dinner and chatted for hours. You might notice she has a wounded hand, but it doesn't stop her from doing the one of the things she loves, driving her vintage car. Like I said, she's an inspiration and I was very happy to see Jean again.
As Smith and I drove home I took a picture of the sunset, but as you can see, I didn't capture much of the color in the sky. The subject of the first Big Picture photography lesson was light and I knew the sunset would give me a place to start.
Given the tips on apps, and learning a few tweaks of the subject, I was able to create a more dramatic photograph. I'm playing around and trying a few other tricks to enhance my photos.
The class has given me a little more understanding of what apps might work to create more interesting pictures than what I'd get on my own. The Big Picture Photography Project is going to be a blast.
