  • The weekend we moved to the Houston area we went out to Brazos Bend State Park to check out the Perseids in the night sky. We set up on a short boardwalk to a large pond not too long before sunset. This time I bought my tripod because we were aiming for star and moon shots. We ended up not seeing but a tiny handful of meteors due to the very bright moon. I ended up converting most of my photos to black and white because I liked the feeling of them better. I even tried an HDR image, something I haven’t done before. I’ve mostly avoided it because I can’t stand poorly done HDR imagery, the fake-cartoony images that that it sometimes creates. Chris has done some great HDR and other photographers I know have too, even RJ has done HDR with portrait photography. I tried to work with the photos I did but couldn’t get anything that I liked that didn’t look too cartoony or too undone. I’ll try another time.

    Below are the three regular shots I liked best:

    evening

    moon

    I had a couple of moon shots with an alligator in the front but I just couldn’t get it to work for me. I may work on a few more and see what I can come up with, but I liked the very simplistic black and white night shots.

    What do you think?
