On Monday, I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful model home in Creighton Farms for Pamela Jones of Extraordinary Transitions and Long & Foster. The exterior shot could have benefited from a little cloud cover so there wasn’t a big shadow across the front, but it still looks pretty darn awesome. I loved the detail and craftsmanship in this home. So, I used HDR to showcase some of that detail. For just $2,350,000, this home could be yours!

For our first family vacation, we stayed at the Villa Roma Resort near Calicoon, New York in the Catskills. It was pretty much in the middle of nowhere. There were some small towns nearby which were sort of interesting. I couldn’t imagine living in a small town at all. We had pizza from one of the small town restaurants which was pretty good. We also walked around and explored. It rained a lot the first few days we were there and since we were near some major waterways there was a bit of flooding in the area. We were disappointed to drive out to this place called Sonoma Falls Farm only to find that it was closed indefinitely.
We visited two parks both with unique bridges. The first was Stone Arch Bridge Historical Park which featured a 3-arch stone bridge which was built in 1880. There was grass growing on top of it. The river that ran beneath the bridge was overflowing its banks from all the rain. I did get some nice HDR photos of the bridge.
The second park was Livingston Manor Covered Bridge Park. I’ve never seen a covered bridge in person. Apparently, the founder of the YMCA lived in the house next to the bridge. So, that was sort of interesting. Alex enjoyed running around in the grass that was there and playing with the rocks.
We also spent some time swimming at the indoor pool, playing at the playground, enjoying the game/play room, and eating at the dining hall at the resort. I tried Cornish hen for the first time which was pretty tasty. Unfortunately, the outdoor pool and water park at the resort wasn’t open yet for the season, which we didn’t know when we planned the trip, but it was too cold to be swimming outside anyhow.

On Saturday, I had the opportunity to join some friends to photograph the Franciscan Monastery in Washington DC. I used a technique called HDR (High Dynamic Range). Basically, I took multiple shots of the same scene at different exposures in order to capture both the bright highlights and the dark shadows and then I combined the images using software which results in one highly detailed image. Below are some of my favorite images from the shoot.
