South Side Bethlehem - Lehigh University & The Funhouse

My Buddy Doug and I took a walk around south side Bethlehem, PA today and shot some HDR of Lehigh University's campus and The Funhouse. Check it out!

I will post the rest very soon!

If you're curious about the technique:
I'm shooting with a Canon 50D digital SLR camera. The technique is called HDR (High Dynamic Range) and involves combining multiple exposures to see more of the detail in the photograph. To learn more about it, go to www.stuckincustoms.com. Trey Ratcliff is an amazing HDR photographer and has detailed tutorials and explanations on his website. ENJOY!

Hello! It's been a while!

Hello Everyone. It's been a while since I last posted.. been busy with a job switch and some other things. 

BUT I'M BACK!!!!... with a rented lens. I wanted to try something wider. 

This is the tiny little street behind my apartment. I always walk past this building and admire the way it looks like a creepy prison-dungeon-underground lair...

I will post soon! Promise!

Great Local Blogger!

I once met a girl getting coffee
She quickly walked up and stopped me
She opened her mouth
And the words that came out
Were, "Check out http://savethekales.wordpress.com "

Last Two in Princeton

Here are the last couple photos from Princeton University. 
One is a repeat from the other side of the cathedral-like building, the second is of some of the dorms.. Definitely spectacular architecture.

ALSO! I'm always looking for new places to take some photographs. 
Let me know if there is somewhere you recommend (near the East Coast) and I will do my best to get out there! Thanks!

25 Minutes in Princeton, NJ

I was on my way to a gig in Redbank, NJ and had an extra 20 minutes... so I stopped in Princeton, NJ! I walked around the Princeton University Campus, but unfortunately didn't have to time to take many photographs. I will post the few I took over the next couple of days... ENJOY!

High Dynamic Range is Back Again

Hello Everybody! Here are a few more HDR Photographs from Doylestown, PA. 
A couple were handheld (and my hand is not very steady), but they came out alright.. just a little "shaky" looking. 
They're still pretty neat. Enjoy!
