I’ve been experimenting with making panorama & larger composite images lately. I really like the look that I’ve been getting with taking multiple photos and stitching them together for larger files. The larger multiple photo composite images just seem to have a greater depth and detail to them (similar to what you could achieve with medium or large format film photography) than a standard single 35mm format size photo of the same scene. I will definitely be experimenting more with this in the near future.

There is a group of wild turkeys that have been hanging out at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL for a while now. The turkeys liked to stick to the more shaded areas of the park, which made getting pictures of them difficult. I ended up following the turkeys all over the place trying to get them in the best light to show off the colors & patterns of their feathers.
I have bit of a backlog of photos waiting to get edited & it took me a while to get these moon pictures posted. Anyway, on the night of the 2012 Supermoon in May I went out to a local forest preserve with a good view hoping that I would be in a good spot for moonrise. Unfortunately for me, the clouds rolled in and it was completely overcast for moonrise of the supermoon. Much, much later that evening the clouds finally cleared out and I was able to get some photos of the supermoon from my house.
The clouds opened briefly & let in some amazing light at sunset during a thunderstorm. This storm was pretty nasty & I wasn’t planning on taking any photos of it, but when the clouds parted & let in some golden light I ran out to my backyard & took some photos until the light died away. I just wish I would have been at a better location to get a landscape shot.
Well, I accidentally deleted a bunch of photos from my Flickr account today. I thought I was just deleting the pictures from being re-posted by Adobe Lightroom to Flickr, but as it turns out I deleted them completely from Flickr. Now I have to try & figure out which pictures got deleted and re-upload them to Flickr. What really sucks is that all of the comments, favorites & title names are now all gone from those photographs. This is going to be a LOT of work.
