Rio Grande Train Station Dump

We had our second trip and we went to this retired train station in downtown Salt Lake. I didn't find the place very interesting for shooting, but came away with a few decent shots. This week in class we had been focusing on achieving the shot you want in camera, without using photoshop, by manipulating the exposure, contrast, saturation, white balance, and the like. So all the pictures you see were not photoshopped except for the very last one where I added some saturation after the fact. If you click on the slideshow it will take you to the picassa album where the captions have the details of the shot (shutter speed, aperture, etc.) For example, some of the shots of the stairs were 20 second exposures. Again, feedback is welcome. And I'm waiting to see the results from Jason's field trip.

I can see the increasing skill in these shots. You get my most improved photographer for the week, and next week, probably the week after that too. I just know that already.

These pictures at the train station are amazing, Trevor! I hadn't looked at your photo website in a long time, but did so this morning, and loved those posts. Can we hire you to be our permanent family photographer?

Unbelievable. It's hard for me to believe that you and I are related. "Life Through the Lens" is quickly becoming one of my "daily check" blogs.
