A weekend in Mt Carmel, Pennsylvania

Usually when I visit Mt Carmel, it's in the spring or winter when there are no leaves on the trees, but I finally got to visit at a time when there was some fall color on display.

Here are some of the photos...

Degrees of Bravery on US Route 220

I came across a nice stretch of foliage this weekend just outside of Bedford Pa. The problem was, it was a very high contrast area, so the only way to get a nice photo would be to bracket some shots & merge them. So, each finished photo is actually three photos, each taken at a different exposure, then merged together.
The other problem was, there was a festival going on in Bedford this weekend, so the highway was quite a bit busier than usual.

You can see my various degrees of bravery below....

The Covered Bridges of Bedford County

While I was out photographing the bridges of Bedford County this weekend I thought of a great idea for a movie script. It's about this photographer dude who is photographing covered bridges in a specific county & this lady who seems to like him. My current draft also has a lot of aliens, but they may get dropped from the final version.

Anyway, I was in Bedford over the weekend, so I decided to take a drive and photograph some of the bridges. Here are some of the shots...


Claycomb Covered Bridge


Cuppett's Covered Bridge


Turner's Covered Bridge

Herline Covered Bridge


Snook's Covered Bridge

Dr. Kniseley Covered Bridge


Ryot Covered Bridge

I also took different variations of each bridge, if you'd like to see all 32 photos, you can view them here - Bedford Covered Bridges.
Here's one other from Bedford County that I had photographed previously - Hewitt Covered bridge.

Photo shoot with Jordan - part I

Wow...it's October already...yikes, when did the summer end? I'm pretty slammed at the moment with various projects, but I thought I'd share a few pics from some recent shoots.

First, here are some from a recent fun portrait shoot with Jordan...









There will probably be a Part II to this post in the next week or so, since I'm still only about halfway through the pics from the shoot.
