These are the group shots I took of everyone at FUDCon in January. I posted these to my Fedora People space a while back but recently Ben Williams asked me to make a blog post so folks on Planet Fedora would get to see them as well. I’m happy to oblige.
Just one last question…:
Mike Stimpson has clearly put a great deal of thought into how some of the most famous photographs were shot. So much that he’s recreated them using LEGOs! He even included links to how he setup each shot which is a fun way to learn a little about lighting as well. Just plain fun!
I’ve been working on my photography quite a bit this year and feel like my images have progressed dramatically from what I’ve learned. I’m finding I enjoy doing portraits and have done a few shoots recently for friends and family. I hope you enjoy them.
They are an example of what can be achieved with only Open Source software. To achieve the same results using proprietary solutions would require spending well more than $1000 on software alone. Instead these and more are available in the standard Fedora repositories. All I had to do was click on “System -> Administration -> Add/Remove Software” and look through the “Graphics” packages. It couldn’t be any easier!
The red light from the setting sun over my right shoulder almost makes it look like the trees have already started changing colors. I shot this in RAW format using my old Canon Digital Rebel and then tonemapped it using the excellent qtpfsgui tool.
I just wanted to remind all the flickr users that took pictures at FUDCon last week that we started a flickr group durring FUDCon 9. It would be nice to keep that pool going so if you have some pictures you can add to the pool from any FUDCon past or pressent please do. Those of us that couldn’t make it this time would love to see what everyone was up to.
