Vertigo

16 12 2008

This weekend Lizzy was away in the Field but I got to spend one day at the Riverside Quarry before getting a bad cold. I drove up with Leah who sent her project, Vertigo 13a. We also met up with a fun crew from the LA area. All photos have been post processed and I am interested in opinions of how they look! Based on my terrible originals I have a lot to learn. I just got a bigger memory card and going to start shooting in raw to make post production easier.

Lizzy has a similar opinion about the blur. I wanted to add focus on the climber but overdid it a little. Thanks for the comments!

I like ’em. Can’t wait to see more SoCal climbing shots. You don’t really hear much about these lesser known areas so it is cool to get a visual.

[…] mind. During my two years here I have met the climber, Leah, who you have perhaps seen photos of in earlier blogs, the photographer, her husband, and the route developer Louie Andersen.  All of these things […]
