Winner in New Media Category
I am pleased to announce that The Housewrighter has won the New Media category of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District Photo Contest. All of us here at The Housewrighter are excited to be selected because of our work with iPhone imaging. This shot, taken at The Russian Ridge Open Space Preserve was captured at sunset with the Pro HDR capture app, on my iPhone 5. Additional edits on Snapseed and refining using Lightroom. I am planning to build this image into a 24x36 on metallic paper, under 1/4" plexi. It would look very fine on your wall :-)
Stay tuned to The Housewrighter as we release our spring photo series this week. From sepia squares on the Pacific coast, to abstracts of coffee and sea-life, this has been a really exciting few months in photography.
Soon, we will announce a new resource for purchasing our images (framed, and in print).
Our prize for winning this category is a new handheld GPS (amazing for my terrible sense of direction while hiking) and cool little tripod.
In other news, our upcoming trips are on the books.
Denver/Boulder - July 23-28
Napa Aug 28 - Sep 1
Monterey/Big Sur Sept 9 - 12

Thanks for reading and enjoy the week.
