Hello, I thought I would start describing the backstory on some of my images. The title for this series will be “About | name of image”…hope you enjoy!

The image I decided to kick off this series is one of my favourite Seattle Seahawk themed images titled “Spirit of 12”. It was taken on January 16, 2015 around 11:30 at night. I was heading down to Seattle every Friday night at the time to look after my mom and had decided head down there early and stay a little late before heading over to my parents house (she had a friend staying late that night) so that I might be able to capture some Seattle Seahawk (football team for those who don’t know) themed images.
I had actually spent a few hours attempting this shot, the timing had to be perfect as the Ferris Wheel would (obviously) move which would blur the football (limiting the time I was able to take the images). Of course, then there were the people. It amazed me how many people would just walk right in front of the camera (seriously, like 2 feet from the camera) which of course…destroyed the chances.
We have a framed 20×30 image in our house of this image and it looks just absolutely amazing. As I mentioned before, it certainly is my favourite “Seahawk” image I have captured.
Techie info: This is a 7 bracket HDR image shot using a Canon 5d Mark III with a Canon 17-40mm f/4L USM lens shot at 17mm. HDR processed with Photomatix Pro and finished in Photoshop.
