A couple more for the “Cool Photo” Contest

These images are courtesy of Nick Rubalcaba of Rebecca Rubalcaba Photography in Visalia, California.


While waiting and hanging out with the boys in an
upstairs “game room” setting, one of the groom’s
nephews jumped on the drums and started banging away.
I definitely wanted to capture that and attempt some
motion blur. With flash on, I drug the shutter a
little and was able to get this picture. I brought the
photo into Lightroom and played with some various
settings, finishing it off with some “curves” adjustment in


The 2nd photo is of our bride and groom, from
upstairs, looking down into the lobby area. My wife
was doing the directing of the photos and I noticed
the railing in front of me. I wanted to frame them
with it and have them in the center “ring” area. I
think I was able to get the desired result. I really
didn’t like “feel” of it in color so I converted to
B&W (using Lightroom), with some final contrast/curves adjustment in


I love photography, my family, and owning my own business. I am going to mix them up and see what I get!
