David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.



Time-Lapsed Video: Alaska Railroad and Spencer Glacier.

Images from two years ago today while on the Nikonians ANPAT 9 trip in Alaska. We took the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage to Spencer Glacier. The images were combined into a time-lapsed video (about 6.5 minutes in lenght). Some questions. Do viewers like this format, should I add music, or would a slide show with just the best 20 images be better?

    some of the photos were very distorted. I always believe that less is better, but in practice it is hard to accomplish.

      I let the computer convert the portrait images to landscape causing the distortion. I know have software that I could pan or zoom in on the images, and also soften the transition from image to image. Just takes time.
