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.


One-Year Ago Today — Pacific Ocean

Now for something completely different. I wanted to do a time-lapsed video of the sunset. However, while on a ship — even a big ship there is lots of motion due to the motion of the ships travel, waves, and wind. My camera is not able to correct for all of that motion. The time-lapsed video on the left the image is bouncing all over the place. I then processed the video using the Warping Filter in Adobe After Effects for the time-lapsed video on the right. Although not perfect, it does a pretty good job stabilizing the image.

Sun Setting from the deck of the MV World Odyssey while crossing the Pacific Ocean. Semester at Sea, Spring 2016 Voyage — Day 3. Images taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 35 mm f/1.4 lens (ISO 800, 35 mm, f/16, 1/260 sec) at 3 second intervals. Raw images processed with Capture One Pro. The time-lapsed video was created using Photoshop CC. Stabilization of the time-lapsed sequence was performed with the Warp Filter in Adobe After Effects.
