2013 Penguin Plunge – Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

The Penguin Plunge is held every year on City Island in Harrisburg, PA by the Harrisburg Area Humane Society. It’s a fun way to start the new year as it is always held on January 1st at noon. The one reason I always enjoy photographing this event is because it’s the perfect time to capture non-posed expressions. This year the Susquehanna was a nice, cool 34 degrees.

More photos can be found over on my 2013 Penguin Plunge Flickr photo set.

Harrisburg Winter at Night

Just had the urge to open my window and take a shot of the tree across the street covered in snow. Set my Nikon D70 on the tripod, put the camera in manual and set it to bulb mode. Took a few shots at f/11 and experimented with the shutter speed. Lens correction and white balance adjustment in Adobe Lightroom, then into Photoshop for some HDR tweaking.
