First off, I just want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes! I had a very nice, relaxing and scenic day. Which brings me to today’s post.

We got one of these goin’ on . . .

Where in the world is Kerri Bradford
GIVEAWAY!

Hubby and I took a little trip away for our birthdays. We’d almost planned a trip for New England in the fall, but then chose wisely and decided we needed to tuck that money away for Jordan to go on her mission. So we went some place within driving distance of our home in Utah (but may or may not be in Utah). You may have seen this photo on Facebook the other day:


That would be clue #1.

And here is clue #2.


And clue #3 actually is a little ooh+aah moment with the iPhone.

How many of you know about the HDR feature on your camera?
Have you ever played with it?

I have before, but I turned it off because…well…I don’t remember why.

But I decided to turn it on for this trip.
Lots of lights and shadows and risking losing one for the other–
either too washed out or too dark.

But look what happens when you turn on the HDR feature.

I did not edit either of those photos.
They are straight out of my iPhone.
I took just one picture and the phone created both
a normal one and an HDR one at the same time.

I was amazed at just how much color the HDR creates!

If you’re not familiar with HDR, it stands for High Dynamic Range. And basically, the camera takes a photo at 2 stops below, right in the center and 2 stops above, puts it all together and assesses the best photo possible, taking into account anything that may have normally been too dark or too washed out.

The result is amazing!

Give it a try. You might just be wowed by what you take!


So, now that you have three clues, here’s the contest for ya!

Leave a comment with your guess, like this post on Facebook,
