Discovery

Discovery

I admit that I am a lazy git when it comes to processing images.  If I didn’t feel somehow less of a photographer if I shot in jpeg I think I would process faster but then again, I would still end up tweaking and be in the same boat with thousands of unprocessed images.  One of these days someone will pay me to do this full-time and I can sit at home and process, then again, I have been paid…

Suburban Morning

Suburban Morning

I walk out to this building every morning for the past 10 or 11 years.  I have shot it many times just as a quick camera test for settings but this morning it looked good with the sun coming in off the glass in the front and then the shadows on the side.  It’s a typical suburban morning.  Doing some editing in Lightroom and then Nik Tools, and finally ending up in Photoshop for the final bits.  For all the…

Big Bad Voodoo Moon

Simplicity

I’ll be honest and say I didn’t like this picture at first.  I found it too bland but then I went and started to work on it and magic happened.  I will admit to touching it up a bit and mainly using the heal tool to get rid of some discoloration.  The rest is the flower on its own with a bit nudging to various sliders in Lightroom to make it pop.

Macro Madness

Macro Madness

I did mention I own the very cool Olympus 60mm Macro.  While I have been jumping around photography wise since I’m sitting on something of the order of about 3000 unprocessed images I figure I switch back to some flowers to change it up from landscapes I have been posting.  Just some random plant with a bee and some ants hanging out on it.
