The Pool Players

The Pool Players

This was shot a couple weeks ago but just getting around to editing them as I have been endlessly shooting flowers and other items in Southwest Florida.  This was shot in collaboration.  The person I was with was borrowing my camera periodically throughout the evening as she was interested in photography.  So while I can’t tell who shot what, I know she shot some of them.  There were two cameras used, the Sterling Ricoh GR and the Mighty Canon 330….

Leaves at Sunset

Leaves at Sunset

I was performing my daily watering duties in the evening and I looked up and saw the sun just hitting the leaves just right. I didn’t have the camera with me but ran back into the house and Dad just looked at me carrying the camera back out and didn’t say a word.  They are used to me and my various cameras.  Lined up the shot and fired it.  Some editing in Lightroom and Photoshop and the final product as…

Scorched Earth

Scorched Earth

I posted this image on my Instagram feed but it was modified to fit and left in color.  When I had to dump my phone photos to my laptop because I was out of space I took another look at this one and thought I could do better than a minute of editing in Snapseed.  So I converted it to black and white in SilverFX and then brought it into Photoshop for more editing.  There was noise in the sky…

The Chapel

The Chapel

I have been walking past this chapel almost daily and I loved the light coming down on the alter and the stained glass.  Seeing how cameras aren’t popular in hospitals I used my iPhone to capture the image.  Normally I don’t use iPhone stuff on this site but I have an app called 645 Pro that mimics a DSLR interface and it saves files as TIFFs so I can a wee bit more out of them.  So with a bit…

Droplets Again

Droplets Again

I didn’t plan on doing the droplets again but I was enchanted by them.  Don’t worry I’ll change it up with some other Florida shots before going back into the flowers again.  While everyone seems to enjoy the flowers, I am clueless about them.  I was told by an independent observer that I am doing well to keep the plants alive.  So I’ll take that as a compliment but when I was asked what a certain plant was I just…
