Bethesda – In Monochrome

Bethesda – In Monochrome

This continues the series I shot while walking around where I work.  These images tend to be more structural and more random in style.  While the color set didn’t have a theme to it either there was some cohesion with the the visual elements.  I think the absence of color allows you to focus on the tones and textures versus the color.  Just because an image doesn’t have color doesn’t mean that there is an absent of it.  While its called…

Bethesda – In Color

Bethesda – In Color

I shot these a few days ago and when I dumped my memory cards I just cringed at the photos.  I let them sit a few days then came back to them and went through them without attachment and I was pleased with what I found.  A few hours in edit and happy with them.  I did use a new technique in editing to get maximum texture and tones out of them similar to what I have been using but…

Take to the Water

Take to the Water

I went back to the water pictures I shot now that I am not so attached to them and took a editing sledge hammer to them to get what I wanted out of them.  One of the things I noticed is that the 30mm Sigma has a bad habit of going weird on focusing mid-distance items.  It’s ok for up close and at distance but at mid-areas it gets a little fuzzy literally.  Enjoy This is one time I wish…

Flower-ish

Flower-ish

I have been shooting lately.  Too bad I don’t feel like I can edit some of it to my satisfaction or I feel its total garbage and not worth bothering.  I’m mainly just getting out and holding a camera again before I jet off to Panama City, Panama for 6 days of photographic goodness.  So with that in mind, I always snag a flower shot when I can because I’m just good at shooting them anymore.  It should be pointed out…

Industrial Glass

Industrial Glass

I like taking pictures of the reflections I see in the glass in the various buildings around me.  These shots were taken over a couple of days using the Sigma 60mm, Olympus 12-40, and Olympus 75mm.  I also used my Olympus EM1 and my Olympus EM5 to get the shots.  The biggest difference between the Olympus EM1 and the EM5 is that the EM1 has no anti-alias filter on it.  If I look close I can tell which camera took…

All Filler

All Filler

I will admit that these two are filler pictures because I don’t have time to edit the more interesting stuff I shot.  These were done because the flowers were there and I had a couple cameras on me.  The yellow thing was shot with the Ricoh GR and the white and yellow things were shot with the Olympus EM1 with the Sigma 60mm on it.  Neither are spectacular but nice to look at.  Enjoy.

These were shots I took but didn’t know what to do with.  They weren’t that great but I started to play around and see what I came up with in editing.  Went black and white and heavy contrast and then pulled out the orange or yellow from them to make the white pop more.  Then brought it into Photoshop and did some dodging and burning.  I just like the shadows and how the white starts to pop with them.  Made…
