Night Over San Antonio

Night Over San Antonio

Now that my editing technique has changed there are images that I can edit now that I wasn’t able to do before without causing massive issues with the final file. So with the use of Photoshop and went back and looked at some images and figured why not give it a try and see what the result can be. This was shot off my balcony in my hotel and I just like the sky contrasting with the buildings. Enjoy.

Shadowy Doings

Shadowy Doings

Just some images I have laying around that I wanted to have some fun with. All of the editing was done straight in Photoshop just using tone curves and dodging and burning. No artificial color enhancements other then setting the white balance. While neither images are technical marvels it does let you know how far you can push an image in Photoshop with just a few minutes of editing. Enjoy.

Intricacies of Fishing

Intricacies of Fishing

I was shooting off the boat dock and I saw this man and I am going to assume his 3 daughters “fishing”. Dad was attempting to fish but trying to herd three little girls he wasn’t having much success. Something was going on in the water at some point so he pointed it out to them and I happened to have the camera pointed in their direction and took the shot. Enjoy.

These are the other flowers that I took when I did the Sunshine of Your Love images. I have no idea what these flowers are called and to be honest doesn’t really matter. They are flowers or weeds or something between them. I’m not a botanist and really don’t pretend to be otherwise. Like the other set of images I shot these using an Olympus OMD-EM1 and the Olympus 75mm 1.8 (150mm eq). Using tweaked settings and a ISO of…

Stroll Along The Lake

I had switched off to my Sony RX100M3 for a lot of the shooting as I wanted to see how it would preform shooting from a tripod and how far I could crop it down before the image quality started to drop. While I love my micro four thirds gear; for highly detailed landscapes you can see it start to lose quality in the finer details. With a large…

Sunshine Of Your Love

Sunshine Of Your Love

  As usual; points if you get the reference. I am fighting of a potentially debilitating attack of man flu also known as a sinus infection because the weather has been a bit weird. Still, I managed to stop and shoot a small plot of flowers I have been driving past daily. Fairly obvious some of the flowers that were there. I used an Olympus EM1 which I recently changed some settings on to get better detail out of via…

Cloud On A Lake

Cloud On A Lake

I was supposed to do more Baltimore Basilica but I hit a block and just could not figure out what direction I wanted to go in so I moved on. Sometimes you have to go with something you know so you can get the best effect possible for your images. I moved on to a nice landscape image I took of Lake Fairfax. I went with a change of pace and used my Ricoh GR to do the images. The…
