I have been gone from this blog for a week. This needs an explanation, right? Well maybe it doesn’t need one. But I’ll give you one anyway. The update comes in the form of three key things.
I am now using a really nice computer with a high resolution monitor. It’s so nice, and photos look amazing on it. 😀
The old photo editor was deleted off the old computer. So I am learning to use Photo Director 3 (which comes free on windows). Photo Director 3 reminds me a lot of Lightroom. It’s WAY nicer than Picasa 3, and any of the other free things I’ve used. But because it’s more complicated, it’s taking longer to get the hang of.
I am getting more and more restrictions. I now have way less time to post.
Due to these things…expect less posting. It might only end up being once a week or less.
That stuff said…I have been experimenting with Black and White photography. None of the following images received much (or for most of them, none) editing. I was going for a moody feeling in these images. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them.
So I put on some mascara and lipstick, then afterward used the retouch tool to remove an ittsy bit of poison ivy. I have had poison ivy for a little over a week now. But it’s mostly gone.
Today I am sharing some of my recentest photography from five stages of a day.
Day, Golden Hour (2nd), Twilight, Sunset, and Night.
I am excited to be finally doing a ‘stages of the day’ post. So here we go.
p.s. This isn’t the kind of post I can keep to my ‘just 5 pictures’ rule. 😀
Back to the normal digital photos!
Just a few quick golden hour photos with my sis Ellie 🙂 .
So twilight sort of gives you a blueish lighting. It’s between golden hour and sunset. You’d be surprised at how fast it comes after golden hour and then how fast sunset runs on the heels of twilight!
This is legit guys, not a white balance problem.
I have sunsets from two days. They are extremely different from one another. The first is fiery and cloudy (right after a tornado warning came for our area!), and the second is what I call “rainbow lighting”.
And that is a wrap!
Don’t go yet…
I have a surprise for you…
That cute, furry little (gulp) guy was found in one of the bedrooms. He was so HUGE. And scary. And hairy…ew. 😛
“That’s what I’ll be. A silhouette, rarely seen, and yet believed in.”
~Ellen Hopkins (I like the quote, but know nothing about the author of it.)
One thing I have been enjoying is taking photos of silhouettes. I started with taking them when there was snow on the ground. Then the snow left, so I just took normal window silhouettes. For those of you interested–window light is amazing. I cherish it because there are only a few windows that give pretty lighting in our house. I love windows.
