For the final post in this short series. This might end up being the longest…but I don’t know for sure. We were visiting some friends…this post has water, miniature ponies, azaleas, and swinging. Plus some more randomness.
Going home I shot pictures from the windows.
That’s a wrap, folks.
I hope you enjoyed this little four-part series. I could have added tons more than I did…but my memory is really getting small now.
On this day…we celebrated my birthday (way) early.
Guess what? I am doing my first actual senior shoot sometime soon. I will be attempting to do a dear friend’s photos for her (she follows this blog). I don’t know if I’ll be posting any of them or not. I hope so…but if nothing else—good practice 😀 .
We will gallivant all over creation. And have a lot of fun. 😉
Tune in to Part Four soon! It’s the ‘finale’ (but don’t expect TOO much, people!) so that will be it.
Then there are just nice settings to improve white balance and softening. Like in this image:
All in all…it’s been a ride.
I do acknowledge that this sort of editor COULD make one lazy. But I refuse to be that type of person when it comes to editing. I still prefer quality from my camera…I only like basic editing for my actual photography stuff.
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. 😛
Eva Marie is about two weeks old now, and I finally got to take some pictures of her today. This really had me nervous, and I really started to feel my inexperience. This is such a new thing for me. I feel like I need to learn how to compose better. I really wish I wasn’t just self-taught. Sometimes I feel like a class would be a lovely thing. But some of these came out good, despite the troubles.
And true to my new resolution…only five pictures! But I hope you like them anyways.
