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.
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.
I am not at all kidding. More snow. At first I was excited…because we only got one small snowfall. But then, it turned out to be rather lame. Not much snow at all. Only around an inch. I still managed to get a few little photos from the snow, however. 😉
In an effort to both follow advice (that I read in a photography book) and also save my blog from having to go to a paid plan (I am already 50% done with my 3GB picture space and I’ve only been doing this blog less than a year!)– I am cutting my posts shorter. This will probably just mean I will share my five favorite photos from each shoot from now on. Plus, the ‘expert’ said it was better that way… 🙄 . But because this is a challenge post…you only get one!
Day Fifteen- high angle
This is the moment where you look at the colors in the image and give me a look: “You did a LOT of editing on this photo, didn’t you?” and I get to look triumphant and say: “No, actually. My camera has settings I can use in manual mode where I can boost the colors of my photo, including color tone and saturation.” . 😉 I loved that fact as soon as I discovered it. I love the depth of field on this one. This plant is rosemary, btw. It’s already very silvery green. I took this photo whilst standing on a bucket. Well, the challenge is on! Will I remember to be regular with this challenge, or not? That remains to be seen!
