Just having fun with the Velvet 56 and the lavender in the front porch pot. . .
another shot of just the flowers from last week’s still life
A little multiple exposure fun with my Lensbaby Velvet 56
One of our most memorable excursions in Homer was a hike through the nature preserve, a verdant and lush forest area, which is home to bear and moose (it IS Alaska. . .). In fact we saw a moose before we turned into the parking area. We were told not to go down the animal trails (us? no way!) and to stay on the paths. The path that began as a flat board walk quickly turned to uneven ground with tree roots every 8-12 inches. It took a week or so for my knees and feet to recover- but it was all worth it.
There were ferns and wildflowers everywhere- and it was so GREEN! I put my Lensbaby on my camera and had a great time shooting wildflowers (and yes, even dandelions). I’ll post more another day!
Fireweed had just begun its bloom when we were in Alaska. I used a slow shutter speed with my iPhone to create this impressionist style image.
This image went into Photoshop for some textures. And here ends my week of sunflowers!
I’m a fan of sunflowers in black and white. I added some split toning to the shadows in this one.
Another version with just one sunflower
It’s Sunflower Week! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a still life. I thought my white chair was calling out for some sunflowers- so here we are! I took probably 15 photos and edited them in different ways. I just did a quick Lightroom edit on this one.
A multiple exposure edited two ways. I like the black and white best. 🙂
Sometimes the view from below is best
A multiple exposure flower abstract for Tuesday!
We have been having extremely windy days recently! In fact, it was so windy that I couldn’t photograph flowers outside- so I propped this one in the window to get the best light I could. With the addition of three textures, I’m happy with the resulting image.
My favorite kind of flower edit- soft and dreamy
It is finally Spring here in Prescott. The trees have leaves, our birds are building nests, flowers are in bloom, and cottonwood fluff is floating in the sky like snowflakes- playing havoc with everyone’s allergies. Our irises are blooming, but getting a satisfactory shot has been challenging. I tried several times and finally settled on this composition. I took the image into Topaz Studio and ended up with a look that is not even close to my original image- but I like it better.
