Random Spring Photos

(another new post. Hold your breath!)

 

Though I may have bored you with photos in the last post, I thought I’d do it again! (Lucky you!) These will be the last photos you will see from my old Kodak camera, as the tax return has arrived and the Nikon d3100 is officially here! Now to learn to use it….

Just fun.

bench cross proc

Lots of curve adjustment to draw that blue out

***

odd effect

pretty flowers. involves some colored overlays to get that sunset look

***

christmas snowflake maniped

Yes, this is still up – and still lit – at the park. To get this I had to darken the original and manually add int he glow and twinkle on each bulb. Worth it, though.

***

it feels slimy

What is this stuff?!?!?! It’s on the evergreens and feels slimy. Some kind of spore thingy?

***

sunset barbed wire

Barbed wire. Used that same overlay tactic again 😉

***

purple weeds

The buggers are hard to get in focus!

***

dandelion

ditto for this!

***

blue water drops

It’s… RAIN!

***

wood

Weathered boards

***

grate

Grating

***

the lake's up

It’s actually gone down some….

***

rainy windshield

and more rain!

Wasn’t that fun? I have a lot more of the rain drops, but I will spare you 😉 As always, there’s lots more photos in general on my Flickr account. The link is in the sidebar over there —->

      The first thing you do is point the camera and take waaay more pics than you need, then you weed through them and pick the best, and then you adjust the curves and the levels… The lots and lots of pics is the most important part 😉
