…would be called something else.
A good weekends snapping this weekend. I took maybe 80 – 100 pictures. I have maybe 3 I’ll post. Dear lord I’m glad I’m not paying for developing!
I spent Friday afternoon in the park with the nipper and got some nice shots of her and my missus on the swings (the child was on the swing, not the missus. She made me tell you that bit). These need a little post processing so expect them later in the week.
Yeah, post processing. How about that huh? Whats to say. I think it’s growing on me as much as the actual photo bit. Even slight changes to an image make amazing differences to the finished product. I’m still undecided if it’s cheating.
This rose bloomed in my back garden over the weekend, now anyone that’s seen my back garden will know that it’s probably as conductive to flowers as the central reactor in Chernobyl. Which just goes to prove that (to quote the guy from Jurassic Park) “Life will find a way”
The image has been cropped in to show just the flower and then I used a similar process of the dice to reduce the brightness of the background while keeping the rose bright.
(1/200, f/3.5, aperture priority, focal length – 24mm, ISO – 400, 07/10/07 13:10)
The only other change to the natural state of the rose (apart from some leaf pruning which doesn’t count, does it?) was some gratuitous effect modeling. Yup, that’s right, next stop Digital Light and Magic for me.
I used my latest toy (supplied by the repository of junk known as the cupboard under the sink) to add water to the flower. It was high tech as you’d expect…
Starting out in photography? I recommend a camera, a lens, a water spray.
