Mobile Photography & Editing

Palace of Fine Arts Theatre – San Francisco

This photo was taken with an Iphone 6 and processed with the mobile app Snapseed. The app allows you to mask, add layers through the double exposure tool and edit your photo with a variety tools that most computer software programs offer. It will also process RAW photos.

If you are looking to have some fun on the run, I would recommend taking the time to learn this app!

Photography-Creative Processing

 “Imagination is the beginning of creation”, George Bernard Shaw.

My photography club decided to challenge our members to create a new image using a provided sunflower photo. It was quite fun! The final image was created from 3 separate photographs. The software programs used were Smart Photo Editor; Photoshop; Luminar.

Photography – Capturing the Sun

“Nothing is hidden under the sun.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Samsung S9 – f/2.4; ISO-50; 1/276 sec.

A couple of weeks ago my camera club went on an outing to the Chicago Garfield Park Conservatory. The sun was shining full force through the glass ceiling above casting rays of sun on portions of botanicals throughout. I decided to take photographs with both my camera and phone. To my surprise, my phone captured the sun lit plants much better than my camera!

I happened to be walking through Millenium Park in Chicago one evening and spotted this little girl in a yellow dress who was focused on her own adventure and oblivious to the world around her!

Photography – Creating a Mood

Venice-wp

Venice Before

Before and After – This photo was taken in Venice, Italy on the Grand Canal. Challenged once again in this week’s class assignment – to create a dark, moody image. My tendency has always been to use my go to standard workflow adjustments; highlights, shadows, whites, blacks, clarity…..I was quite surprised by how motivating and challenging it was to go for a different look. My big learning in this assignment was the discovery of the power and different effects you can achieve by using the Curves tool.
