Thought I would try taking some more photographs with the Lensbaby Sol 45. This time I added a 16mm extension tube. It seemed to work really well. It was a little windy today so I set the shutter speed to 1/400 of a second and was surprised at how sharp the focal point was given the wind.

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.

Flowers – Photographing Indoors

Purchased flowers provide a great opportunity to creatively practice your photography skills during the winter months. Anything in your home can be used as background. To my surprise, the insect in the bottom photograph hitched a ride on one of the flowers I purchased!

Photography – Patio Flowers

All of my photo processing is done using a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop Elements. I also use the NIK Collection which is a plugin that can be used in both programs.
