“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.
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.

This was a very fun photo shoot. There was this leafy plant in my family room. I decided to spray the leaves. I set up my tripod and attached my macro lens to my camera. Then the shoot began. Lighting was not a concern. There was plenty of natural light streaming in from the windows where the plant was placed.
In shooting macro the best tips that were passed along to me were:
– shoot in aperture priority mode using manual focus
– shoot in live view and magnify the area you are focusing in on
– place a diopter (magnifier) over the live view screen to further focus in the subject
