Hi everyone. It’s great to be a part of the Digital Circuit again. When life (or my camera) gives me a lemon, what can I do? My image this month is the result of a comedy of errors. The original picture was captured just before Christmas when a gorgeous sunrise occurred and I was caught somewhat by surprise. I did not have time to set up on a tripod and could not set the camera properly. The result was a poorly exposed image with camera shake. My computer was working but I could not use the internet so I worked with my Topaz filters. I am finding that these filters are great at picking out lines, shapes and colors that might be hidden in the photo. The result is an abstract and may not resemble the original very much. I have no idea what the workflow was for each of the images shown. Both did come from the same original with different filters being used on each. Some cropping, cloning, flipping of layers and some vibrancy work produced what you see. I have presented two images just for comparison and I prefer the smaller size for each rather than the larger size usually used. I’m looking forward to reading your comments.
|I have been interested in photography all my life and have been taking photographs for about forty five years. The first years were point and shoot images taken with a Minolta 35 mm and later with a Canonet 35 mm camera. I had lots of fun and took lots of pictures. About ten years ago I became serious about learning about the nature and mechanics of taking pictures. I was a junior high school teacher and had set up a photography option. I read everything I could find about the “how to” of photography. I now take both film and digital photos. I have a Canon T70 camera with an assortment of lenses and two years ago I purchased a Canon A80 digital camera. I now get all of my film pictures digitized so that I can manipulate them on my computer. I am a member of the St. Albert Photo Club and the members of the club have been a big help to me in developing my photographic skills.My email address is email@example.com.|
