Hello, you remember me. The new photographer and very inexperienced photo editor?
Well, I’ve done some more picture-taking and more editing and now you are my “captive” audience. Well, I guess not exactly captive — you could “exit” right now — but I hope you won’t. There are just a few.
A light fixture “up close and personal.” In the editor I actually muted the light so that it was more of a glow. I’m not sure if the edit improved the picture or not. Also, took away the yellow cast by making the picture black and white.
Clouds that were just pretty. Now more dramatic with the contrast enhanced. I was totally surprised at how much prettier this became.
I hardly ever notice this day lily because it’s next to the sidewalk around the side of the house. But I’ve rediscovered it since I am developing my “photographer’s eye.” I love the color, which editing made just a little more vivid. I’m also learning that it’s not just people who look their best in a “close-up.”
And, finally, the love of my life. “Hi. Just ignore me. I’m just fooling around with my camera.”
So he went back to working his crossword puzzle. Yes, that’s what we “retirees” do — we have time to actually finish a crossword puzzle (or sudoku, for me). Isn’t he cute?
Even when his wife “edits” him so that he looks jaundiced.
Sometimes the result I get from “creative” photos isn’t exactly what I wanted. The angle of this one, I think, makes it look like he’s maybe lying across the bed, doing the crossword on the floor!
He’s doing as asked and ignoring me. Not hard because it’s a technique he has had over 40 years to perfect.
p.s. Candy and I are going to have a garage sale Friday and Saturday — more photo opportunities. Stand-by for “incoming”!!
