2016 FAVOURITE PHOTO

Bubble.jpg

I LOVE THIS PHOTO.

I HAVE IT PRINTED OUT ON ALUMINIUM AND IT IS HANGING ON MY FAMILY ROOM WALL.

TO TAKE THIS BUBBLE, I HAD A BLACK SHEET SPREAD ON THE DINING TABLE, A LAMP, CANON 60D MOUNTED ON TRIPOD AND CAMERA SETTING ON TUNGSTEN WHICH CREATES THE BLUE AFFECT.

COULDN'T GET ANY BUBLE SHOTS IN THE AIR..... SO I CHANGED TACTICS AND DECIDED TO SHOOT THE BUBBLES THAT HAD LANDED.

HERE IS MY MASTERPIECE!! :)

~~oOo~~

PAINTED ROSE

Red_Rose_-_Light_Painteda.jpg

I LOVE NIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY..... OR BASICALLY ANYTHING WITH PRETTY LIGHTS.

THIS BALMY NIGHT I WAS ADMIRING MY LOVELY RED ROSES AND DECIDED TO GET A LITTLE CREATIVE.

SO I PUT ONE IN A VASE ON MY COFFEE TABLE IN FRONT OF THE BLACK SCREEN OF MY TV.

A COUPLE OF MINUTES LATER I HAD THE CANON 60D SET ON A TRIPOD, LINED UP AND SET TO MANUAL AFTER FOCUSING ON THE ROSE WITH THE LIGHT TURNED ON. SETTINGS - AV - F8, ISO 100, CABLE RELEASE ATTACHED AND I WAS READY TO GO. LIGHTS OUT.

ACTION - CABLE RELEASE BUTTON AND START PAINTING THE ROSE WITH A LITTLE BLUE COLOURED MINI TORCH.

I INSTANTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH THE RESULT! THERE'S NOTHING MORE EXHILARATING THAN KNOWING YOU HAVE NAILED A PHOTO!!... :)

WELL MAYBE THERE IS... BUT THAT'S ANOTHER TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION LOL.

MACRO

2016 - I WANTED TO GET BETTER AT MACRO PHOTOGRAPHY. I STILL NEED TO WORK ON THIS. NOT QUITE HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS.

MY TINY WORLD

Small_Worl..ur_-_Jettys.jpg

GOOGLE 'TINY PLANET PANORANA' IMAGES AND THIS IS WHAT I WANTED TO CREATE.

SO I UPLOADED ONE OF MY NIGHT PANORAMA PHOTOS TO PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS. THE FOLLOWING IS THE PROCESS.

1. MAKE THE PANORAMA SQUARE. GO TO IMAGE RESIZE AND UNCHECK THE CONSTRAINTS BOX AND COPY THE WIDTH NUMBERS TO THE SPACE FOR THE HEIGHT. (DON'T CRINGE AT THE RESULT..... JUST DO IT)

2. CLICK AGAIN ON IMAGE AND ROTATE 180D

3. GO TO FILTER / DISTORT / POLAR COORDINATES - SMALL WORLD )

HINT.... IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE A STRAIGHT HORIZON AND NOT TOO MANY DIFFERENT SHADES ON THE HORIZON. THAT IS WHY I CHOSE A NIGHT SHOT WITH BLACK BACKGROUND.

PRETTY COOL HEY :)

PLAYING ON PHOTOSHOP

People_-_S.._reflection.jpg

2016 SAW ME GETTING MORE CREATIVE USING PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS.

NOT MUCH TO SAY ABOUT THIS ONE...... EXCEPT MAYBE THAT I HAD TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS HAHA.

TOOK A PICTURE OF HUBBY WITH MY NIFTY 50MM LENS. PLEASED WITH THE RESULT. DECIDED TO ADD SOMETHING INTERESTING.

I HAD SEEN SOME COOL MANIPULATED PHOTOS USING SUNGLASSES REFLECTION. THIS IS RELATIVELY EASY TO DO USING LAYERS IN PHOTOSHOP. I PLACED A SHOT I HAD TAKEN OF GREEN WATER REFLECTIONS AT THE MOUTH MAMMOTH CAVE, MARGARET RIVER BEHIND HUBBY. THEN USING A SIMPLE LAYER MASK I PAINTED HUBBY'S SUNGLASSES REVEALING THE GREEN WATER REFLECTION PHOTO BEHIND :)

PLAYING WITH TOPAZ LABS

SPEAKING OF PHOTOSHOP.... IF YOU HAVE IT, THEN YOU NEED TO DOWNLOAD TOPAZ LABS THAT HAS A LOAD OF PRESETS THAT CREATE PHOTO HDR, GRUNGE, BOOST EFFECTS. PLUS YOU CAN ADJUST THE PRESETS OR EVEN CREATE YOUR OWN. I HAVE HAD A LOT OF FUN USING THE TOPAZ LABS IN PHOTOSHOP. GOOD FOR TURNING ORDINARY STREET SCENES INTO SOMETHING PRETTY COOL :) HERE ARE SOME OF PERTH.

ATTEMPTING PORTRAITURE

2016 ALSO SAW ME HAVING A GO AT SOME PORTRAITURE PHOTOGRAPHY.

WE HAD A PHOTOGRAPHY MEET UP AT THE GOLF BOTANICAL GARDENS IN JOONDALUP... NEARBY HOME. I SUGGESTED THAT IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA FOR US TO HAVE A MODEL POSE FOR US ON THE DAY. DAUGHTER KELLI WAS HAPPY TO HELP OUT...... ESPECIALLY SINCE I BRIBED HER WITH A FREE LUNCH A AND GLASS OR 2 OF WINE ;)

I TOOK SOME FABULOUS PHOTOS ON THE DAY AND SO DID THE OTHERS.
MY KELLI WAS A STAR! :)

Great set of photos and interesting to read how you got some of the effects - I'm going to play around with some of my panoramas too :) I especially like your blue bubble and the B&W dandelion seed head
