Went to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo today. I took about 150 photos, so I’ll have a few animals to show for the next few days. Maybe some of them may actually fit a theme! My husband and daughter and I had a great time. The first two shots that I will share with you came from the aviary. Both were processed in Photoshop Elements with adjusted levels, high pass filter and burning. Hope you like them.
My tomato plant was killed by the frost we got a few nights ago. These are the little tomatoes left on the potting soil from that plant. I like cross processing and used a filter from OnOne Photo Essentials 3 to apply the effect to this photo.
I have been playing with the new filter from Topaz called InFocus. It takes quite a bit of fiddling with the controls, but I really like some of the results I am getting. You really have to decide between sharpness and remaining artifacts when dealing with this kind of alteration. Interesting, though. . .
Shooting in late afternoon light (about 4:00 pm), I captured this bottle bush blossom for today’s photo. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with levels adjustment, desaturated and several kinds of brushes added. Just a touch of whimsy for the day after Thanksgiving! Hope you all had a great day.
Camera settings: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, F/4.5, 1/50 sec., ISO 100, focal length 37 mm. No flash.
This poor vine is still trying to put out little cherry tomatoes on my front porch. I wish it had this much fruit on it when it was hot! This was processed in Photoshop Elements 6 and Topaz Adjust spicify. Levels were adjusted and some burning was done to the final product.
Camera settings: Fujifilm FinePix S700, F/3.5, 1/80 sec., ISO 200, focal length 6.3 mm. No flash.
I’ve been think about this topic for a while and finally decided to make a collage of photos. These are photos taken of house, license plate and mailbox numbers. I layered them in different positions and different blending modes. Then I place a texture of mine underneath the collage and added a frame from OnOne Photo Essentials 3. Hope you like it!
I know, I’ve got to get out of my yard!! Anyway, here are some more fall leaves that were just too pretty to pass by. Processed in Photoshop Elements 6 with just a levels adjustment and a high pass filter and framed. Have a great week, everyone!
