Found Red Trillium

Posted: May 3, 2016 in Uncategorized
When I was teaching my Macro Boot Camp in New Hampshire, local meet-up group organizer Lisa Lacassie took me to Kilowatt Park.  We found Red Trillium flowers blooming which I’ve never seen in the woods, as in my area parks at home I have only seen the White Trillium.  I didn’t want to just shoot the typical straight on boring shot so came up with a little different look with this bud lying on the leaf. It was sunny so used my 12″ diffuser to soften the harsh light.   Did a slight painting feel in Smart Photo Editor.

Patterns in the Sand

Posted: May 2, 2016 in Uncategorized
If you live near a beach, go check it out for some cool abstract patterns. I shoot these with my largest f-stop, f/32, to get all the sand and pattern in focus.. Don’t go the day after it rains, the rain washes away the patterns, so wait a few days after a rain for the patterns to rebuild.
Use the “Structure” slider in Viveza 2 to help pull out the texture in the sand.

Mossy Stumps

Posted: April 29, 2016 in Uncategorized
I always like to create some nice abstracts with these tiny stems that grow out of green moss on old decayed stumps in the woods. I used the Bi-Color Userdefined filter in Nik Software’s, Color Efex Pro 4. Shot with a wide open f/3.5 aperture for the shallow depth of field. Use the 180mm macro on this one.

They did t again! Canon continued their rebate program. Now through May 29, 2016 or until supplies run out we are offering the Canon Pixma PRO 10 printer at $379.99 before rebate (Canon sells it on their website for $699.99). If you purchase the printer plus a package of 13x19x50 sheets of Canon Semi-Gloss or Luster paper, $50, Canon will send you a $250 mail in rebate! This is a pigment based printer and is always reviewed very well. Your final cost is $129.99 plus the paper! You can’t buy a decent document printer for this price, let alone an exhibition quality photo printer! If you purchase a qualifying Canon camera at the same time, Canon will increase the rebate to $350, your final cost $29.99 plus the paper! Call me for details.
