I absolutely love taking pictures of flowers…especially when I come along such a variety of them as I did at the fair. However…macro photography and the even more complicated micro photography requires  much practice, steady hand, a good lens to really get it right. Nevertheless…I enjoy practicing. Anybody can take a picture of a flower…but I shoot for the different angles to try to make the photo unique…though occasionally a flower calls for a more standard shot. All of these were taken with either auto flash or non-flash mode on my Rebel. At fairs I try avoid using the flash because I’m not sure of the affects that it might have on the prize seeking flowers…but as it was Sunday, after judging, I figured it was safe….However the flash color shocks many flowers and since I didn’t have a flash filter with me I just turned it off..as such, many of the macros have a lot of noise in the images if you enlarge them however for tumblr, they seemed to work out okay.

Week 6 #1 

This is one that I wanted simple but a bit unique since its likely many BGSU students might do the fair. The original (bottom picture) was taken on my Rebel’s non-flash auto mode on Sunday at the fair along the midway near the grandstand. I took it in hopes to capture the fair atmosphere. Then in the middle image I oil painted it with the filter in Photoscape but as you see it wasn’t quite perfect yet. So I used an eyedropper to get color from the photo and smooth out some lines with my pen tablet (had to get it out has I hadn’t used it in a long while) then I cloned out the power lines that was left in the image. I added a filter to bring out the fair atmosphere.

Week 5 #2

So this  I really didn’t expect to get anything of any importance and has open up some new ideas for me since this one seemed to work out well enough.

The top picture is a more of 2 pictures (used 1 twice, so really a totally of 3). The top layer in Corel was the bottom image (the tree image). It was taken with my Canon Rebel in February of this year at Wintergarden Park. Bright and sunny day after some snowy dreary days drew me outside. While I liked the image well enough it wasn’t calling to me anything special so I didn’t mind playing with it (not that of course I don’t keep originals anyway).

The middle image, that consisted of the two bottom layers in Corel was taken with my Canon Rebel in May of 2011 on an obvious sunset and in Cleveland Ohio from my old apartment window ( I do miss those sunsets if not the city)… I only made one of the layers the top half of the tree and the other layer I flipped around so it was like a mirror image…to reflect the sunset colors. I erased part of the flip image to get ride of one of the skylines… I also kept some of it to add the texture and color to the skyline I was keeping (hence the reason the final product has a less defined skyline…with some interesting light play).

I was not going for realistic in the image, just some digital art play with some photographs, so it allowed me to be less perfect and just have fun
