Saw this idea in my browsing of photographic sites and images … Love the way the magnifying glass can enlarge an image, catch a reflection or just change the tones and sharpness. Easier with a buddy this is something one can do alone .. as I have here.
I am completely unable to pass a reflection, anywhere, without at least assessing it for image potential. Was out to dinner with a friend in Rundle Street recently and while I was attempting to be attentive to our conversation, I couldn’t resist these reflections in the folded glass doors! Enjoy!!
Glass is a beautiful artistic medium, and I am blessed with friends that make and enjoy fantastic pieces. Three here to enjoy!
I love landscapes. With my propensity to go in close, I was delighted to read that one can define landscapes as narrowly or broadly as one chooses! I have chosen smaller scale landscapes for this blog post.
I have an increasing number of international connections on my FaceBook page. They share their local surroundings and to the eyes of an outsider, they are foreign and wonderful. Wondering if my Adelaide, South Australia images are likely to be wonderful to an overseas page visitor??
Discovering the idea of selectively saturating and desaturating parts of images has adding a new dimension to my creativity. Fun!
There is a terrific tutorial from PhotoExtremist that inspired our first attempt at shooting burning steelwool. Great fun – but be prepared for mess, dangerous sparks and quick action. We are pleased with these, and have purchased some finer grain steelwool to see how that works.
It was a stinking hot weekend and I posted on FaceBook that it was too hot for photography. A friend suggested that I tackle the air conditioned kitchen – what a great idea!!
My favourite shots are with a macro lens!
Another example of shooting an item in a variety of ways – to test ones creativity and development as a photographer.
