This is a recent experiment with a Photoshop option that I haven’t tried before. Basically I had a generally well lit photo of these flowers. I then did a Channel Mixer layer (this is a download I got from Earthbound Light website) and mixed the colors down to only the blue flowers were showing. I then changed the “type” of layer from normal to overlay and this is the unique effect I created. The “type” function (I don’t really know what it is called) is in the upper left hand corner of the layer in PS Elements 3. I want to try some other effects and processing together to see what I can create.

It has been a while since I have posted. Today was the first meeting of the Geauga Park District camera club. We went into Big Creek Park to take photos and this was about the best that I could do. Anyway, it will get me thinking about photography and forcing me to continue to grow.

Click on the picture above to read a fascinating article about Evangelical theology. I agree with his assertions and have for years. It is just nice to see someone talking about it. I know this is not exactly fitting into the scheme of photography but I think it is important.

Sunset in Pa.

While we were in Pennsylvania for my parents’ 40th anniversary celebration, I took some time to experiment with night photography. This is not extremely interesting but it is a step towards understanding light. Posted by Picasa

The next thing that I want to learn is how to compose photos with “lines”. How do people look at pictures and how do I want their eyes to move? Things to discover…

My stock photo business is starting to take off (ooohhh… $16 across 10 sites). But most important to me is that I am learning by trial and error and some education what makes a good photograph. I’m also learning that I don’t always agree with the judges as to the merit of a picture. Maybe as I go along I will understand what they are looking at.
