I was browsing on Flickr the other day and came across an awesome macro shot of a water droplet. Take a look at it here and the best part is the photographer has a tutorial on how she did it as well as lots of other great info on Digital SLR cameras on her website. She actually tells you step by step how to set up the shot. If you have an iphone she also has an app to help you out with your photography.
I have been lucky to be able to have a short visit over Easter to Montreal as my son now lives there. It would have been better if I didn’t get a chest flu while I was there but we made the most of it. We had all sorts of weather from tiny snowflakes on the first day to ice pellets on the second and then beautiful sunshine. My son has a great canon camera so I was able to take it with us every day and played around and nowI am addicted and when I save enough will be getting my own. I have finally got around to starting a Flickr album so if you are interested you can take a look here. I have set the photos to not be downloaded but will have some free for you to take and I will be also adding more of my textures there for you. If you like any and want to use them for something just contact me. I will also be adding some to the store.
I am often asked to edit the families photos and the main thing is getting rid of those blemishes. If you use photoshop this is worth a look. There are many different ways to work so check out a few and choose what works for you the best.
I Love old photos but have you ever thought about reenacting them. I have heaps of old photos of my extended family and they are among my favourites. Irina Werning was inspired by them in her photography and has begun a project that would be interesting for everyone to try. The idea would be great as a photography project and also the basis for a scrapbook page or altered art piece.
I don’t want to post images as they are copyrighted to the photographer but this is well worth taking a look at here.
