From Clicking to Creating — 9 Comments

  1. Photography is a skill that never ends there is always something to learn either with the camera or editing. If you enjoy it, it is a fun never ending hobby.

  2. That Scott Kelby article is great! Unfortunately, I’m still at Stage 1, BUT I had already figured out where I needed to start and that agrees with his “level up” for that. Now I just need to find more time to work on it all! I love selective color photos, and now I understand better how to make them, other than using PicMonkey!

  4. I’ve been so busy with family stuff since right after New Year’s that the only photos I’ve had time to take are on my iPhone. I was going to install PicMonkey; but I just haven’t had the chance.

    Back to your photos, though: I love the way the gray background seems to intensify the colors of the flowers and the colors you kept in the photo of your niece. That’s pretty cool “stuff”! I play with the limited editing capabilities built into my phone – and they come out fairly decent most times – but there’s no comparison to what you can do with a program like Lightroom.

  5. Wow, I didn’t know that technique for selective color. It’s so much easier than what I’ve done in the past. Thank you, Mary (I think that I say that every week). Your tamarisk looks spectacular. It was the perfect subject for this one.

    Is that last image a can of motor oil? It looks very cool!

    Thanks for the links. I’ll follow them. My keeping up with Dogwood has fallen apart recently. My dad is needing a lot more help, and that makes me feel frantic all the time! I do plan to keep playing along even if I miss one now and then because it’s helping my photography. And your “Clicking to Creating” posts are also helping me tons! Thanks for doing them.

    • I’m so glad you are finding value in the posts, and learning a thing or two. I’m sorry about your dad, hopefully he will get stronger fast. And yes, that second photo is an oil container. Way bigger than a can though. They were pretty cool, and about 18 inches tall.

  6. I had lots of ideas, but nothing was turning out the way I wanted so I wondered if I would have a submission for this week. Then yesterday, out of the blue, a flock of wild turkeys pays us a visit. I was so stunned my husband had to tell me to grab my camera. All I could think to do was say “Turkey”, over and over. Haha. Most of the photos didn’t turn out, but a few are worth sharing. I liked this one for fill the frame although it doesn’t truly fill the complete frame it is as close as my current equipment would allow. There’s no sneaking up on a fellow keeping as close an eye on you as this guy! Who is looking at whom? https://photos.smugmug.com/2018-52-Week-Photography-Project/i-8D4hQx8/0/627fb4c3/X3/WildTurkeyJake-01-X3.jpg
    P.S. Those burro photos are just wonderful. I hope I get an opportunity to see that one day!

    • My husband has done the same thing with me a time or two. The turkey is great, and I would say it fills the frame because you have it, and a really nice background. And yes, there is no sneaking up on those guys. I’ve tried. Lol
