A flower falls, even though we love it.
I hate to be that guy, but I’ve never been a fan of this holiday. Probably because I spent too many of them alone. Shrug.
I’ll probably be spending the day eating junk food and doing something artsy to express myself.
I hope you have someone special to share it with. Don’t forget to spread the love and let your single friends know you love and appreciate them too.
This hyacinth was shot with ProShot and edited with Snapseed and iColorama. Then I used artista Impresso for the painterly look.
I’m out at Eagle Lake, just south of the Canadian border, for the 4th. Our friends have a house right on the water, so this is the view we have to put up with for a few days 😛
I shot this with the default camera app and did one small adjustment in icolorama. I mostly achieved the look I wanted in camera by having the sun just out of frame.
Last night, around sunset, we had stormy skies that had a few breaks in it. I was feeling optimistic, so I went for a walk down between the ponds. For a moment, it looked like the sky was opening up right where I needed it to. Unfortunately, it closed back up after 5 minutes, and about 15 before sunset.
Instead of walking back with nothing to share, I stopped at the house on the corner to take my first shot at it. It’s abandoned and falling apart, obviously. There is so much cool detail and texture on the outside. I plan on exploring it more thoroughly one day. For this shot I just wanted a wide shot of the property. Next time I’ll be up close with my super wide angle iPro lens. I may even see if I can have a look around the inside.
Shot with ProHDRX. Edited with Snapseed, Mextures, and iColorama.
A couple of years ago I took a bunch of photos of animals at the natural history museum in NYC. I thought I would do something cool with them eventually. And it only took like 2 years for me to play with a few of them.
This was edited in Snapseed, Mextures, and iColorama.
This has to be the least impressive fall I’ve ever seen. The drought, and warm temps here in Oregon, have caused a lot of leaves to fall before they ever had a chance to change colors.
I shouldn’t have to go photograph plastic leaves in a store to get fall colors, but thats exactly what I did for this photo. Ok, I didn’t go to the store with the intent of taking this photo. I was the boyfriend being dragged around while my girl shopped. I tried to make the most of it by looking for interesting shots.
To hide the plastic fakeness of the leaves, I used iColorama to get a painterly style.
The other day, while I was waiting for some Japanese takeout, I took a photo of one of the lights and decided to do a fun edit in iColorama.
While I was taking the photo, my girlfriend’s 6 year old son was asking how the ceiling in the photo turned out all black, which lead to a little conversation on how a camera works. He actually figured out that its like our eyes. I was pretty impressed. Maybe I’ll teach him how to take photos on one of my old iPhones.
We lost power for a little bit the other day. It was a good thing, because I’ve been getting distracted a lot lately. The lack of electricity helped me focus on doing something creative. I decided I should go through all of my images on my iPhone and see what I haven’t edited yet.
I found this gem from mossy grotto falls in the columbia river gorge. I thought it would make a nice painterly image, so I took it into iColorama and worked my magic there. Then I took it into Snapseed for some finishing touches.
