Because of various weather issues, I’ve been spending the better part of the last week just catching up on landscaping. That means fewer big, DSLR shoots, and more shooting what I can find with my camera phone. I kept planning to upload these in the evenings after I was finished working, but wedding planning and other professional editing projects took priority. So now, I just edited them all in one go in one huge memory dump from my camera phone.
While shooting a wedding, I noticed that my setups are becoming more complex.
After about 14 years of heavy use, my mower finally quit on me.
Max helped me go through my books, looking for readings for the wedding.
As summer arrives, Max must defend the apartment from ever-fiercer insects.
We had some nasty storms, but the clouds were cool.
Was shooting a local event, and I noticed that I and the mayor are the only ones cool enough to not wear name tags.
I also wound up with a ton of flower photos. Since I took so many to be sure that I had at least one clear image, I wound up with a slew of surplus photos. I decided to get experimental with the editing, and I think that I wound up with some cool results.
Did I go too far with the Lightroom effects for these? Feel free to let me know in the comments below.
Never underestimate what I can get done while I mean to be working on something else. I’ve been plowing through my to-do list the last few days, but things don’t seem to be coming together as much today. I got out of the house and went to Scribbles, my favorite coffee shop, thinking that the change in atmosphere would help. I wound up just shooting around the shop on my cell phone instead. It’s nice being the featured artist for this month here. When people see me shooting, I can just point to the walls and say, “Yeah, I’m the guy who did those.”The feeling is far more satisfying than it should be.
The light through the front window was absolutely gorgeous.
I love these little lights, especially how they look in the window.
I am currently the featured artist at Scribbles. Today, one guy was asking about an artist’s statement, and the barista just pointed to me and said, “You can go ask him.”
I kept playing with the GoPro editor most of the night… and then the program crashed just as I was exporting the video. I put it back together this morning. It’s not quite perfect, but I thought it was worth posting anyway.
