I decided to take a much overdue photo walk today and noticed, among other things, a group of moths in a flower bush. I took enough photos to experiment with the editing. Normally, I only choose one from a series, but I can’t seem to pick a favorite from these. So, I decided to post them all and let you guys decide. Tell me which one is your favorite in the comments below.
I was scheduled to photograph a softball tournament, but the event got rained out. So, I walked to the library with Karen, and took a few photos on the way. I normally try to keep my editing light, but I thought that I would get more experimental. I decided to go with some fairly drastic adjustments to the clarity and contrast. I even did an in-camera HDR with the building photo. Overall, I’m pretty happy with the results.
My old neighborhood is in something of a swamp, so the insects are out in full force with summer. The beetle was out by my grandparents’, and is actually a night shop I snapped the shot at night with my new flash and 50mm 1.8. The dragonfly was actually shot with my camera phone while I was mowing a lawn. I dropped it into Lightroom where I bumped the contrast and clarity, played with the saturation, and added some lens distortion.
