I love playing around with photography. I love that you learn so much more by stepping out of your comfort zone and looking for a different angle or a way to get the color just right. I only recently acquired Photoshop and I still have not yet used the software to manipulate a photo. I prefer to use my creativity behind my camera. However, I will also be the first to tell you that I find Photoshop fascinating. It requires a great deal of skill and creativity and I am often blown away by the things people can do with it. I’m looking forward to getting into it and learning the basics. If I can learn to remove an ugly electrical pole from an otherwise beautiful shot, then I will be thrilled.
I love finding the abstract in the everyday. Recently I saw an amazing photo of a water droplet with a perfect reflection of a flower just below it. This is my first attempt at such a picture. Obviously it is nowhere as brilliant but it represents a beautiful fall morning spent doing what I love. I love that the water droplets reflect the blue sky and the slightest glimpse of what was a beautiful tree line in the background. I will continue to practice capturing reflections and one day I’ll get the one I’m looking for. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the journey.
