Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

Capturing the still life

After lunch today, I forbade my fanny to sit down in my recliner. 
 Instead, I gathered up an assortment
of   items   stuff   junk and built a little 
make-shift studio near a window.

I love taking photographs. 
 I'm taking more and more of people, and even quite a few of landscapes and scenery,
 but my still lifes need some work.

I think I do pretty well composing  portrait shots and landscapes. 
 I really like that part of the process, about as much as the editing post-process.

With no people or spectacular scenery to practice on today, I played around with a still life shoot

SOOC

Basic editing: sharpen, levels, white balance, repair background

Texture: "and then some" by Kim Klassen

Don't you just love seeing the progression from
 straight-out-of-the-camera to finished product? 
I have a few more examples hanging out in my photoshop project
 bin to share later.

The negative space on the left kind of draws you in!
I love the texture on that last one.
