Joys in the Attic

Due to having injured my back pushing my car out of a frozen divot, I have not been out shooting much lately.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t find something to do, which includes checking my attic windows for frost patterns.  Every year the patterns are a bit different and I enjoy exploring, capturing and tweaking the best of them.
My back is finally improving and soon I expect to be outdoors searching for new winter compositions.

Revisiting Last October

Last October I captured an image of a row of birch trees that I really liked, but when I got home and viewed the image on my computer, I noticed a wire running through the image.  The updated Adobe Photoshop 2019 has an improved “Content Aware Fill” feature that seems to work much better than past versions and I gave it a try on the image.  I came away pleasantly surprised by the end result.  Is it absolutely perfect? No, but it’s pretty darn good and I would be willing to print the result.  My plan is to print it on canvas which should aid in softening any residual effects of the process.

Still Drifting…

Every time I open Lightroom and see the images in the collection, I can’t help seeing something new.  A little while later, something wonderful emerges.  It’s almost, but not quite enough to make me wish we would get another good snow with wind so I can go out and capture more drifts.
