A Little Fresh Air

I’ve been cooped up a bit too long between staying home and my time working at our local food co-op, time to go outside and hug a tree.  And grab a photo or two.

Working Within

Although I am able to still work during these trying times, I am not getting out and running around much to practice my photography.  Like so many other photographers I am finding ways to be creative at home.  In this instance, a wilting tulip leaf provided some inspiration.

Decisions

This image was captured on my Nikon FM film camera.  I photographed the negative with my full frame DSLR and imported into Adobe Lightroom for initial editing, then into Photoshop for inverting.  The image on the left is pre-invert, the right, post invert.  I am having a hard time deciding which I like better.  The reflections on the negative version seem to pop more but, the detail of the docks stand out more on the inverted version.  Your thoughts…

Wide Open

Wide Open

Wide open spaces where the wind blows unobstructed, the roads vanish in the distance and the sky goes on forever.

North Dakota Prairie

I recently traveled around parts of North Dakota and had time to capture a few shots that I felt give a sense of the open spaces that exist in the western part of our country.  One of these days I hope to spend time slowly exploring these wide open places under the big sky.

Images were captured using my Sony RX100 V.
