Lensbaby Love Blog Circle: May

I've mentioned that I'm working on a macro floral project depicting
 the color spectrum of the rainbow.
My last blog post highlighted the color yellow using my 100mm lens.

Today, let's look at my Lensbaby versions of the simple,
yet elegant, pale yellow carnation. 

The Lensbaby adds a charm to any subject that appeals to me.

Rainbow Macro Floral Project

Earlier, I told you that I'm working on a macro floral project depicting
 the color spectrum of the rainbow.
I'm having a great time with this project!

Today, let's look at some yellow carnations taken with my 100mm lens.

As you can see, I've played around with the color temperature of the yellow in these images.
Some are warmer, while others are cooler in temperature.

Had to turn this one into a B&W.....

Later in the month, I'll show you the Lensbaby versions of this flower.

Wishing you a colorful week!

Lensbaby Love Blog Circle: April

On a recent vacation, I spent some time working on a personal
 photography project titled, Sacred Spaces.
I made images with the Lensbaby Sweet 35 in a chapel, meditation room, and garden.

Today, I'd like to share with you glimpses of Saint Marys Chapel.
It is a grand space - the quality of light is amazing and the peace is palpable.

I also experimented with ICM - Intentional Camera Movement,
as I'll be contributing an article on this topic to CM's Notebook in the coming months.

Finally, the day ended with beautiful warm light and shadow play.
It certainly was a sweet way to spend a day!

People Watching

On my vacation to the city,
 I got to visit with my favorite gal -
that would be our smart, beautiful, and talented daughter.

We enjoyed long walks, and talks, and great food.

I also did some people watching with my camera, of course.
I saw Leggy Conversations,

Pollock's Inspiration,

Reflections on Reality,

Age and Infirmity

Suits in Motion.

Gotta love vacations!

Gerbera Daisy 2

The Gerbera Daisy again,
 but these images were taken on a different day with different light,
 and my 100 mm lens....

creating a different look.

Currently, I'm having fun editing some street photography from my recent trip.
Talk about a difference in subject matter!

Hoping life is offering you some interesting variety.
Take care and happy creating.

Through the Lensbaby Blog Circle: March

I enjoy working within the format of personal projects.
I have a number of ongoing personal photography projects in the works.
I find that they keep me inspired and moving towards a goal.

One of the personal projects that I'm currently working on is a rainbow 
color spectrum of macro floral images.

Newton's seven step spectrum is a commonly cited sequence
which I'm using as a guide but plan to add many more transitional 
color steps in between the core seven.

I've read that the human eye can distinguish
 about 100 colors within this spectrum.

In these photos, I've used my Lensbaby to capture
 the beauty and color of a Gerbera Daisy.

New Look!

For some time I've been looking for the perfect clean, minimalist blog template.
I finally found what I wanted at Sky and Stars Design Studio.
Angelina also made some custom changes for me.  She was a delight 
to work with and I highly recommend her business!

You'll now find that the two follow options are RSS Feed and email.

Well, I'm off to the big city for a vacation :)
Take care and happy creating!
