SNOW LAKE 034

The snow has kept on coming this week and at the time of writing, I’m expecting more. We do expect the weather to improve over the weekend though. I noticed a patch on my roof where the snow is melting, it’s over the hatch to the loft which isn’t insulated. Heat’s escaping! Have you looked at your roof?

This post was originally published on a zillion ideas on the 1st of January 2013.

LIVE EDIT

I start each blog with a photo and I used this one yesterday. I edited it with Windows Live photo gallery. The sun came out for this one and the blue sky is reflected on the water. The aperture was narrow, so good depth of field, but it wasn’t so good before editing.

THE SANNA -ART

I think this photograph is quite artistic, it was a good shot and then I edited it to try to get something artistic. This is the original picture:

Neodigital Art | Changing seasons

MONDAY 002

I took this photograph last October on a sunny day. You can see the colours changing and reflecting more light. The light was better in Autumn last year than we have had in summer this year. We have to be prepared for whatever nature decides to throw at us and make the most of it.

ORIGINAL

I took this photograph last Autumn and as you can see the sun was bright and reflected well off the Autumn colours. The picture looks dull though and so I can improve it a lot with editing. I used Windows Live Photo Gallery, it’s easy to use.

Neodigital Art | Editing tutorial

BEFORE EDIT

Neodigital Art is about using your computer to make something artistic; in my case from a photograph and so this means editing. I prefer Windows Live Photo gallery rather than the more complex Photoshop. I opened this photo in Windows Live Photo Gallery. I took this photo of the lake frozen over in December. The light was quite good and in the afternoon I had the light behind me. I was shooting down the lake rather than a cross it to get depth. The trees also add some depth to the picture. At the top of the page you can see an option to click to edit, organise or share; obviously I clicked edit. I chose this picture again. (more…)


Neodigital Art | Update 27

motorway 005

I like the colours in this first photograph because they are muted Autumn colours. The light didn’t seem too good and my friend stayed in the car, he didn’t expect there to be good shots though! There are reds, browns and yellows in this photograph and even the black and white horse adds to the picture. (more…)

Photo edit

I’ve started this week with a screen shot to show the photo edit in Windows Live photo gallery. You can see all the tools you have for editing. I’ve cropped my photo for widescreen, increased the contrast, gave it more ‘highlights’ and increased the colour temperature adding warmth. I took this photo on Saturday with a wide aperture after the rain. (more…)


Neodigital Art | Update 24

Wide aperture

Berries

I’m getting technical this week because I switched my camera to A for aperture this week to take this shot. The depth of field was very short (the berries were close) and so I got the berries in focus and as a bonus I also got a spider’s web! (more…)

Great Bridge 001

Photography

I’m tired of rain and dull days, but now winter is fast approaching I have to think of some different camera settings to get decent photographs. This photograph is of the local lake or pool and the colours will begin to change now as leaves fall from the trees and we get more red and yellows in photographs. I’m not looking forward to winter but last years photographs of the snow were quite good. (more…)
