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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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…)
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…)
It took an hour to edit this picture of a pair of gates and I used Photoshop Elements, I’m not that pleased with it. It is a complex program though and so with practice I could get better using it. I’m using the 30 day trial and so have to decide whether to buy it. I can get a 20% discount on the full price! (more…)
It poured with rain on Friday and when it stopped we took a few photographs, this one shows the effect of bad light and a suitable subject. This was a demolition site and the water adds to the effect. I also did a sepia version of this photograph, but the black and white seemed to work better. As usual, I used Windows Live photo gallery for the editing. (more…)
Aquarius horoscope, Wednesday, 25/5/2011
Life is not all about work, but we have to do it. Try to find a way to make what you do more fun and interesting. The Sun in your creative zone aspects revolutionary Uranus. All it needs is a change in your thinking to bring you more enthusiasm, more playfulness and greater inquisitiveness. Mix this together and pure magic is possible.
I am a little creative today. That is my horoscope for today and I got a little inquisitive last night and took a few photographs for my Neodigital Art blogs. Andy Warhol did a screen print of a Campbell’s tomato soup can, amongst other things and so I had a go and started with a Hartley’s raspberry jelly. I did some more pictures but this one will do for a start. It’s more fun and interesting and I have some more close up pictures for my next blog about art. (more…)
