When I slow down and take a closer look at where we live, I’m often surprised to see a kind of wild beauty around me that I never expected in a place quite barren of moisture and green. The small details remind me of the life that’s really inside the desert – besides sand.
Jen Swedhin has been kind enough to Skype tutor me on how to use Lightroom, so now I’m just playing around with it. I edited 2 shots I took of one of the plants around here.
First up is a seed pod, taken with a 50mm, ISO 400, f/1.8, 1/4000 sec.
The second is the plant where the seed pod grew out of. It’s a bit off, but I still love it.
Taken with the 50mm, IS0 400, f/1.8, 2500 seconds.
Love the curls on that plant. And you couldn’t even really see them in person until I pulled up the pictures later.
Which one is your fave? What could be different next time? What’s your favorite program to edit in?
And if you’d like to link a favorite photo of yours in the comments to give me and others some inspiration, feel free to do that. Just grab the url to it and paste it in the comment box. I’ll come by to peek at it.
