Redbuds on my garden path
Drop petals on the ground
The beauty, color of them all
Makes joy in my heart abound!
The pretty red/magenta color is scattered all over my garden path today. I loved seeing the magenta along side the spring green trillium!
The snow of the cold winter is gone and the ground is thawing. Spring is beginning to emerge! With it comes a new camera – a mirrorless Sony a7 IIIr, which has the features of my Nikon D800. But it weighs a fraction of the 10-15 pounds I’ve been carrying. While these aren’t stellar images, they are a result of learning. The Sony menus are very different and I have a ways to go to find the settings that work for me. Enjoy Spring as it bursts forth!
I enjoyed creating black and white images in the style of Edward Weston the last few weeks. See the Gallery of images here.
Bright yellow maple leaves greeted us today at Morton Arboretum. These images were captured mostly in East Woods where maple trees abound. It was late afternoon, with sunshine being overtaken by clouds. Everywhere we looked there was yellow, bright yellow. I love the East Woods! (A few Impressionist images are included!)
Studio 2 offers new challenges. The first assignment was to photograph a “grab bag” item. All the items were mundane, every day objects. We were to photograph it in a way that made the object look like art, like a featured image in a magazine. So, can you guess which object I had to photograph? And what lighting style I chose?
