Rusty

October 18, 2012

Here is the last of my Worldwide PhotoWalk shots for now. I think the yellows in the rust and the blue ship complement each other fairly well, and I like that the lensbaby blur let me de-emphasize the upper left part of the image.

All in all, I liked using the lensbaby again, and I’ll have to dig it out more often.

Feather, Abandoned

This is another photo from the Worldwide PhotoWalk. I saw this feather lying on the ground among a bunch of fallen leaves and thought it might work out. Again, it’s a lensbaby shot with a heavy vignette added in post.

Fallen Leaf

My Worldwide PhotoWalk shots have now been edited down to three processed images that I’m reasonably happy with (and a few more that may get dusted off sometime in the future). I’m going to post them over the next few days.

The first is a fallen maple leaf in a puddle, still clinging on to that last little bit of green.

Portrait of a Cat

October 15, 2012

Saturday was the fifth annual World Wide PhotoWalk. I decided to shoot with a single lens for the walk (as opposed to switching back and forth), and decided that I’d break out the lensbaby for the first time in a long time. I figured I’d stick with a singleĀ apertureĀ for the day as well, since changing the magnetic discs can be a pain. So, while I was figuring all this out at home, I took a few test shots and liked this one of Annie. This was with the f/5.6 disc, before I switched to f/8 for the walk. I put a pretty heavy vignette on here, and I likely will on most of the photowalk images; the lensbaby blur can be a little disorienting and I think it helps to burn it down a touch–enough so that I’m wondering if I should find a clear filter for it and darken in the edges to do the vignette naturally.

There will be more photos coming over the next week or two, as I finish the processing on the photos.
