Weather and Lyla aren’t the only things I like to photograph, just so you are aware. While those are my specialties right now and the passion when it comes to me and my camera…I still like shooting random things that I find interesting.
Here are a few below, with a little caption underneath talking a bit about the photo.
The story behind this photo was 1) we were at Joe’s Farm Grill and 2) a woman tied these balloons to the napkin holder and left for awhile. She had just been standing there waiting for people, but finally walked away. I had been just dying for her to leave because I thought the image of these balloons by themselves against the trees was awesome. I toned it up a bit, faded the color to give it an older looking feel…I really like this. It was perfect for the current theme on JPG Magazine called “Forgotten.”
This photo looks like it was taken out in the country or something, when in fact it was just a mile and a half from my house. I guess it helped we live so far on the edge of town. I was driving by and saw the cows out and about, plus the sky looking blue and cloudy…so I had to pull over. I really, really love this photo and I think it might even be something people would want to buy and hang somewhere. I know a few people who already have it as their wallpaper.
Something I’m in love with lately (besides HDR) is making a photo look worn or older by fading it a bit and giving it some off-coloring. I like this shot with the edges darkened as well and the scene with the desert and clouds is something I just love looking at.
