“Two Photos Of Max” Olympus EP-2
Here are two shots of Max taken during our recent trip to South Carolina and Sunset Beach North Carolina. Look for his feet in the buggy shot below.
And, yes the birds were really there, this time.
While trying to do an "exposure merge" in PSE I mistakenly grabbed too many images and end up with Flamingos in the Art Gallery
That's kind of interesting, isn't it? I love the color.
What would happen if you tried one without making a mistake?
Really nice Max photos, Mike
I wonder how Max will accept #1 when he is in his teens?
I love #2 but you must be careful not to push it toward the genre of Stephen King or Rosemary's Baby Max may hate you for that.
"Fly Over", EP-2 tilt adapter Pentax 35mm lens
Here is one from our recent vacation to the beach. I have a series of photos like this. Just not sure if I will do them as B&W or color. The next one I upload will be B&W.
Very good idea to do the coastline with the Tilt adapter from above. Gonne try that next week when I have the opportunity.
Love the two babyphotos (or should I say young man). That magnetic hair!!
The second one is even a bit scary.
Thanks Michiel. I just realized that the title "Fly Over" might have given the wrong impression. I was referring to the birds flying over me. But now that you mention it, it does look like I am high up looking down at the beach. Actually I was shooting at eye level.
Max does have great hair and now that you and keith both mentioned it, the second is a bit scary.
One thing that isn't mentioned....where did you get the "rough black edge" that some of the first pictures in the thread have?
The image on the wall is a piece that I recently did for Jack Stack BBQ. It is an old family shot that I added “mojo” to and the print is 6ft x 8ft. The second image in the post is a close shot of the print, and the 3rd is the original imagethey gave me.
Beautiful work, Mike. The size and color works so well in the environment
That looks like some challenging family to control - still, the Dad looks like he's up to it..
The front kid looks as if he keeps a key to keep his flies done up - but he forgot
Against The Wind EP-2 tilt adapter with Pentax 35mm lens.
In the original shot, the two birds were out of focus because of the tilt adapter, which is what made me choose this shot. I then processed it in Silver EFX Pro 2 and got these weird little marks going up and down on the file. There were 3 rows of them. I took 2 out and flipped the other one because I thought they looked like birds in the distant and they sort of mimicked the shape of the blowing grass.
Was playing around in PS. Two pictures; sharp and unsharp.
It was a great day for photography today, fog and light rain and on the cool side. I only had time for a quick stroll around the backyard though. I guess the garden is about finished.
“Trees Reflecting On A Golden Pond”
Here is a shot from a little trip around the park with Max. I used a tilt shift adapter with my 28mm pentax lens on the Olympus EP-2. Of course I added some “mojo” to it.
I am glad you got time to make and post some of your work, besides parenthood!
A real Regnier again
(The tomatoes do look abandoned )
Very refreshing to see more mojo - I was getting concerned
And from the iPhone 4S + Blending on Mac (we call it Hipstamatic Fake):
Winter Blur #1
This is part of a new series that I will be working on this winter of B&W shots of winter trees. Shot with a tilt adapter and my EP-2, this image will be printed at 40″x40″. The size makes a difference with the abstraction and the grain.
single shot (cropped). The 5N is same vantage point with 100mm in 35,, equivalent.
Thanks Keith. I did use SilverEfex 2 to convert to the B&W and choose a pretty grainy film look, I think it was Tri-x.
I have tried overlaying other images, but so far I haven't been successful. But I am going to keep at it. Just need the right images.
Base image blurred from iPhone.
Tree Reflecting in a Pool of Water
Another in my "Obscure Trees" series. Not sure I'm done with this one yet. It's two images combined with texture then converted to B&W with SilverEfex 2.
I like these Mike. I think the textured one comes off better. But something tells me that the rain shot with texture would look good
