Week 8: Zoom Burst x Technical

Miscellaneous, Portraits

Definitely still playing catch up, but listen.

This zoom burst challenge really got me challenged. And I’m giving up on it. I know I’ve achieve it before – and you know what, I’ll include one of my favorite shots from that time at the end – but this time around? I cannot get it down. So I’m calling this one a wrap and moving on.

It’s not really an effect I try to achieve, like, ever, anyway.

And then, here’s an old selfie from 6 years ago! in Philadelphia, when Maria and experimented with our cameras one night. I think we got the zoom burst down that night.

This past week has been pretty wild between Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and all that other junk. But I’ve still got two nights of Blogvember to share some new stuff with you guys, and tonight I want to share another ‘finny waves’ macro picture of the fish fins I photographed last week.

Split Ends

Portraits

I searched my archives tonight looking for something good to post because I felt photographically frustrated today while trying to make some new content.

I ran across an old selfie photoshoot I did last year around February and decided I’d utilize my new Wacom tablet and re-edit one of the pictures. I just tweaked some minor stuff, fixed some blemishes, used a different Photoshop action. I like the final product.

I’m weeping inside at the split ends you can see in this picture though. My hair has really come a long way in almost 2 years – THANK GOD. Also, I feel like I may have shared this photo previously. In a set. Because it’s saved as a set as well. Oh well. Double dose it is.

Tonight’s post seems like a burden cause I’m not really in the mood to blog. BUT IT’S BLOGVEMBER and I gotta keep my promises.

I got my Wacom Intuos tablet in the snail mail today and it’s pretty glorious! It sped up the photo editing process and hopefully will motivate me to work in Illustrator again. Hopefully.

Anyway, here’s another shot I really liked from my short trip to Yates this past weekend. There were some branches on the trail that still had berries and I thought they made for good points of interest. Pretty sure I took this on all manual as well.

I found a tuft of branches at Yates that still had red leaves on it and I thought it made an interesting shot.
