I wanted to share some of my photos from my outdoor photography class from last weekend’s Women in the Outdoors event. As always, please feel free to leave your critiques. I’m still learning, and though I love playing around with Photoshop, I know it can be over used. And of course, there’s always setting up the picture in my camera that could be a problem. So, feel free to leave your feedback – even if you’re not a photographer. Anyone can tell if they like a photo or not. (you can click on the image to make it bigger)
This next one I thought I would try a tilt shift effect on. Tilt shift is when you make a real picture look like a miniature or model. This picture is not the best set up for doing a really great tilt shift, but something about the grass and gravel under the chairs made me see it as a model. What do you think?
I’m not sure I love the texture on the next one, but I love the picture of the muddy boot. This was when I started feeling like the class nerd. I went up to a perfect stranger and said “may I take a picture of your boot?” After the strange look, she said yes. From then on, I was the dork with the camera, taking pictures between shooting bowling pins and riding ATVs. Luckily, I didn’t know anyone and will probably never see them again.
Who doesn’t love a good cowboy picture?
I’m still learning to take good pictures, and I’m always going to be learning how to edit well, but I’m definitely loving my new hobby. Who knew that I would love taking pictures so much?
