Quiet Thursdays: Playing with Images
One thing I have been doing a lot in the last week is playing with a lot more images. Nearly every day I’ve done at least one which has been wonderful. It is something I really enjoy doing, but really haven’t been doing enough of lately. I need to start making more time for it. As a consequence I only have a few photos to show you.
When I show these they are usually ones I’ve done a lot more processing on. I don’t do that with my weekend wanderings post, well, not much anyway. So it is nice to just play and see what I can get.
This is my monochrome madness photo of Hopetoun Falls but I had to do in colour as well. The colour version seemed to get a lot more attention on Google+ which was interesting. I think I like the colour version too, there is something about the greenery.
Last Thursday when I was on my way back to Melbourne from the Mallee I stopped off near Castlemaine and spent some time with Bev from the blog FOZZIE.M. She showed me around where she is. I have been there before, but it is always better when you find someone who knows the area to show it to you.
The first image was an Instagram one. I took some photos of the top of a ‘mountain’ and while having lunch put this one up. We stood there and watched a bank of clouds come rolling in. The second image was taken further down the hill. It was very foggy and when I saw this and made her stop so I could take photos. I love the moodiness of it.
These have been taken from Seaford to Mordialloc at different times this year. I’ve been experimenting with my processes and I like what I’m starting to get from the more landscape style of shots. All of these were done with my reverse processing, and I really like the results. Still doesn’t always work out, but I’m getting there. Another thing I need to get better at is working on small parts of the image, I tend to still look at the big picture and not break it down.
They are all the images I’ve had on Social Media this week as well. A slow week, but lots of writing and organizing has been happening. I’m staying home today to do more and hopefully the Tamron 28-300mm will arrive. The 15-30mm and the Gorillapod arrived yesterday. New toys to play with, I can’t wait. Take it easy today.
