I met a family at the Downtown Bradenton Bus Station the other day to do some photographs for them. I was a bit curious as to why they wanted their photos at the bus station until I saw it. WOW! What a great space!! We took photos from this angle, in front of the various murals, and in front of the wooden slats. They are amazing photos and I cannot wait to get back and take more photos here.
I was at my parent’s house this past week and decided to play around with my new camera. My niece was very curious so I gave her my older camera to experiment with. At one point, she began taking pictures of me, so I turned and took a few of her at the same time. I love the look of concentration on her face; her lips are stretched all the way back… So cute. Her photo of me is below.
I’m a little behind in my posting again, but I’ll be catching up this week. For this wild card entry, I created a digital negative in Lightroom. I started my photography journey with film photography. I was always fascinated with the negatives and how they worked.
A few months ago, I happend across a video of someone who scanned their film negatives into their computer and then edited them in Lightroom to create a digital positive. I decided to try the opposite to see what would happen. I’m still just as fascinated with the negative. The original image is below.
I did an image similar to this for a client a few months back and I loved how it turned out. So, I decided to do one for myself. I used my new table top box and a macro lens to capture this image. Then, in Lightroom, I de-saturated it just a little, removed some of the background, and viola!
