Week 9, #45 Full Edit (Technical), Tiger Longwing Butterfly

Full Edit-1.jpgHere is another photograph from my recent trip to the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory.  This beauty is a Tiger Longwing Butterfly.  This photograph was great straight out of the camera, but I decided to add my touch to it in post.  I increased the saturation slightly, added some clarity and contrast, did a small crop, added a vignette, and some lens correction.  My favorite part of this image is how you can see the butterfly’s proboscis (tongue) curled up.

Week 8, #25 SOOC (Technical), Swallowtail

SOOC-1.jpgI recently visited the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory.  I thoroughly enjoyed the warm, humid environment and the many butterfly species found there.  I spent quite a bit of time observing and photographing them.  This image, a black and red Swallowtail (I believe), is SOOC (Straight Out Of the Camera).  It is one of my many favorite images from that day.  I love the pop of the red against the black as well as the pink flowers that appear to be glowing in the background.
