Day 16: Shipwreck-a Composite

rockpools.finaledit.jpg]

This Week on Instagram’s @community_whp account, the theme was “inspired”. As i am centering my submissions around puddles. While researching I came across a photo by Kyle Thompson which inspired this photo.

These are the photos i took to make the image. As usual I was limited with light and although it was low tide the tide was further up than usual and i had to search for suitable rock pools. none were the right depth or size so i decided that i would composite them in.

I initially had the idea of using the reflection though thought it may not have communicated the way I intended. So I put back in the boat.

I havedone alot of compositing before though only used an app on my ipad, for this photo I used photoshop.Its not perfect though i am pleased with what i am learnt and will use it in future to composite images.

Have a Great Day.

Today I went up to Arthurs Seat looking for Mushrooms to photograph with my new macro extension Tubes attached to the lensbaby. There wasn’t a great deal though i did find a little patch of these mushys.

They were tiny. i’ll share more for Macro Monday.

All the best

Day 12

Day 12 of 30 day Photography Challenge

Today I received macro extension tubes in the mail. I was so excited to try them out. I attached my lensbaby lens to them and experimented and was truly amazed at the results. I’ve never been one for closeup photography though this has really opened a whole new world. The detail in objects is truly amazing and i think a post solely devoted to this new equipment and photos is needed.

When i got home it was raining so a wander in the garden in between rain showers. I could probably count on my hands the amount of time i’ve photographed flowers. I find them beautiful they just don’t challenge me creatively, unless you try and capture them through a rain drop which I attempted though failed. This flower however fascinated me not sure what it is. Lots of bokeh and a tiny bit of focus to satisfy my creativity.
