Playing With My Photos
I love to play with my photos!! I spend hours playing around with different software programs to see what does what. I replace skies, use HDR, create Panos, do Focus Stacking, and drop in background textures. I edit every spec of some photos and use multiple programs, and, yes, sometimes I leave some of my photos pretty much alone, after a minor edit or two. The photos shown here were taken with the use of a lightbox. The flowers were arranged directly on the lightbox, the shot taken with a Nikon D800 and a macro lens, Nikon 105mm, pointed directly downward onto the box. Several photos, all from mid-range to very high-key, were taken and then a couple of photos were put into Photoshop. I used layering in Photoshop to lighten and darken as needed to get the result I wanted. On some of the images I popped them into a different software program and added borders. I love how these images turned out.
