Spring Flowers

I am currently using all kind of techniques to photograph Spring flowers. In this image I used a wide open 50mm lens to create a very shallow depths of field. I got the center of the yellow flower sharp and I enhanced the sharpness just in the center in post production to create an even larger contrast. I addition I applied a painting filter on an extra layer to blur the rest of the image just a little bit.

Enjoy and keep on photographing!

Stamp Mill

David and I drove into the foothills looking for wildflowers. We stopped in Coulterville, a small foothill community in Central California where I put my glass ball on some old mining equipment to photograph the stamp mill and the old hotel in the background. Sometimes you have a goal and try to photograph and you are successful and sometimes you discover new subjects and you come home with totally different images than you had planned for. That’s all part of the game being a photographer!

Enjoy and keep on photographing!
