Here I am at week 3 of my Fine Art Nature Photography class with Kathleen Clemons at PPSOP.com. We're learning to do mirrored images in CS and in PSE. We're also experimenting with the Orton Method a/k/a sandwiching. Here are a couple of my images:
Cicada .. Intentionally shallow depth of field using Vivitar Macro +10 filter. Applied dry brush effect and flattened image.
Doubly mirrored, panned image. Mirrored first image horizontally, then used that image and mirrored it vertically.
Applied sprayed strokes effect. Started to clean up the water using the clone tool and decided to keep going for an implied waterline and a more graphic effect.
Thursday evening, June 20, I had the pleasure of capturing the graduation ceremony for the Seniors of Glen Rock High School. Of the 173 graduates, 168 have been accepted to college and two will be joining the Armed Forces. Below are some of the images of the day ..Please click here to see all 72 photos as posted by Patch.com. (Click any photo below to enlarge).
My stained glass work has taken the front seat for the past few months .. See my glass blog, click here .. I've got about 2,000 images still to edit from our Montana-Washington trip back in May. I'll get to those. In the meantime, I'm taking another wonderful PPSOP.com course entitled Fine Art Nature Photography, taught online by Kathleen Clemons. Here are some of my images from the first two weeks of class. All were taken with my Nikon D7000, my 18-105 lens and various strengths of Vivitar macro filters.
