A rush post to make sure I have a least 3 in June – taking lots of shots just not the time to edit them. Something a wee bit different from me but – well worthy of a share – my son and daughter covered themselves in coloured powder for some fun and charity – the day was perfect for photos and I had great fun deciding which ones to post. I hope that they convey the fun that everyone not just these guys had – a real good feeling and great photos to boot.
Jumping for joy at the end of the 5K run
my daughter obviously buzzing
posing not a skill acquired from his father
Oh so cool :-)
As I work through my back catalogue deciding what can used for stock and what can be added to my portfolio
as well as reviewing and removing substandard work. The process challenges me to review how I have edited
in the past particularly as my knowledge of the software grows. This is an image I don’t think I have published
previously – but I re cropped loosing a large chunk from the bottom brought the exposure down by 1/2 stop
and reduced the vibrance. The result is for me is a more comfortable and natural image. I hope you agree :-)
Castel Sant’Elmo is a medieval fortress located on a hilltop near the Certosa di San Martino, overlooking Naples, Italy. The name “Sant’Elmo” derives from a former 10th-century church, Sant’Erasmo, shortened to “Ermo” and, finally altered to “Elmo”. It presently serves as a museum, exhibition hall, and offices (Description via Wikipedia)
I use Instagram for some fun and this week with emerging policy amendments – the ‘IG’ community spoke with a firm voice and apparently we were listened to – we shall see
Although this time of year has it’s qualities the days are far too short for me. I long for a return to longer days where I can seek out joy and pleasure in the coolness of the tree canopy listening to the birds and the babbling brook – hoping to walk out of the shade – feel the warmth of the sun and be exposed to a magnificent vista………………..
Please link back to my most successful image ever Glencoe Glory to see where within that image this one derived from – enjoy!
These are small snapshots of my most successful Instagram Images – I thought it might be interesting to share, couple of points to note – it is mainly my landscape work but not exclusively which is popular, wildlife on the whole struggles and people crash n burn – moody coastal scenes work every time but then I understand that. Anyway if you want to follow me on Instagram or Twitter just search @skm1963 – I find it fun and relaxing :D
