Things I learned in July


Since the beginning of the year, I’ve committed to my improving my photography skills.

So, in July, I chose a slightly different take on a still-life project. I started with some frozen lemons & kiwi; the lemons didn’t quite have the transparency I was hoping for. However, I really liked the way the kiwis turned out after editing – the color  & detail in the fruit. After cropping and a few minor tweaks, below is the edited version of the “kiwi.”

The settings I used for this shot were: ISO 100, f13,1/320 sec & 46mm focal length.


Then, re-discovered my Wacom Bamboo (which I have had for years collecting dust) and having been using it to edit my photos. I particularly like the brush strokes used to edit this picture. I was able to remove the distracting power lines in the picture.

Have fun with your pictures and ….give it your best shot!

The Master of Life gives me strength to make through life – one end to the other.
