July Photography

As July quickly passes me by I have found very little time to focus on any art projects. Summers are busy with travel, work, and school.  Quick tip, never take a statistics class in the summer, it sucks.  So, I decided to break out the camera that I have been neglecting, and went on an evening walk after a round of intense thunderstorms blew through.  Here are a few pictures I took on my walk.  I worked on a few things during this photo adventure.  First, I wanted to move closer to my subject.  I often find that I take a picture from more of a distance and crop the image later.  Next, I wanted to take the picture as close to my mental image as possible.  This means I really wanted to do as little editing in Lightroom and Photoshop as possible, so I used the settings on my camera to create the feel I wanted.  For the most part it worked out, but I still had to do some adjustments in Lightroom.

I did continue my merchandise journey.  I got a round of stickers printed of my “Little Bee” drawing (found in my last blog post).  I’m going to redesign my site this fall, and add in a store where you can easily purchase any of the pictures I’ve take, posters I’ve created, or stickers I’ve made.
