Life Thru the Lens 22/52... A few of my favorite PHOTOGRAPHY things....

Jill from Daily Bread mentioned the editing process I used on the wildflower photos that I shared in a recent post. So, I thought I would share a few of my favorite things. 

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

These are A Few of my Favorite (photography) Things.... 

  • Although, I strongly believe in capturing a photo that is nearly perfect straight out of the camera (SOOC), I also believe that my artistic style comes from my particular editing techniques. One of my very favorite editing supplies are the Greater Than Gatsby Preset/Action sets. I own them all, and I use them all on a regular basis. They have a terrific deal on their Collaborative Set right now. 
  • Design supplies have become an integral part of my editing and Creative Market is my go to place to find fabulous graphic design items. 
  • I believe that all artists, no matter if their medium is photography or paints, have something new to learning. To further my knowledge in the photography and design industry I have been taking classes through CreativeLive
  • Although I have a wish list a mile long, my camera bag is not full.... Nikon D7000 with the 18-55mm 3.5 lens, Nikon 55-200mm 4.6 lens, Nikon 50mm 1.4 lens lens,  Nikon 105mm 2.8 Macro lens, Fuji XT1, Fuji 18-55mm 2.8 lens, MeFOTO RoadTrip tri-monopod, LowPro Flipside Sport backpack for hiking, Vanguard Kinray 43 Sling backpack for travel, various Tiffin Filters, a 5 in 1 reflector set, and, other miscellaneous items.
  • Cell Phone Apps are an amazing thing. I do not always have my camera on me, but I always have my cell phone, and apps are an integral part of the process. I own and use VSCO with all the filters, Instagram, PhotoDirector, HyperFocal, and Photo Tools. When I head back to an iPhone the first app I will purchase will be the Camera+ app. 
  • Of course, I would be setting you up for failure if I did not mention my backup system. I have 3 external hard drives... yes three. After losing all my photos I am determined not to have that happen again, so basically I have backups for my backups. I would also be backing up my photos online but our internet is limited so I am not currently using an cloud service.

The Good, The Fun and The Random....

It was our anniversary last weekend. One of the nicest things about it was planning a little getaway and not having to worry about it being interrupted by "work".... ah, retirement from the military is grand. I'll be sharing more of our weekend adventure next week.
