Macro Monday ~ Volume 19

Welcome to Macro Monday ~ Volume 19! Until now, I processed all my images to 95% in Lightroom. However, this week I wanted to try something different. Several years ago, I owned NIK post processing filters for Photoshop. One of my photography friends informed me that the filters are now available for free. In case you would like to check them out, please follow the link here. Again, this week I played with dabbled light. I exposed for the highlights to ensure that I don't blow them out. After converting them from RAW to JPG, I finished the photograph in Photoshop with a film preset from the NIK collection (Kodak Ektachrome 64).

Macro Monday ~ Volume 16

Welcome to Macro Monday - Volume 16. For starters, I did it again. I wanted to stay away from red flowers, however the daisies were too beautiful to pass up. So I worked with shadow and light this time around. The backside of the flower is very interesting and more yellow than red. macro-monday-16
