This week’s theme was Rustic.
Just a few random shots around one of the older Vancouver Neighbourhoods – Kitsilano.
I love photographing nature. And ocean things in particular are a passion of mine. When I tried my hand at sketching courses I took shells as my subject. I will say I didn’t do too poorly. But definitely photographing them is more in my skill line. These were taken with my Pentax 90 point and shoot. I need to take my Canon out next time.
This week I played with my Pentax waterproof point and shoot. It seemed appropriate to do an ocean theme since I bought it for my first snorkeling adventure in Mexico. Since there was no opportunity to go snorkeling in Vancouver this week, I settled for some shots of sea shells and sea stars. Then I decided to do some black and white work. Working in black and white is a fascinating process. You have no idea how many varied effects you can get from one photo until you start playing with contrast and filters.
Even photos taken with an iPhone camera can be fodder for a few creative hours in [insert your photo editing software of choice]. I happen to enjoy Adobe Lightroom.
This week’s theme: Pretty Fishes
These are the three unnamed beauties who live at my workplace. Yes, there are eight photos this week. Call me generous!
