FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY - BASICS OF DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY
TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY - EQUIPMENT - PHOTOGRAPHY SOFTWARE
Another year and another very busy month of January. Preparing images/prints for four competition/exhibits. 1. Lake Granbury Art Association Photo Group Annual Show, 2. Photo Place Color of Light Exhibit, 3. Center for Fine Art Photography Landscape Exhibit, and 4. The Nineteenth Annual Stars of Texas Juried Art Exhibit.
This is my eighteenth year of serving on the Stars of Texas Exhibit Committee and you would think I would be prepared well in advance. NOT! Saturday, February 4th, the Reception and Awards for the winning entries will be held. Check the website (www.starsoftexasjuriedartexhibit.com) on Sunday the 5th. for the results.
I started following a young photographer based in Florida, TJ Drysdale. I came across him from Creative Live and purchased one of his training videos. His style and work is outstanding and I recommend you take a look at his work.
While I'm recommending various websites, I want to put a plug in for my son's latest efforts at blogging. He's an aspiring writer and I find his musings very interesting. (I'm not biased in anyway). Check it out at Jon Levesque.
Thanks for stopping by.
Although I've lived in Texas most of my adult life, yesterday was the first time I had the opportunity to photograph a cattle trail drive. Weldon Wilson, of Brownwood, TX, decided to transfer his Longhorn cattle about 16 miles to another pasture. Instead of just loading them up onto a truck, he had several cowhands trail drive them to the new pasture. The trail was mostly along country roads and one major highway crossing. Also of interest, Bob Phillips, of Texas Country Reporter, and his TV film crew were there to film the event. I didn't get to go along the entire trail, but I had a great time photographing some of it. I do want to thank Gail Croft, a member of our local photography group, for inviting me to participate.
Serge Ramelli, a French photographer living in the beautiful city of Paris, France and in Los Angeles, CA. is a favorite photography instructor of mine. I have been following Serge for several years now and find his style of teaching very easy going and easy to follow. During this time I have learned a lot of tips and techniques in using both Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. He is very generous with his instructions and gives out a ton of free stuff, (tutorials, raw files, presets, etc.). In fact if I post the following link to his YouTube Channel I get to choose one of his courses for free. Now how can I pass up a deal like that. I bet if you were to follow him and that if you have a photography blog he might just make you the same offer. I hope you enjoy his free Youtube tutorials.
Check out Serge Ramelli's Youtube channel! He has over 400 tutorials on photography, he is the number channel on Lightroom worldwide. If you want great tricks and tips photography check him, out! https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=cmoeu
Thank you Serge.
Super Moon over Morgan's Gun Shop on Short St. Brownwood, TX. I have to be honest. This is a composite of two images, (Street Scene and Moon). Street scene was taken Nov 14th, Moon was taken Nov 13th. Is it cheating? Nope, just my artistic interpretation.
