Here are some images from Yosemite National Park, White Sands National Monument, Grand Canyon National Park, and The Missions of San Antonio, Texas to celebrate the National Park Service's 100th. Anniversary. So thankful for the service of the Park Rangers, and staff of the National Park Service.
Here's a quick tip on creating vignettes with different colors instead of the standard black or white or shades of grey. I got this from Kathleen Clemons Creative Live class. Visit her website at www.kathleenclemonsphotography.com
This technique uses the free NIX software from Google. Check it out.
If you're into doing panoramic photos and use Adobe Lightroom CC to process the image(s), here's a new feature just released in the latest update. It's called Boundary Warp. It's available once you have selected your panoramic images and process them in Photo Merge - Panorama. Once the images have been processed the new feature is available prior to completing the merge. This is pretty cool as it eliminates further processing in other software to achieve the same results. I made a short video showing how it works, see below. Comments are welcomed.
In june, 2015, and again this past month, I had the opportunity to visit several static USS American ships.
The first being the USS North Carolina Battleship, berthed in Wilmington, NC. Then the USS Yorktown Aircraft Carrier, the USS Laffey Destroyer and the USS Clamagore Submarine berthed in Charleston, SC, and just recently the USS Texas Battleship berthed in Houston, TX. It's a very emotional experience to learn the history of these ships and the hardships and sacrifices of the crews during war time. If you can, don't pass up the opportunity to visit any historical warships.
