This is becoming my special place to photograph and wander. Last week the estate had an open house and I represented my work at the Estate. I showed up a little early to wander the estate and take some pics. My macro lens can in handy for these captures. There was still a little snow but I managed

Color and black and white! Lightroom and Presets Fun

"Mask" Left: No preset, Middle: Banging Black and White, Right:Big Bold Color

These are edited photos using some of Cole's Classroom Presets for Lightroom. The first photo of every set has no preset, just has some enhancing in Lightroom. 

I had a chance to load a few free presets from Cole's. I love to experiment with presets in Lightroom and to see what happens to an image. Some of the presets worked well and enhanced the photo. 
A lot of presets are used in portraits but I thought I would try non-truadional images. 
I don't take many portraits

This is how to install Presets

What do you think?

Looking Down, NYC

These are taken from the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. The museum give you lots of opportunity to photograph from it's window. Making it almost as interesting to me as the art within the building. Capturing a moment in time!

Instagram Fun

I just love Instagram! I find the area near south station and chinatown perfect for wandering and taking photos with my nikon and phone. Tons of grit and color. I always try to get a few shots of South Street Diner, too.

 Instagram is fun and kind of flexible with the filters. Sometimes, I print my photos and put them up in the Dedham Guild in my space at the gallery. It is kind of fun to brag you took a photo with my Samsung phone

 Explore Chinatown and check out South Street Diner, This is my instagram feed.

Winter Bits

We recently went vacationing last weekend at Stowe Mountain Resort. Not many things too photograph or maybe not for me to photograph. I don't ski so I did a bit of wandering. I found a few things and then took a tumble on the ice. Time to go back in.

I did get some marshmallows, which I love!
