Forest Trail

When nature is a great love, make a point to get out and enjoy it!

Take the time to get out on hikes, explore trails, climb mountains, breathe fresh air, really enjoy it!

Even if we don’t have time to make it to the mountains every week, let’s commit to getting outside and enjoying whatever nature we can.

On occasion, let’s take the time to go through our old files and see what we find worth experimenting with.

Sometimes we’ll find a gem, sometimes not, and it’s perfectly okay if we’re not feeling a particular image.

We can always delete it or save it for later!

Magical and fairytale landscape

The magical glow of sunlight one foggy, Autumn morning while exploring the forests.

Sometimes it really pays off to drag yourself out of bed and into the cold, even when all you want is to sleep in.

We might witness something truly magical, get some refreshing perspective, and maybe even meet a few photographers!

Let’s make the effort to get up and out more often, especially during the ‘bad’ weather!

The unexplored paths are often the most beautiful and hold the most value.

Stretching into new areas of life is what our time here is all about!

Let’s not let fear keep us to the path we’re used to following, but stray off in new directions every once in a while.

We never know what we’ll find!

Magical Trail

Winter weather makes it all too easy to spend days inside, but let’s make the effort to get out and enjoy the gorgeous beauty in nature.

We’ll be so much better for it!

Whether we take our cameras along or not, let’s get out and explore, and let the landscape lift our mood and inspire our imagination!

Into the Woods | Before and After

‘Before’ is used rather liberally, as it’s not a true out of camera (OOC) screen grab.

When images are pulled off the camera, they’re sifted through and the initial edits are immediately made, to get a good ‘base’ to work from later.  This initial edit usually includes contrast, white balance, and black-point editing, and is then saved into a queue of all the other images that need to be edited for a second round before sharing.

This first image is the photo after the first editing pass.

The second shows the final version after more extensive editing, including multiple layers, further adjustments regarding contrast, color, lighting, and vignetting.

If you’d be interested in a more in-depth look into the process, please let me know!  Keeping a record of actual steps taken as well as showing actual OOC shots are definitely an area of interest, so expect to see some in the future!

If you have any ideas or suggestions of things you’d like to see, please leave a comment!
