Found this on the hard drive and decided to share it.
A promise of beauty - ISO 100, F4.8, 1/250 sec - handheld. Cropped in Lightroom.
Hi John, Thank you so much for the wonderful macro workshop on Saturday. As always I learnt soooo much from you. You inspire me. After much consideration I decided to call my attempt at making an apple look interesting 'Eve" Your emphasis on the leaf made me choose the name. I will really appreciate it if you have the time to give me feedback. I used a Canon 650D camera with a EF 50mm macro lens. Exposure .3 at f 13. ISO 100. Natural light and using a tripod. Post processing in Lightroom and viveza 2.
I would also appreciate it if you could give me feedback on my Arum lilly. I used the same camera and a EF50mm USM lens. Exposure was 1/60 at f 4. ISO 200. Natural light. Post processing in Lightroom and Viveza 2
Good luck with moving house
IT IS THIS WEEKEND!!
We have a Macro Photography workshop coming up on the 12th of November, follow the link if you interested in joining.
To get you in the mood here are some images taken with microscopes in the Nikon small worlds competition.
By new layer do you mean separate the flowers completely by putting them on a layer by themselves without the book? After fixing the flowers I then put the book and flower layers together again. I can do that. Will figure it out. Thanks John.
One thing I would add to that is that the most prominent rose has quite a few areas of damage and wear showing. The best way to get the roses the colour you want is to make a new layer in photoshop and then paint the colour you want the rose to be onto that layer over the roses. Then change the blending mode of that layer to "color" . then change the opacity to get a believable intensity.
I see faded roses lying on an open book. I see writing. The page is curved. The writing at the back and in the forefront is out of focus. One line of writing is in focus, two is readable.
The colour of the roses should have more purple and green in them. The lack of colour bother me. The centres of the roses is in deep in shadow, but it doesn't bother as much as the lack of colour does. I see a green and yellow tint on the book.
Okay, now break down your own picture for me and tell me what you SEE not what you tried to do.
