I must admit, I’ve felt much like this little critter over the last month. A debilitating bout with the flue, followed by a crippling head cold. Needless to say I haven’t been out doing much photography.
However, that’s changing. A colleague and I went out to Ladner harbour at first light last Saturday. The sky was somewhat misty, so colors weren’t that great, but there were a few shots from the day worth keeping – even if they ended up severely cropped.
Speaking of cropped. I’m trying out a copy of onOne Software’s Genuine Fractals. Actually I’m trying the whole Plugin Suite. Neat stuff, and it should help somewhat with those shots where you just can’t get close enough. So far I’ve enlarged one picture from 4×5 in up to 35×43 in and the resolution is still really good. Enlarging with Photoshop is just a bit softer so far, so it will be interesting to see how far it can go.
I have been taking lots of pictures of events at work. That never ends, and unfortunately I can’t/shouldn’t publish those pictures here (work for hire?). I’ve been trying some things with my flash, like zooming and dragging the shutter. Learning lots through that, however I’ll probably retain even more now that I’ve feeling better, heh.
Onward and upward, as they say. Here’s looking to a more productive summer.
