The next issue of B&W photography has turned up. I haven’t got beyond the front cover which has a very atmospheric picture of some mist wreathed coastal rocks, a very nice picture, and I am looking forward to reading the issue.
I’ve been playing with Snapseed again, with the colour separation in the header picture. I wanted to get to the stage where I can do this process without referring the very good training videos you can find on YouTube. I’ve managed to do that tonight. OK, there were a couple of steps where I had to pause and think, but I don’t think I’ve made to bad an attempt.
I’m finding that on my morning walks, I am suffering from a lack of ingenuity or inspiration when it comes to taking different pictures on my walk. I’ve spent several years photographing the same thing (mostly the waterfront) with sometimes having a nice dramatic sky to make for a more interesting picture. But now that I am causing these pictures in three different places (The 365 project, Facebook and this blog), I would very much like to develop that photographers eye, looking for those more unusual or artistic pictures. Part of the problem is that I have never thought of myself as being in the least bit artistic. My sister has all that talent from the family.
Sometimes, just sometimes I’ll take a worthy picture, and I think any photographer would admit that not all of their pictures are perfect. Without a doubt, I don’t think I have ever taken a picture that is anywhere near perfect, but I have taken a few with which I am quite pleased.
