Isaac and I went up to Bridle Trails Park today to do a little hiking.
In related news, I found something very interesting today, while surfing good ol’ Facebook.
I found one of my very own photos, one that was taken last May, being used as the background image for a meme in a Facebook group.
I’ve contacted the page admin, asking them to remove the image. No one ever asked permission, I only happened across it by luck. I posted it watermarked, but on their meme it appears watermark free. Interesting stuff.
I’m not going to post the meme here, because it contains inappropriate language, but this is my photo, taken May 12, 2012 in Bellevue. If you click it it will link to their page and my photo. They still (24 hours later) haven’t taken down my picture.
(Feel free to comment/report to your heart’s content. I alone haven’t had much effect on them)
I found this frozen rose bush on a walk with Toby today, and thought it was really beautiful. I played around with the black and white setting that my camera offers. Both of the following images are basically SOOC.
I’ve been enjoying playing with Photoshop lately. I want to look into classes on the subject, either online or in person, I’ll have to do a little research.
I am slowly figuring out a bit on my own; altering colors, adjusting contrast, and making collages (like the one below) but I have loads more I want to learn. I grew up playing on a computer, so all the typical stuff is like second nature, and I want to get to that point too with Photoshop.
I love my new fisheye lens! I just got it for Christmas, and I’m still playing around with it, seeing what it can do.
I took this on the way up to Poo Poo Point yesterday. I was looking for ways to capture the blue sky for my daily photo challenge, but in the end I got this great shot for today.
My other favorite
Also, I just got my newest toy today, a set of Kenko extension tubes. I put them on my 18-55mm lens, but I can’t get it to focus. I think I read somewhere that they don’t automatically focus with my camera body, a D5000. but I couldn’t get it to focus even on manual. I tried my 55-200 lens and they seem to work okay there…could there be something wrong with my 18-50 lens or is it just with the user? Any thoughts? Do you have extension tubes?
