Ok, so I like flowers, and I like trees, and turns out I like bushes as well. Maybe I should reconsider my career choices and look into something cool like gardening or landscape architect…? Now that sounded very weird, taken that I can’t keep a plan alive for my life. I even managed to kill a cactus!! It did take me a few years, but it was dead in the end. So I think I am best of sticking to taking pictures of them. I don’t think it is possible to kill plants by shooting them, right..? (Pun actually not intended…)
By the way, none the pictures I am posting this week are edited in Photoshop which I usually use religiously. I have only mini-edited them in iPhoto, and turns out you can actually do quite a few things there, among them I corrected the exposure a tiny bit – even if I was overexposing the pictures as I shot them. It looks easy to take pictures of snow, but it is actually a little bit tricky because it is so bright and you want it to be just the right nuance of white, and not grey, yellow or blue. So shooting snow I always overexpose with 1 or even 2 stops right in the camera, and I pay attention to the white balance. But again, those are things that are possible to correct quite well even in easy photo editing programs like iPhoto. And remember to not overexpose too much, because then you will lose information in the picture and the shot is useless. And if you take pictures of people in the snow you have to pay attention to that to, making sure they aren’t overexposed either. Oh, so many things to consider…. That is what makes it so much fun, right?
