Creating what’s in your minds eye

This old dresser was photographed in northern New Mexico.  I was drawn to it by the soft window light, but just couldn’t create the image I wanted while I was there.   While this image was captured a couple of years ago, I was still drawn to something about it.  I decided to give it a chance and worked the image in LightRoom and Photoshop.  With powerful tools for changing perspective, creating mood, adding light and textures, I transformed the image into something much closer to what I had in mind.  Great fun to work, gratifying to see the result.  What do you think?  Here are the Before and After versions.

Blood Moon – aka Lunar Eclipse

On the night of April 14th / April 15th we were treated to a full Lunar Eclipse.  I knew there would be thousands of photographers out there capturing their version of this spectacular event.  I decided I’d try something a bit different.

This is was done completely in camera.  The only computer post processing that was done was a small crop from the bottom and adding my copyright © to the image.

The star (Spica I’m told) really added to the overall composition and impact of the image.  Hope you enjoy my take on this event.
