Winding Tree

Winding Tree

It was one of those “Hitchcock Moments”.
The birds you see on top (and on the other trees nearby) made a lot of noise – in fact, they reminded me of the movie “The Birds”.
Good thing they drew my attention to this beautiful tree.
Trees are always excellent subjects in any season – I love them.

Series: Essential – Part 3

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

When you take away an essential part of a flower – its color – you get the other visual parts that are essential to it – its shape and its texture. On 31 August I posted the first part of this series that I will probably use for my Portfolio page.
I am not sure yet whether I will use these three shown here for the final series, but gave them the label of the series anyway.
You can find the first part here and the second one here.

Well, time for a portrait.
As I said in another post, I prefer location portraiture to studio portraiture (even if the lighting situation is a challenge). People tend to be more relaxed in their “natural” environment or in nature, and I want to capture the essence of people, not just their appearance.
But don’t get me wrong – I also like good studio portraits, it’s just a matter of personal taste.
In the case of this beauty here I chose to leave some background and not to do a tighter “headshot” – the effect was just better in my opinion.

I thought that a Lensbaby Muse was the right lens for this dreamy picture.

When you take away an essential part of a flower – its color – you get the other visual parts that are essential to it – its shape and its texture.
This is the first part of a new mini series that I will probably use for my Portfolio page.
You will see the second part on another day yet to be determined.
