Still life of my faded Valentine’s Day flowers. When I looked at them through the lens, I saw more beauty and drama in the dying roses than in the fresh ones.

Shot with my Lumix LX-7, fitted with a pair of 10X + 1X macro filters. 5 shot focus stack, post processed in Photoshop CC with the Nik Collection.

Vintage Sunflowers

Visited the Charleston Farmer’s Market in Marion Square on my last trip and came across a large flower booth. I was so happy to discover a big barrel full of sunflowers hiding on the side of the booth!

A Romantic Bouquet – creating a vintage look

I recently received this photo of a bouquet I had sent. It was made up of two of my favorite flowers, irises and lavender roses and I could not resist giving it a vintage treatment. I painted it with several layered textures using blending modes and layer masks and…voila’!

I am really enjoying exploring a softer, more romantic, vintage look for my photos, a radical departure from my customary style of highly stylized, highly saturated images. Could see a whole new series of images done in this style coming down the pipe real soon. Feeling a creative shift…maybe I’m in love?

Kayaks – Key Largo, FL

I was walking the jetty in Key Largo at sunset last Thursday night when I came across a bunch of kayaks moored on the dock. This picture practically took itself! Nothing like sunset in the keys to take your breath away. It was only a two hour drive to Key Largo, but it seemed like I was so far away from home. Life is slower, the people are nicer and the water was a balmy 84 degrees. Life is good!

Still Life – Tea Stained Rose

A change of style for me…I call this Still Life – Tea Stained Rose. Done with new Nik Software Bundle and Topaz Bundle along with textures, overlays, layer masks, clipping masks and other cool techniques I just learned for Photoshop. Thanks to Leslie Nicole for all of her tutorials and great encouragement!
