Reply To: How do size pictures on Mac?

Hi Kenneth! @k3t6 I have a Mac, running macOS 10.12.6 Sierra. I’m not sure how to resize something in iCloud, but I suspect it’s somewhat similar to doing it if the photo is on “the ground” on your hard drive :). In Preview, I resize my photos in Preview, but I believe you can also do this in... Read More »

On Assignment: Waiting for a Breakthrough!

On Assignment: Waiting for a Breakthrough!
Ready to shoot the next real-life photo assignment? Well, here it is! My first shot over by the fence didn’t work too well, simply because the sun didn’t come out strongly enough. Looking at it later on the computer here, I decided I did like the composition though. Over by the “path” the sun did come out a little... Read More »

Reply To: Flower/Flower with Butterfly

Nice job with capturing the butterfly! Now that I think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever done so myself! Personally, I think both photos could be much more dynamic if they were composed on a third rather than the centered composition. The photo with the butterfly seems unevenly weighted (there’s a lot... Read More »

Also wondering what you anyone thinks of these two? I wasn’t quite sure how to compose intentionally with more abstract scenes like these, but I liked the textures and colors. I was kind of thinking more along the lines of stock photography when I shot these. Again, specs in file names, shot in Manual, edited in... Read More »

It’s been a while since I’ve had an opportunity for landscape photography so I was happy when the family decided to go to the beach one evening last week. Unfortunately, there were a lot of people there, and it was nearly impossible to find an angle of the sunset without a bunch of people in it, but I tried to make... Read More »

Thank you, James. My dad gets home from a business trip later today and he might be able to help me post them. It would also be great if anybody knows how to size them to fit here. Thank you so much! Kenneth Read More »

Reply To: Sparkler fun

What a fun photo, @k3t6! It has a real celebratory feel to it, with all the curved lines intertwining with each other making it fun to look at. It’s not clear what the subject is, but that can be ok in pattern photos. The pattern itself is the subject. I do like the bright area where the light painting begins,... Read More »

Reply To: Shooting RAW… ugh…

I’ve started shooting in RAW recently just as it seems to produce more detailed/sharper photos. I have a Mac so I mainly use the “Photos” app (which works extremely well for what I do) and Photoshop Elements for any in depth editing. The only problem I have when editing is that my laptop is quite... Read More »

Reply To: Shooting RAW… ugh…

@austinvinar, yeah I would go with Lightroom (as that’s what everyone uses), but I hate subscriptions, and I don’t want to be tied to old software, either. I’m thinking about going with ON1… I’m giving it a thirty day trial run right... Read More »

Hi @k3t6! Welcome to lenspiration and the wide world of photography! Your photo is impressive to somebody new to the hobby. It looks like you know how to lock open your shutter for a while (which is the first thing most people wonder about when taking a photo like this), and you used a tripod or something sturdy to...
