Autumn in Connecticut
The Autumn in Connecticut photography workshop was so much fun! Thank you Richard Spearin and Lydia Bennett for teaming up to bring together your photography friends to make the Photography Field Day a success! I’m so grateful we found Castle Craig as a place to go for afternoon photos. It was a gorgeous view!... Read More »

My quick tip for you, Caitlin. You may have already been doing this, but for something like this you should be setting your aperture to what I’ve heard described as a “who cares” aperture. This would be about f/8 or f/11 (because you really don’t care about anything not being in focus). Definitely use a tripod (mine... Read More »

Glenelg Jetty Sunset

Glenelg Jetty Sunset
I took this picture recently at the Glenelg Jetty in Adelaide. It really wasn’t the ideal photography scenario – partly due to the fact that the beach was crowded with tourists and peple swimming right in front of the sunset. But, also because we got there when the sun had already begun setting and I left... Read More »

Thank you to everyone that submitted a photo! We really do appreciate your support. Unfortunately, none of the images that were submitted were what I was looking for. For sake of time right now, I’m going to have to be very brief. @blessingscaptured’s pumpkins looked great, but weren’t suitable for... Read More »

Thanks James, for the comments. I wonder where the softness you’re seeing comes from; maybe it’s the result of slight camera movement between frames? I don’t think it’s out of focus. What’s funny to me is that, upon examination, the softness, which is present in the .DNG file too, looks... Read More »

I just love the autumn feelings associated with this photo! I wouldn’t have guessed it was an HDR. That’s a good thing. It still looks very natural. Perhaps give it a bit more sharpness (unless it’s the JPG compression that makes it feel soft….soft, not out of focus)? The vignette is a bit... Read More »

And oh, good decision, @elmullet, to submit your photos here on the forum as JPG even though you were unable to figure out a way to submit a DNG version. If @bensharpeningcharacter needs a higher resolution version than the ones you submitted, then I’m sure he’ll reach out to you to help you figure out... Read More »

Kinda nice to have a little easier of an assignment, eh? 🙂 Thank you, everyone, for your submissions. We’ll look forward to hearing what Ben decides to use (or not use), and then I’ll go over them myself on the November 12 critique webinar!... Read More »

Reply To: VersePic: Thanksgiving Background

@elmullet, yes, I am most easily able to critique the photos that are submitted as JPG here on the forum; however, I usually reference their “original or RAW” counterparts submitted via the link in the details so I can better know how to critique the... Read More »

Yesterday the computer wasn’t working, so here is my last pictures now. The fall pictures I shot vertical and horizontal. Since the verse is about praying and bringing our request to God, I asked my little brother to illustrate it! BTW, he was amazing!... Read More »

That did’t work quite right so I’ll try again and add a few more photos. These photos illustrate praying. We can ask for whatever we need from the creator and owner of everything through the avenue of prayer. Why should we be worried or “careful” for anything? Through reading the Bible and...
