This account is established by Vince Lewis married, father of seven children and grandfather of eight. Totally enjoy travel and seeing God in His wonderful creation. Long-time participant in the Institute of Basic Life Principles and the Advanced Training Institute. As a family, we enjoy travel in our Motorhome and attending ATI events whenever and wherever we can. Have enjoyed photography since buying my first camera - Nikon SLR. But, I've almost always shot auto and am anxious to learn how to really shoot quality pictures and videos. Now own a Sony a6300 mirrorless camera.
Nice! You might try bumping up the contrast a bit. Play with it and see what you get. Otherwise, I really like it. The creek is at a natural angle across the screen (not a perfect diagonal). The little island in the middle of the stream adds interest drawing my eyes there first. Good job!
Very nicely done!
At first glance, I noticed the head is cut off in the center photo of the collage.
Pricing is the only place I see room for improvement. It’s a little unclear possibly leaving you on the hook for erroneous customer expectations. Give examples and not firm prices. You might consider these for starters:

It appears the depth of field is unevenly distributed on the right branch. The top is in focus, but the majority, lower part is out of focus. I believe the f/2.8 appeture is creating a very shallow depth of field and the two branches are very close to each other. This makes the right branch look like it’s on the same plane but “blurred” rather…[Read more]
Dan, In my opinion, you version really “pops”. The greens in the lower field are there, the shadow on the lower right is more well defined and the mountain peaks are more colorful and sharp at tacks. I think we could all learn from your telling us how you did all that.
I recently returned from a missions trip to Ghana and Nigeria. While I regrettably had to pass up thousands of incredible photo ops, I have included just three which I find interesting. All were shot with a Sony A6300 mirrorless camera in aperture priority.
Sunset – 23mm, -1 ev, f4.5, 1/15 sec, ISO 100, horizon leveled, JPEG
Boy standing – 16mm,…[Read more]
After viewing the teaching video on how to organize your photos, I am left with a few questions.
1. Do you save all the photos you take? If not, when do you clean them out?
2. Do you store all of you photos in LR?
3. Why not backup your photos on the cloud like Apple does automatically for all photos? (Or does LR already do this?) This seems to…[Read more]
My wife and I along with three of our seven children are currently in our motorhome touring 16 states in the Western half of the US. What an adventure! We rode the aerial tram in Jackson Hole WY, viewed the splendor of the Grand Tetons, marveled at the the Snake and Columbia Rivers in WA, had our breath taken away by the incredible Oregon coast…[Read more]
I also use a 4T backup hard drive and manually back up everything about once a month. That drive I keep in a safe. Call me a fanatic, but I have a Carbonite backup plan that backs up the entire computer once a day. My entire life is recorded on this computer, legal documents, taxes, my life’s collections of photos, etc. I just can’t afford to lose it.
I certainly don’t speak on behalf of anyone else on this site, but in Christian love I suggest this is not the kind of subject matter for this site. I suspect that you, like most of us, enjoy the wonders of God’s people and his marvelous creation. Your use of composition and color suggest you have quite a bit of talent in these areas. Turn these…[Read more]
I’m an Apple user. Here is their really simple solution. When you buy a MacBook, you automatically get 50G of free storage on the Cloud. I purchased 200G for a mere $2.99 per month. MacBooks come with a built in app called Time Machine that automatically backs up all your files every 24 hours. I have 24,000 photos on the Cloud and haven’t even…[Read more]
With all the emphasis on the the “golden hour” of photography, I wonder if there isn’t a filter that produces the same effect by cutting out the same frequency of the sun’s light as the earth’s atmosphere. It sounds too simple to be true. Imagine, no more early risings or late nights waiting for that perfect, warm light. It would be so simple to…[Read more]
Keep in mind that external hard drives are considered a long-term risk. All hard drives deteriorate over time. More importantly, having all you pictures in one location (laptop and external hard drive both in your home) adds to the risk. Today’s smart storage is on the cloud. For a few bucks a month, you can purchase gigabytes of storage through…[Read more]
I wouldn’t begin to make a comparison since both are extremely robust with lots of capabilities, which are well beyond my level of understanding. With so many Photoshop advocates, it is hard to find objective research. However, the following site makes perhaps the most objective assessment (Photoshop PRO vs Affinity) that I have found to date,…[Read more]
