Week 37 GPlus Project 52
The theme for this week was From the Garden. I took a bunch of different photos of various things and plants in the garden but none of them really popped out at me. So then I screwed my infrared lens on and began shooting again. As I've mentioned in a previous post shooting in IR has it's drawbacks since I'm using a non-converted camera, but on a calm bright day it can work pretty well. Here is a hydrangea plant, normally green with blue flowers, rendered in IR. I'm still trying to find a way to cut down on the redness of the photo that isn't effected so much by the IR.
You can view this, and the rest of my Project 52 photos here.
It should be no surprise that I took some bracket shots of the waterfalls from the other day. I'm not so happy with the HDR shots as I was with the normal shots, which for me is a little strange, but I think the blame goes on me, I rushed the shots. Note to self, and other photographers, don't go to a shoot with someone who's not a photographer, you'll end up feeling rushed even if they're in the car chatting happily on the phone oblivious to your shooting.
Monday, as just about everyone knows, Apple gave a peek at a couple of its updates in the operating systems arena, both mobile and desktop. Most people knew what to expect in the first half, OS X Lion is coming in July. And although I knew what most of the updated stuff was going to be I still found myself wanting to update right then and there. I mean why wouldn't you? It's $30, and I don't have to run down to a store to get it. Actually, I couldn't if I wanted to, but that's another story. But it's the second half of the presentation that was more, interesting, if you're an iOS person.
