Fast lenses are great, by the way.
So, saw a link to DxO OpticsPro 9 Elite. They are apparently a promotion right now at http://www.dxo.com/us/digitalcamerauk where you can get it for free. So I decided to try it.
When I moved to where I live now, this was one of the first abandoned places I found. I took the camera a friend had given me and photographed it. I barely knew anything about such things back then. And I especially didn’t know about editing. (still learning on both accounts)
Another day, another adventure! This trip found me and the lady at Presque Isle State Park, one of our favorite locations, regardless of the season. It’s a beautiful peninsula on Lake Erie, and you’ll be seeing a lot of it if you watch my posts. Of course, I’ll have my Hero+ in tow!
This is my first attempt to do light painting and photoshop compositing. It's a fun technique. Feedback is welcome. I'd like to learn more about this and also compositing techniques in general.
I took a little bit of time the other day to go outside and experiment around with the new lens (Nikkor 35mm f/1.8) and settings on my D3100. A lot of the shots were done with a quick shutter speed and open aperture.
