Slightly Inspired.

Posting Sunday and some general perusing of other photographer pages that I follow inspired me to look back to some of the photos I've stashed over the summer. Even with multiple folders full of pictures I only found two that I felt like editing. I've been feeling real sub-par with my photoshop skills lately. I tend to set my standards for myself too high, and when I (not so) surprisingly don't reach them I get angry at myself, which has led to a rather low desire to do any post processing.

But here are two photos from a fishing trip my family took to Crystal Lake. The first one I tried various techniques but the fish just didn't want to color properly, so then I tried black and white and was rather pleased with the results. The second image I took while the boat was in motion, trying to get a blur effect from the waves. Overall the picture itself and the editing I feel are rather meh, but that picture wasn't exactly cooperating with me either.

[All hail the might perch...]

I also need a new blog layout so I can increase the size of my pictures. These wee little pictures just aren't cutting it.
Who knew trying to keep up this photography blog could be so frustrating.

Still Alive


I'm still alive. I still own a camera. I still use it.

No excuses for the lack of posts. Life is just life and apparently I'm not very good at regularly taking, editing and posting pictures.

But this was a nice picture of Lake Michigan from my camping trip this past weekend. Took it with my 55-200mm lens which now has a polarizing filter.
