I have been spending some time at the lake, I just haven’t been writing and uploading the pictures. I really do appreciate the time it takes to keep current on websites, especially because I look at a few and I do enjoy seeing new photos.
I have made the effort to go by the lake even though it is extremely hot. I get this feeling that I will miss something if I don’t go but the funny thing is that if I don’t go how will I know if I missed something. It’s like a puzzle. What to do? I usually go because you aren’t going to get anything sitting inside even if it is air conditioned. 🙂
Something I have to share is that I have started using Photoshop, thanks to Robert. It has made a difference and now I see what everyone meant when they told me that it would take some photos up a notch or two. For as long as I have been taking photos (almost 10 years) I had only cropped an occasional photo. I mostly try to use natural lighting and frame the scene as I’m taking the photo because the final product would pretty much be what came out of the camera. I’m glad I came to Photoshop later than earlier because I feel that it made me more disciplined with what I capture. Sure, I’ve missed quite a few shots because of this but I’m okay with that.
It may be hot in August but the birds still need to be out and about. Here are some photos over 4 days in early August.
