It seems as though life in general has taken control over my “free time” causing the timing of my weekly blogs to be a little off this month. And, now that it’s the end of the month I’ve found myself in a little bit of a quandary…….which theme do I leave out to get me back on track? Then, it occurred to me what better way to accomplish everything I wanted to share than by combining two (2) themes into one (1) blog……..or, two in one!
So, here it goes……….I hope you enjoy both!
“THE MAGIC LANTERN – MULTI-EXPOSURE”
This month’s photo tip is multi-exposure photography. It’s not the kind that you do in post production, but in the camera. I stumbled on this when I was catching up on my DPS (Digital Photography School) weekly updates this weekend. Not all DSLR cameras have this function, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover that my Canon 6D does.
Multi-exposure is a fun way of composing two (2) photos into one (1). Basically, your first shot will be your background and your second shot will be your foreground or focal image. Here are a few shots I took last weekend:
The yellow daisy in the bird bath is my favorite.
This was a fun technique and one I plan to work with it more often. If you would like to learn more, here is the link to the Digital Photography School article: Digital Photography School – In Camera Double Exposure
“For the Love of Photography”
Spring is one of my favorite times of the year, and there certainly have been several signs that it has arrived:
Colorful flowers are in bloom……………………..
Birds are migrating South…………………….
And, the number one sign that Spring is in the air………..POLLEN! Yes, that yellow, thin haze floating through the Atlanta skyline is pollen!
While I enjoy the warmer weather and how nature has come back to life, the pollen can be challenging at times. Oh well, I guess it’s the price you pay for living in such a beautiful area of the country!
