A blog containing photographs, ideas, discussion and image manipulation tutorials from incurable hippie, a disabled photographer in the north of England. All this, plus inspiration from others' photographic work, and technical aspects of photography.

So, so wrong

in so many different ways...

Impossible Babe of the Day.

Do we go with the political? Having a 'babe of the day' at all?
The technical? That photoshopping is appalling - her back would break and her shadow actually has a stomach.
Back to the political? What on earth are we telling women and girls about how they should look?
Back to the technical? What the hell happened?

Very excitingly, I got a macro lens (Nikon 60Mm F2.8D Af Micro Nikkor Lens), and have since been photographing anything and everything with it.

Yesterday I was waiting for a bus and spotted some woods over the road (I do love Sheffield, to be in a big city and just randomly come across some woods), so I went in and got a million leaf, flower, tree bark photos with the macro lens. There are still more to upload!


The top photo is a dead leaf hanging from a tree branch. I love the clarity of the leaf's shapes and patterns, and the fab bokeh. The second of these photos is another dead leaf, with a fly and its shadow clearly visible. Again I like the bokeh, and the detail of the fly and the veins of the leaf.

Same Photo, Different Treatments

I started with this image:
Ringinglow 079

and followed two different tutorials on it, both already tried and tested on this blog.

Firstly, it got the lomo treatment, the second of the two I tried.

Then I gave it the Orton treatment, which is my favourite of the two experiments.
