Keeping active…

In a previous post, I mentioned that I was out shooting with a Lensbaby Control Freak, and that I would post up after I edit.  Well, in the mean time, I had some computer issues that I documented.  Long story short, I finally got around to reviewing and editing the images.  Well, in my perfectionist mind, I wasn’t too impressed with any of the Lensbaby shots.  That’s encouraging though as it is motivating me to get back out there and practice more with that lens!  I really enjoy playing with depth of field, and that lens is simply amazing with how you can play with that…

The session did turn out an image that I thoroughly enjoyed.  A simple image, but I had a lot of fun in post.  I do use many Topaz Labs plugins, and I am going to be off to a training webinar for that here shortly.  I like the flexibility and power these plugins offer, as well as the exciting options they help to open up.

I also got out and shot some video this afternoon.  I haven’t done much with DSLR video, but have had a creative interest in it for quite a long time…  It was one of the reasons why I bought the Canon 7D to begin with.  While it is an older body by this time, it is still an extremely powerful creative tool.  I think the only concern I have about video right now is: 1) Getting out there and practicing by finding interesting subject matter, and 2) A sickly computer that is having issues with processor intensive tasks right now.  I have been finding excuses as to why I can’t do things (IE: I need this gear, that lens, more blah blah blah…), but with trying to stick with the ‘DO MORE’ motto, I will do the best with what I’ve got.

I hope that you enjoy the image and the blog so far!  Please share if you do!
