Artificial light – Brashley Photography

Although I have been doing photography for many years I have only just started learning about more than just auto mode and also photoshop. I am always amazed at how creative photos can actually get. It’s like getting a degree as I have been reading and watching you tube videos none stop since mid January trying to learn and create.. I have to reread and re watch often for it to finally sink in. The other day I asked Bren how she gets such amazing light and she created a lesson for me on Lightroom. I have lightroom but must master photoshop first so tweeked her help to guide me in Photoshop..Β  Go across to her wordpress site.. click here

This is my effort with a before and after shot from a walk in the forest yesterday at lunchtime.. πŸ˜‰ I used aperture mode to focus on the mushroom and have the background slightly blurred πŸ˜‰

    1. Thanks Cee.. πŸ˜‰

    1. No problem, You deserve it..

    1. Isn’t it just..

  1. It’s interesting to see how much different camera setting affect the pictures. The two pictures have a very different vibe.

    1. Yes, what I can’t get used to is the RAW setting that is so dull and has to be tweeked to normality and more as you can see.. πŸ˜‰

    1. It is a tiny weeny bit time consuming.. better not start.. πŸ˜‰

  2. Editing is lots of fun. You gave this an artistic look!! Nice!

    1. Thank YOU.. yes enjoying it..

  3. I’m impressed that your learning all this. I would love to be a better photographer, but it takes some effort. My pictures always end up with a dog pooping in the background or something.

    1. It is but I am enjoying it.. and with this stupid virus I will probably be laid off work on Monday so will have plenty of time for learning.. πŸ˜‰

      1. Maybe you can become a professional photographer. My library is closed to the public, but we – the library ladies – are still going in to do busy work and clean stuff. Don’t know how long that will last though as there’s only so much to do.

        1. crazy times in a crazy world.. πŸ˜‰

    1. You sometimes have to turn left or right off the path.. πŸ˜‰

  4. You might want to stick with Lightroom, its much easier to use and does almost everything Photoshop does in a simpler way. I use both but its not really necessary and I took several courses at a local college then spent many years learning it on my own.

    1. Maybe I have time now to look at lightroom.. πŸ˜‰

  5. Great shots, Lisa. I’m more a point and shoot whilst hoping for the best kind of photographer. ☺️
