Another March of the Butterflies

by @ Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008. Filed under Birds & Butterflies

While trying to organize my photos a bit, I found some butterfly photos I took the end of last summer and never posted. So here are a few of my favorites.

Background Effect

by @ Friday, September 2nd, 2005. Filed under Birds & Butterflies

Here’s an example of an effect applied only to the background: The background effect is the Photoshop’s Glowing Edges. You can see I didn’t get the antennae captured with the lasso, so they’re glowing. Very psychedelic. It’s fun playing with this kind of effect, and it’s something I think I’ll keep working at. You never […]

Humming Birds

Last summer humming birds regularly visited the feeder mom put out, but up to this point we hadn’t had any sightings this year. I commented that to mom while we were out by the pool, and shortly thereafter not just one, but two hummers appeared at the feeder. It was getting into the evening so […]

Jim kindly shared the secret of the photoshop script he uses to create the frame around his photos, Mike’s Framing Scripts. We both use the free (basic) version at the moment. It’s easy to use, and has more options than I’ve even tried to figure out at this point. But I think it adds some […]

by @ Thursday, September 1st, 2005. Filed under Birds & Butterflies

It’s been a while since I’ve gotten to posting, largely because of school starting. There’s always a rush to get back into the swing of things, but life should start to settle down in the next few weeks. Anyway, it was a nice morning, so I toted my camera outside to try again to get […]
