Spring Sun
A patch of a bamboo like grass growing in the sun. This is one of a few photos that are based on Instagram images I have taken. I use Instagram like a sketchbook for photos. If one of the shots I take using my phone and Instagram looks particularly good, I will return to that spot and either recreate the photo using my Canon 40D, or do a variation of the original photo. Shooting into the sun combined with a polarizer filter produced an interesting color contrast, which I boosted slightly in Photoshop. I do not use filters in Photoshop to recreate the effects in Instagram, but a variety of other techniques.
This photo is part of the Landscape series. Here is a listing of all my Collections. Feel free to browse the collections on the right, or the various individual photographs and sets on the left. All photography is available as Greeting Cards, Matted and Framed works, Canvas and Photographic Prints. Please email me for any special requests.
