Macro of a dandelion in the sun. This was taken mid-day with full on sun, so I lowered the overall exposure which resulted in a the black background. The second of a series of plants in black and white I have done. RAW processed in Photoshop CS5, modified to black and white. Overall and selective contrast increased via Photoshop.

This photo is part of my Monochromatic collection on RedBubble, available in print, throw pillows, laptop and phone cases, and tote bags.

Black Sunshine

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/14908964-black-sunshine
Macro of a wild daisy in the sun. This was taken mid-day with full on sun, so I lowered the overall exposure which resulted in the black background. The first of a series of plants in black and white I plan on doing. RAW processed in Photoshop CS5, modified to black and white. Overall and selective contrast increased via Photoshop.

Another Crack in the Wall

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/14904809-another-crack-in-the-wall
 I spent a lot of time keeping an eye out for that real obvious and unique crack in a sidewalk or a wall for a photo challenge I was invited to, but I didn’t happen upon anything that jumped out at me. Since one of the things I love about macro photography is how it reveals hidden details, I decided to take a closer look at some ‘ordinary’ looking cracks  and see what hidden details it had to offer. An up close of a curb in a parking lot, I could see the obvious rust stain around the crack, but also a variety of colors that were very muted, yet interacted in an interesting way. When processing the photo, I ‘pushed’ the colors and contrast up quite a bit (I take my photos in RAW format, and process them in Photoshop CS5), to help reveal the hard to see detail. It’s a lot of fun to see what emerges when you look deep into something simple, and try and share what you are seeing with everyone else.

This photo is part of my Urban Abstract collection on RedBubble, available in print, throw pillows, laptop and phone cases, and tote bags.

Golden Goose

http://www.redbubble.com/people/dlamb/works/10976977-swimming-in-silhouette?c=126746-abstract-from-nature&p=photographic-print
A Canadian Goose (Branta canadensis) swims along in a sun lit pond @ Carl Kohler Park, Horsham PA-US. I used a circular polarized filter to get the full reflection off of the surface of the water, which caught the late afternoon sun nicely. It is part of my Abstract from Nature collection on RedBubble, available in print, throw pillows, laptop and phone cases, and tote bags.
