This morning I shot shades of a chair from four different positions and in Photoshop I created five different blends (‘HDR-mergers’) and processed these individually with different brightness, detailing, coloring, gamma, etc.
Just for the sheer fun of it.
All thumbnails but is you click on it they enlarge.
This portrait is dedicated to a ‘lawyer’ in Holland who makes astonishing portraits of people; just for the sheer fun of it. Suspect (! 🙂 ) that for many pictures he’s using his gorgeous secretaries as model! And ‘Ooggetuige’ blogs them. Enjoy his pictures here (opens new window).
THE Hairdresser in our village is Belinda and she is not only a pleasant personality. Belinda is determined to make something special of your hair and she really likes it. No village gossip but just fun and in the meantime focussed. Stanford can be proud of its ‘Hair by Belinda’ and Belinda takes pride in her ‘pieces of hair art’! Not much art in my hair but since Belinda is taking care for it every two months I’m more aware of my ‘upholstering’. Anyway sometime ago we made a deal that I would photograph her while busy with my topping.
So I sat there with my camera in hand in front of the mirror; the lens adjusted to wide angle (16mm)l just to make sure not to miss anything.
All reflections are cropped and processed to B&W. Still have to work on details though.
This week we enjoyed virtually every day, with camera in hand, a different sunset at different locations in and around our village. Just for the sheer fun I tell you that Stanford is THE Sunset Capital (Sundowner Capital if you prefer) of South Africa 🙂 . Here last night’s sundowner at the Blue Moon community just outside the village. Quite a few pictures; just click the thumbnails to enlarge.
