As you can tell I’ve been spending time doing some of these macro focus stacking projects. It’s a weird thing and much less fun than just taking photos. But it does allow me to make images that would be impossible otherwise. But it’s fussy and time consuming. I’ll be doing some flower shots soon and I’ll see what else I can think of.
Camera Girl has abandoned me today to learn how to paint pictures. She left my lunch in the microwave. I will have to feed the dogs and push the button on the microwave and talk to myself for several hours. I told her this was a dereliction of her wifely duties. She narrowed one of her eyes and I think she was thinking bad things about me. Luckily I think she lacks psychokinetic powers. Unluckily she makes my food so you never know.
Camera Girl has become a voracious reader of fiction. It’s mostly crime novels but recently she read a book that was recommended by a friend. Based on the quality of that book she picked up another one by the same author. Yesterday she told me that the plot of the book involved a black maternity nurse who gets involved in the death of an infant whose father is a white supremacist. He even has swastika tattoos on his head. Apparently, in the story the hospital is punishing the nurse out of consideration for the influence of the swastika guy. I told Camera Girl I thought this was quite a stretch of the imagination. “How many white supremacists are out there who have the local district attorney prosecuting black nurses? I’m thinking the number is slightly lower than one.”
I tried to browbeat her into abandoning her book but she never drops a book until she finishes it, no matter how bad it is. Well, this prompted me to remind her why I don’t bother to watch most television and movies that have a Leftist slant. She rolled her eyes and nodded. I told her I’ll have to find a Dissident Right author for her to read as penance for the indignity I suffered through knowing she was reading this piffle and she made a disparaging noise that was sort of a guffaw mixed with a cough. Women!
Anyway, I’ll have some stuff up later and we’ll see how the day goes. It looks nice out so I’ll be at play in the Gardens of the Lord. Enjoy your day.
Post Processing… save it for a rainy day. This is why I have tens of thousand of photos I’ve yet to even look at. Such a daunting task I would rather clean the windows for HoneyDo. OK, maybe you caught me in a lie, but it is like doing English homework. As I sit here uploading 322 new photos from my granddaughter’s dance recital, which none will meet the rigid review from her mom, I think of the hours of color adjustment/cropping/removing the many heads that were in the way/all times 300. Never take photos of people. I guess I… Read more »
Tell me about it! I’m in the high hundreds of thousands by now but I’ve got to process a photo per day so I’m forced to do a few every week. One thing that helps is a function in the post-processing software that allows me to use the same settings for a bunch of shots that were taken under the same conditions.
I have a plan to go back and delete 85% of the shots I’ve taken. But it takes a lot of perseverance which I may not possess. Time will tell.
