I was in the right place at the right time to quickly capture this beautiful dragonfly as it paused on a cone flower.
In this one I also had the foreground flowers move with the bee. I like the effect it gives.
I wish the quality was a little better, but since I am working with a GIF, I can’t expect much. It’s still fun though!
I first saw this technique of blending a still photo and video sometime last year from Jamie Beck & Kevin Burg (see their amazing work HERE).
I was mesmerized.
For some reason I didn’t think I’d be able to create one. I probably didn’t really feel like sitting down and learning about it.
Today I did!
Last night as I laid in bed, I was trying to figure out what I would shoot as my subject. I decided that a bee on a flower would be great for a first time go at it. I took several videos and if I have time later I may post a few more for fun.
So what do you think of it? I’d like to learn how to easily adjust the colors.. this is straight from the camera.
Thanks for looking!
We had a nice visit at the Botanical Gardens this morning. The flowers are just gorgeous and I decided it would be a good day to bring my camera and take some pictures of the boys. I feel like summer is literally flying by and I’ve missed so many opportunities to take pictures. I’m always taking pictures with my phone, but it’s just not the same. The sun was a little higher than I would have liked, so it was hard to get some shots because of the harsh light. But I’m happy with how these turned out. I used my Nikon D5000 and 5omm f/1.8 lens.
I have some stories and more pictures to share. But I have to admit I haven’t been the best at posting for the past few months.
I’ll have to work on that. Thanks for stopping by.. and check back soon. There will be more, I promise. 🙂
Spring has sprung in my yard. Everything seems to want to bloom at once.. which is okay with me! I decided to venture outside to capture some pretty flower pictures. All of these images were taken using my 50mm Prime Lens.
And here’s the back garden in bloom. My Eastern Red Bud is the focal point at the moment. This tree is just wonderful!
