Find beauty not only in the thing itself

but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.

    • I think spraying water is a great idea, I really would like to give a try. The water drops (on the branches) showing on the photo here are the morning dew. Thank you for visiting, Rusha. Happy Friday:)

    • The bw shots that you like so far are all macro shots; I’d give credit to my new lens. πŸ™‚ For a quick process for b&w, I go to the google photo, others I used the Lightroom and I like to add the vignette. Hope that answered your questions. Thank you for liking them, Perpetua.

  1. Amy – this is one of those posts that really had me in a different mood with each photo. They all fit into a tight post, but each picture is soooooo different I found it really cool to compare and contrast and then just enjoy. Each one is so cool – and so perfect for Halloween too – ha!

  2. Amy, these are absolutely stunning especially the first photo…wow! Do you shoot in black and white or color and then apply a filter? Just gorgeous. I am not good at black and white photography but love it and want to learn how. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you for your compliment, Nicole. The lens picked up all the details, so it was easy to convert into B&W. I used the Lightroom for these three. I also like to use the Google photo, it has B&W feature to choose, take only click to convert.

      • Well that photo is purely delightful. I use lightroom too but haven’t tried using it to convert photos to black and white. Instead I’ve used Snapseed but I’m going to try it in lightroom. Have to get the right shots first however that will convert nicely.
