Our fun in the sun and surf...
We came to this same beach last year at this time. My camera was brand new and every photo I took was a delight. This time around was just as fun playing with my new polarizer. It's the "magic" that helps me photograph those oh so blue skies and takes the harsh reflections off the water. I notice now that some of the blue in these photos is a tad dark. Oh well... I'm learning.
I also tweaked a few of these photos in Bibble (I don't use any fancy expensive software) clicking the [Perfectly Clear] button which boosts the contrast and some other stuff I don't know about.
Taking these photos, viewing them (deleting over 300) and sharing them here makes me happy. Or perhaps it was just being at the ocean that made me so happy. Who cares the reason. Photography makes me happy. Period.
Now if someone could just help me with the printing end of photography, ie: getting photos developed that look like they do on my monitor, I'd be deliriously happy. This has been my creative frustration for the last 9 months (I guess we're only allowed so much happiness at one time). If anyone has solid, non-confusing advice I'd love to hear it.
