Park Benches

Mohawk Park in Brantford, Ontario is a wonderful place for photographs. The park benches covered in snow were of particular interest to me. The two photos here are of some of those benches. The first bench looks down towards Mohawk Lake and the second set of benches are in front of the splash pad area of Mohawk Park.

Sepia Trees

I had mentioned in a previous post that I am having fun creating HDR photographs. Well, I am also having fun creating Sepia photos. Although, not as complex to create as HDR with today’s software programs (although HDR is easier to create now, too), Sepia photos can made some photographs look really quite striking. It can also be more forgiving with what you might consider slight flaws in your colour photograph. Black and White can be like that, too! With many software programs you can also add “fade” and/or “glow” effects to your Sepia photos and “noise” to make the image look old, or just plain cool. Some of the newer digital cameras also come with a Sepia effect already built in. I prefer to take the photos in colour first, then transform them after.

Anyway, there are also some photographs, at least from what I have found, that just scream to be made into Sepia and/or you know would look pretty amazing in Sepia. Below are just a few examples of some of those photographs that I had taken recently at Mohawk Park in Brantford, Ontario. The trees there were such great subjects to snap images of! Like I said, I first took these in colour, then transformed them into what you see below.

Fun with Photos – Making Coloured Photos into Something Else

Just a little demonstration as to what can be done with a coloured photograph using a photo editing program. I used PhotoShop in this case. Of course, if you camera has the capability of changing the colour of the photo as you snap the image, you can use that, too! Mine does, but I usually like to take the photo in colour first, then edit it. The photo demonstrated below is of a Daffodil I found along a bike trail.

Photo of the Day – Wagon Wheel

Wagon Wheel by Corinne Elizabeth Cowherd

Wagon Wheel by Corinne Elizabeth Cowherd

This photograph of an iron wagon wheel was originally taken using the Sepia setting on my camera. I thought I would look really nice with that alone. It did, but it needed something more. So, I aged this photo using several different techniques in PhotoShop and this is the final result. Kind of an old looking photograph, but taken just yesterday.
