Flower Power

Today, for my picture a day assignment, I went back and looked at some pictures we took when we were in downtown Charlotte, and decided to process one of my flower pictures.

I took this picture with my new 50mm 1.8 lens and believe or not, I did not have the aperture set at 1.8.  I set it 2.5.  When I first got the lens I shot everything at 1.8 and soon realized that was not the way to go.

The first picture is straight out of the camera with the exposure bumped up a little.  The second is the same picture, converted to black and white and bumped up the yellows a little.  Then I used the Soulful B&W tints Action, Warm Mist to add a little tint to it.

Hope you enjoy…

  1. Hi Lisa, you asked what template I used for a montage on my blog and it is from Big Huge Labs, I used their mosaic placing a larger photo in the centre then surrounding it with smaller ones. Let me know if you can’t find it.
