Feel free to use for both commercial and personal use.  If you use it on the web, feel free to leave (pun fully intended) a link in the comment so I can see how it was used. It’s not necessary but I love seeing how my work was used. Enjoy.

Photography Edit Using Gimp

I have a Nikon D5000, my LG Leon phone camera, and my Samsung Stratosphere II phone camera. Of all three of these devices, I love the camera on the Samsung Stratosphere II. It has multiple filters that can be used as you take the image, like the autumn setting used in this image. There is an adjustment for exposure value which allows you to adjust light and multiple other settings to play with as well.

I bought my LG Leon about 3 months ago, and still keep my Stratosphere II either in my glove box of the car or in my computer bag to have handy for test shots or just a quick camera to grab to snap a couple quick images. I know longer have phone service on it, but just keep it around as a spare camera.

Combine this camera with the power of Gimp photo editing software and you can come up with some incredibly beautiful photos. This photo was edited, using Gimp. I did a quick contrast adjustment, ran it through the oilify filter, then the canvas filter and done!

If you’ve never used Gimp, I highly recommend this open source alternative to Photoshop. http://www.gimp.org/

Tsū graphic for website or blog.

I found a new social network that I really like. I’ll post more about that in another post. I wanted a graphic button to let people know they could follow me there, and I couldn’t find any so I made one. Feel free to use. Link back not necessary but always appreciated. Gracias!

Time To Freshen Things Up For Spring

Freshening things up a bit for spring ! Finally spring has sprung in Western New York. After a really harsh winter, the sun is out, the temperature is on the rise, and spring flowers have begun to bloom everywhere you look. The weather got me in the mood to freshen up the blog a bit.

One of the things I love about using a wordpress blog is how easy it can be to give your blog a quick make-over. The header was from last springs design, the rss feed button with flower blooms was already in my media folder, and I updated a new background from some stock background I downloaded awhile ago that I thought matched the header image I created last spring. After about 15 minutes of work the blog has a nice springtime face lift !

Now I just need to start posting here regularly again.
