"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

High-Key Landscapes.

The following two images is a combination of intentionally overexposing the image, then taking the image into Photoshop for a touch levels/curves to brighten the scene and help to remove any existing gray in the background.

My son and I went out for a day of shooting around the ponds at the Clemson Sandhill Research and Education Center located in the Columbia area of South Carolina.
It certainly was the cloudy day I had been looking for, … but a bit on the wicked side.
Light gray skies, quickly turning to a very dark gray, … back to light gray then to dark gray again with some wind and rain, … then a touch of sunlight and quickly back to dark gray.
It was enough to keep the photographic mind busy!
Because of the existing conditions, I decided to abandon the up close abstracts I was searching for and to concentrate on some small high-key landscapes in and around the pond.

Maybe not everyone’s taste, … but I enjoy creating them.
Give it a try sometime!
