My Best Photos Of 2018

2018 is coming to an end. I thought I take a look at the best photos that I had ever taken/made. I hope 2019 can provide me with photo ops and I hope that I can make some awesome renders, maybe even learn some new methods. I am always open to that.

A photo of a yellow flower that I took. I edited it to make it crisper. I have been obsessed with this photo since the day I took it. I even printed it and hung it on the wall.
I saw a nice Hibiscus flower on the side drive. I was amazed that I got to photograph this lovely flower. I thought they were native in tropical areas. 
I got a chance to pass through the lakefront back in October. The nice blue, clear water makes the photo so much better.
If you’re in the Chicago area, you need to visit the lake front. It’s the most breathtaking thing I have ever seen.

Now I am going to show you some of my best renders.

I made this render for one of my favorite game developers. I LOVE Undertale and I am so happy to be making Undertale renders. 
Frisk’s skin isn’t shinny in this one but I am proud of it. Don’t let Flowey’s smile trick you.
I think this model of Chara is cute. I feel Halloween fits Chara based on how people see her. Yes, Chara is a girl to me.
If you have played Life Is Strange, you will know about Kate Marsh. She has dealt with bullying after a video of her at a party surfaced all over the internet. 
I am all for gay ships. I enjoy Pricefield so much. If you choose to save the bay and side with Chloe most of the game, the 2 will share a kiss before Max goes back in time.

That’s all the photos that I have. I am also going to make an eBook with some of my best photos of all time, with annotations on how I feel about the photo, why I took it etc. It will be for sale. it all depends on how well the eBook I am currently working on does.

I hope 2018 treated everyone well. If not, I hope 2019 treats you well.

Menard’s Greenhouse Flowers

My folks went to Menard’s early this spring, and we went into the little greenhouse or whatever you call it, I decided to get some photos of the greenhouse flowers. This was back in April or May. I don’t remember the exact time. These photos are up on my Facebook Page. However, you have to look through my photos. They will be on my Instagram at some point. I also have a new Twitter for my work, give it a follow if you wanna.

Pink is one of my favorite colors. These flowers are so pretty, remember, this was taken back in the spring. I’m so sad the summer is over. I’m gonna miss taking flower, dusk, cloud photos. It’s just not as beautiful in the late spring/summer. See you again in May 2019.

I guess having folks that are slow shoppers has its advantages. I got to take this photos while my folks take their sweet time. My mom eventually picked that I was into photography. She had nothing bad to say about it. My mom has always insulted my interests when I was a kid/teen.

Purple flowers? Purple is my favorite color! I really wish I can buy some flowers, to keep on the porch to glam it up, kinda sucks when you want some things but no money for them. Maybe this will change soon.

I think I took the same photo again, whoops. I get a little carried away when I see things worth taking a photo of.

This got me vibes that I was in a rain forest of some sort.  I hope 2019 provides me with photo ops just like 2018 did. In a few months, you will see snow photos. So I am trying to do this as much as I can.

Menard's green house

Again I got carried away. Or I think I revised this photo to add my watermark.

Editing Your Photos Makes a huge quality difference

I didn’t know this, but editing your photos makes them look so much better. I am going to show you the difference between an edited photo and a non-edited photo.

Photographers, you can make your photos even better if you edit them. I thought that was wrong to do this, but a YouTuber I follow, who is doing a photography course, her tutor told her editing your photos is good. It makes the quality 2x better! And makes the photo stand out. It makes the photo clearer.

Edited Photo

edited version flower

The flower is more yellow, the photo is cleaner and the quality is so much better.

Non-Edited Photo

Yellow Flower Close Up

Now see how the edited photo is crisper, the flower is more yellow, and it stands out a bit? I took this using a cell phone, but because I edited the photo, it looks like it was shot on a 300 dollar camera! I used Canva to edit this photo. You can Google some photo editing apps. I suggest Canva. It’s for computer, they have a mobile app, however, you have fewer options.

Lightroom is the best if you’re on a phone ( not sure if IOS had Lightroom since I use Android)

I am a beginner photographer, but I wanna share what I learn from other people. But lots of photographers make the mistake of not editing their photos. Check out my store if you’re interested. I will post my art and photography here. I hope you will like it.
