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.

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

Dusk Photos Of 2018| Golden Hour Photography

This blog will feature the dusk photos that I have taken thus far. I feel it’s better just to put my specific photos in one blog post.  This blog will have affiliate links, which means I will get a percentage of the earnings when you buy the products. It won’t cost you anything extra. The links will be throughout the blog!

I am into taking dusk photos, I find dusk amazing. This year was a great year for photos. Take a look at my flower photos from this year if you’re interested. Hopefully, everything goes well and I can go down south next month and take some photos since I was going to attend a family reunion. But life decided I don’t deserve to have fun and screwed me over. When one door closes, another one opens.

Taken June 2018

There was a pinkish color in the sky, I think I took this around late June. I don’t quite remember. Kinda sad summer is over, and it’s already getting cooler. Usually, when I live, it doesn’t get cold until December.

It looks even cooler when the sun has set. Take advantage of the golden hour, it’s usually the best time for photos.

Kinda looked like a storm was rolling in. There weren’t a lot of storms this year. My area NEVER gets storms. We get the warnings, our area is the warned area. By the time the storm reaches my area, it’s weakened. It would be nice to get storm clips for my Instagram stories. BTW, follow my Photography IG to see my work. I have a blog with my storm sky photos, Stormy Weather Photos of 2017.

early summer sky no watermark

took this early June. Nice isn’t it? This is all the photos that I have as of now. I will post different categories for my photos. Check out these blog posts if you are interested.

Blog Update, Commissions, Patreon, And More, this blog talks about some changes to my blog, they are not major. I felt it’s best to tell you in one blog post rather than explaining it everytime I blog. When I get more photos, I will post my photography.

Flower Photos Of 2018

Rather than posting my flower pics or any other one by one, I decided to put it all in one blog post, like I did with my Stormy Weather Photos. I will run out of names to call the pictures and don’t wanna get repetitive. I prefer to put certain photos in one blog post.

My neighbor told me these are PMIs

This flower grew around springtime, around May I think. They wilted pretty fast after growing. My neighbor said they were PMI flowers. I Wish I was a flower expert, to know what flower is what. I feel should know they type flowers I am shooting a photo of. Being in Chicago, the weather changes, a lot, it will be warm one day and chilly the next, and maybe PMI flowers can’t survive in temps lower than a certain amount ( like 70 Degrees Fahrenheit) so that’s my guess on why they wilted, it got cold a few times before Memorial Day.

Taken Back In July

This is a photo of a yellow flower that I took back in July, its one of my best photos yet. I was kinda happy with this photo. I even printed it with an App called Freeprints, it’s an app that prints photos for free ( you pay to ship the photo, but it’s $1.99) I did an unboxing and review of the app. I recommend it if you’re a photographer, its always good to have physical copies of your photos.

white flower edit

I got a close up of a flower that grew in the side drive, my grandpa likes to plant flowers, I’d love to do it someday. It’s pretty fun to take pictures of flowers since nature photography is my thing, I also like to take photos of other things, for fun.

hibiscus flowe edit

This is a Hibiscus Flower, I think my grandpa planted this. It’s pretty cool to see this flower. This photo was edited, but I edit my photos to make them look more clear, I talked about this in The Importance Of Editing Your Photos. I first thought to edit your photos was cheating, but then I saw that it makes your pics look more professional.  It can give you amazing results.

hot pink flowers watermark

I went to the dollar store and saw these hot pinkish flowers. I also printed this photo at my local Walgreens, they print photos for 38 cents a photo. Keep in mind the price varies depending on the size you want. I want to hang my photos in my room, if I am gonna be stuck in my hell of a home, may as well make the best of it, by trying to make my own money and decorate my room.

 

Saw this flowers at Mariano’s early this summer, and my mom wanted a photo, as always.  I may post photos of the people I was able to shoot. Having a passion but being too broke to fulfill it is not fun. Not fun at all, I’d love to travel and do more travel photography. I like to travel, I feel free when I travel.

 

 

Some more flowers from the driveaway.

 

I won’t be able to take photos once winter hits, I don’t know a single flower that grows in the winter.

 

The last of the photos for this blog post. If I take anymore before it gets cold, I will make a part 2, but it isn’t likely.

If you would like to buy my work, check out my shop. I also will pin my store photos from my Pinterest account to take you to the photo you may wanna buy.

You can look at my work on my Deviantart profile give it a watch if you like to!

I will post more photos when a gather more, it all depends on when that is. I hope you liked this photos!

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.

camera-2598507_960_720

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.
