More progress…. its getting there, slowly.I still think the main tree looks more like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree than the tree in the original photo. And I added some random trees to the background that aren’t really in the original photo as well, bit the pine trees are rather difficult to recreate, so I placed in some oak-y looking ones instead.
I can’t even tell you how many hours I’ve been working on this. I’ve lost count, but its getting up there in the high single digits at this point.
The picture I used for reference is Gele by =jjuuhhaa on deviantArt
he’s also on Flickr. Stop by and say hello!
Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! I had a quiet night at home with The Boy, and the katzen. It was a much needed rest.
Got out and about with my Lensbaby this past week. I haven’t dusted that little guy off in a while, and thought it was about time I started using it again. I forgot how fun it was.
Here’s one of the shots I got with my LB, and theres a few more over in my Flickr gallery. Hopefully I’ll get some more up soon, but first I have to go develop some film.
😀 I love the bright orange! This is a shot from the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Taken with my Nikon FM, and Nikkor 135mm f2.8, w/ circular polarizer.
side note… Target did it again!! Why do they scan my film upside down and backwards? Is it too much to ask to turn it over the right way? Maybe I’m just being picky… I don’t know. But they seem to process my film the best. Maybe its a sign I should consider a digital SLR. But, I love my little FM, and I’m not giving it up just yet.
I think its time I bought myself a film scanner. Anyone have any suggestions? (something not crazy expensive preferably….)
