Week 52 – Judy

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Fire Eyes

We had a campfire going and our neighboring camper came over with a pine cone she had treated with some chemical to make the fire turn blue…very cool! I think the blue flames look like Cat Woman’s mask…for those old timers who remember that TV character.

Taken with my Olympus TG4. Just did some cropping.

Looking forward to the 6th year of No Wimpy Girls Photography. It’s been a fun five years so far!

Just Chilling

Just chilling until our next 52 week project starts up again.  Hard to believe our 5th season went by so quickly.  Looking forward to our 6th season.

You guessed it another spider.  This one was hard to see due to it being white.  It looked like it was just chilling waiting for an unsuspecting prey 🙂

Shot with my NikonD300s and 105mm lens. Not much editing.  Basically square cropped and boost the contrast.  Settings were iso400, f6.3 , 1/60sec, and aperture priority

Tiny Fly on Duckweed

Wow! NWG’s…. 52 weeks of photos for 5 years! Quite an accomplishment! 🙂 I have enjoyed our year and hope to have many more! Keeps the shutter clicking regularly! 😉 ❤

I cannot ID this little fly and was lucky to get him in focus. It was a very blustery day in our area.

Used a Canon 6D and a Canon 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS. Settings were 1/100s, f/4.0 and ISO 100.

Week 51 – Robin

tilapia_gang

My husband is experimenting raising tilapia and these are the young ones in a fish tank. They always gang up in the corner of the tank begging to be fed when you come out. I think it’s pretty funny so I decided to try and capture it.

6D and 70-300 f/4-5.6L. Settings were 1/250s, f/5.6, ISO 1250.

Sunset Dipytch

I am always amazed how quick the sky changes colors during a sunset.  So beautiful.  Both shots were taking with my IPhone while on a walk with my son.  The colors changed within minutes.  Breathtaking.  The only editing I did was crop them both so they fit on the canvas.  You can see the moon in both 🙂

Bird on a Wire

My husband spotted this cute Great Crested Flycatcher on the phone wires by our house, so, of course, I had to snap a shot. The next frame in my camera is of an empty wire  :-).

My settings were ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/3200 sec at 300mm (70-300mm).

Giraffe Lashes

I always enjoy our NWG outings.  As mentioned by my NWG girls we went to our local zoo to photograph the animals sprinkled with a lot of talking and laughing.  Followed by a wonderful lunch with more talking and laughing.  We really need to get together more often.  One of the giraffe came over to feed on a leaf so I took the opportunity to get a few shots off.  I was using only my 105mm lens on my Nikon D300s.  I cropped it a little followed by boosting the contrast using Topaz BW and a bit of sharpening.  It is always so cool to see what we all post after one of these outings.  My settings: iso400, f4 and 1/125sec.

Happy New Year!

Lashes!

As Robin mentioned, the NWG’s went to the Zoo. I didn’t make note of what kind of bird this was, but what gorgeous eyelashes it has! Another great day with the NWG’s!

My settings were ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/40 sec, at 269mm (70-300mm).  Changed white balance to shade in Camera Raw to give it more of a warm coloring and  then applied Topaz’s Adjust 5’s Pop Photo filter.

 

Week 50 – Robin

cotton_top_tamarin

The NWG’s got together at Brevard Zoo and had a fun morning shooting the beautiful animals! 🙂

Used 7DMII and a 70-200 f/2.8 L. Settings were 1/250s, f/2.8, ISO 400. It wasn’t easy shooting dappled light through a cage.

Played with the shadow and highlight in Photoshop to help bring out the dark face and brown fur.
