Photography Around the House

I, like everybody else in the world, had a lot of time waiting out the #$%$@ virus.   I spent much of that time thinking  about things to photograph

Driving around my neighborhood, I saw flowers I didn't have.   So I marked down houses I wanted to visit.   I also had plants and flowers I wanted to photograph in my own yard. 
I tried using a telephoto lens for close ups using natural light.   I also used a Canon EOS R, Canon 100mm macro lens, and Canon 14-EX-II ring lite for times when a plant or flower was partially in shade.  

One day I was in the back with my Canon EOS R and Tamron 100-400mm lens. 

And two birds showed up.

Both photos post processed in Lightroom and Luminar 4. 

And I worked on some home food and product photos, as well.  I mostly used the Canon 100mm macro lens.

The moon was full in April.  But it was in the wrong place, directly behind me.   So I photographed the moon, then photographed my back yard.   Then, put the moon in my backyard photo with Photoshop.   

From mid-March on, I also went to many webinars sponsored by Photoshelter, Canon, and probably the best from Tamron.   I'm also a Tamron VIP member, so if you have Tamron lenses check out the VIP section to see if you are eligible.   

Until My Next Adventure,

See you on down the road,
