Photo of the Week

I love the fact that you can get a good shot of a beautiful flower such as a common blue violet shown here below.  It has a very clean texture upon the violet surface.  One key thing if you are going to get a close up shot, but are shooting from a far distance is to crop.  However, you want to make sure that the subject is clear to see, other wise it is going to come out terrible.  To put it lightly, if an image sucks from the start, post-production will not make it better.  If there is too much blur in an image, eliminate it move to a better looking one if you took multiple shots.  The only exception I find blur to be excellent in is when you move the camera quickly as you shoot neon lights at night.  This would be good because you would end up with streaks of lights, plus well lit areas like NYC’s Time Square offers a lot of light that will not make your image too dark.  If anyone has any suggestions on when blur is good t use let me know in the comment section.  As usual, do not forget to follow and check my website at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/ to see what photos I am selling!

Another Wild Edible

Ah yes another wild edible.  This time on the table is common blue violet.  This flower will grow during the spring and will last until fall.  There are violets that are also yellow.  Common blue violets are commonly found on lawns, parks, and sunny areas where there is some shade.  These flowers are absolutely good in salads and sandwiches, especially if you want to make good grilled cheese sandwich.  Do not forget to check these photos that are available for sale at https://stevenanthony123456.smugmug.com/
