Confessions of a Bad Photographer

True confession time.  I take terrible pictures.  If you have been following my blog you already know that I am not the best photographer. I really wish I were a better “picture taker”. I know what good photography looks like or more importantly, how I feel when I look at good work. I would recommend a young photographer, named Chance if you want to see the area I live in through artistic eyes. He makes east Texas look like a little slice of heaven. This kid is good and he is 20 years old! He posts his work on a Facebook page- Photos by Chance. He has a great camera now, but some of his amazing pictures were taken with his phone so equipment can’t be my excuse. I recommend the Lost Lake pictures.  I have been looking at some photo editing apps for my Ipad.  I don’t take many pictures with the Ipad because it is a pain to get them into the blog, but I figure if I am going to keep blogging, I better make what I do look as good as possible. Here are a few photos I snagged from Facebook today while waiting for my dad to get out of surgery.  ( He is fine!) I have included before and after shots using the Ipad Apps.  They are still not amazing pictures, but the cleaned up versions look a little better.

Before- There is too much clutter.

Now the focus is on The Southern Belle and Maeby.
 She is too cute for a before picture to look bad, so it is just the after photo.
The ugly breaker box and satellite dish doesn’t look too bad when the focus is on the azaleas.
Once again, I tried to make the picture more about the main thing and less about the background.

I still want a new camera, but I will work on having better photos in the blog. Thank you for reading. I appreciate hearing that you read what I write and like it.
