Stopping a shutter down or increasing the speed for a greater depth of field makes the pictures stand out. The color is there. I just try and bring it out. I also make adjustments in my post-processing too to create the maximum effect such as I did with the tulip.
With all of my southern friends boasting about having their gardens already in bloom, I thought I could search for an image of an Easter Lily to show that there still is hope for spring here in Wausau, WI. It is hard for us to even think about Easter when we look outdoors and it still looks like winter.
The hope of Easter comes not in the change of seasons, for we who live in the north country know that seasons do change. In Wisconsin, we have a saying that, if you don’t like the weather, just be patient, it will change. The hope of Easter is in the promise of life made full when the Son of God won victory over death.
For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. 1 Corinthians 15:21-22.
“Oh that my words were written!
Oh that they were inscribed in a book!
24 Oh that with an iron pen and lead
they were engraved in the rock forever!
25 For I know that my Redeemer lives,
and at the last he will stand upon the earth.[b]
26 And after my skin has been thus destroyed,
yet in[c] my flesh I shall see God,
27 whom I shall see for myself”
Job 19: 23-27a
Way back when I was a student at Trinity Lutheran in Wausau, John Kupsky had us do an assignment in his Art Class to draw perspective. Simple perspective means lines converging to a point on the horizon. ERailroad tracks easily lend themselves to this as the two rail tracks converge on each other.
This is a spur line and I am facing south from Bridge Street just east of Walgreen ‘s on Wausau’s west side. These tracks feed into the Graphics Plus packaging plant just to the north of Bridge Street.
Even the lines of the snow fence form a degree of perspective using parallel lines.
Some of these images are going to be in the black and white category on CaptureWisconsin.com. So log on to that site. There is a link to it on this blog site. Just get on it and vote!
