whispers of Spring to Stacey by TSHansen whispers of Spring to Stacey by TSHansen
I dedicate this photo to Stacey 73 at [link]
She does some wonderful digital painting. At first this photograph was awful, but then again most of my photographs are sub par to not so good. This time around rather then just give up, i poured hour into hour until I forced the image to become what I felt saw in all it warm beauty. Camera's make me so angry there cold re-interpetation of the images and colors, most of the time they ruin perfectly good pictures turing them into trash. Life can be like this most of the time for some of us, derailing us with crap we dont want to deal with. Most of the time it makes us just bitter,depressed and no fun to be around(atleast Im not fun ask any of my x-'s). Some times though when we dont give up, the struggle gives us new insight. With those idea's in mind i struggled though this Stacey because the warmth of the light reflecting off the flower petals reminds me of your spirit. Hope ya like it, even if it is a silly sub-par flower picture. I learned from it and from you =)

Wow. It certainly has come alive in all its stark primal essence

I appreciate it, sorry i have not made anything in a long time. It seems my art was made largely to the impossible task of impressing my mom. Now that my greatest critique is gone, i am thinking of returning to my musical roots. If i go back to a physical medium i will have to study semiotics and symbolic stenography some more. I built a new computer last night and hope in a few days I will have a hackintosh(intel pc turned into a mac).

So you're a computer genius!

Speaking, through sheer will power your coming along nicely. Any chance you thought of investing some money in the new dynamic multiple exposure and multiple focal length for increased depth of fields. Like [link]
and [link]

I am half tempted to dump some money into this, seems I cannot get my camera dynamics and focal ranges to behave. Maybe if i beat my camera with a laptop and some more money the little bastard will do what it suppose to. Btw I finally got to get ride of my xti...It had an error working with a 20-300mm lens from tameron lens. Seem the canon and tameron screwed me so for the past 2 year I have had nothing but camera problems. Finally convinced national camera to let me trade in for the newer xsi that does not have the same issues...So maybe in a few months you will see some more sky picks. ANyhow i may have already shared that information at another time, forgive me if i am repeating myself. I think the whole HDR and Helicon stuff is revolutionary. I am just happy that it makes it such a pain in the arse to lug all thatr crap on sight, gives me a change to compete with the big guys, probably gonna be atleast 5 years before multiple white points will be built into camera's. Might as well get going while the going is good =)

I appreciate the advice. Yes, I've given it thought, but it would be premature to invest in such items. I've only owned my SLR for about nine months and I feel I should become completely at "one" with it before taking the next steps. Your photos are very professional and a strong case for getting this additional equipment, but it will have to wait until I "grow" into it. I love my Tameron and, so far, it has not screwed up on me except when I have not attached it properly. Anyhow, I'd love to see more of your sky pixs. It is difficult for me to travel with too much equipment because I travel light with just one backpack. However, that gives me the versatility to go anywhere I like. Thanks for the deeply detailed comment!

I was tempted to do a before and after. But yes i can finally agree its lighting was preserved for what it was. I finally after 14 books and hundreds of pictures one of them came out good =) Thank you for the compliment. Makes the hard work that I did in photoshop worth it.

These are so pretty! I have a tree (flowering snow crabapple) in the back yard that has blossoms very similar to this, if not identical.
