Lens-Artists #110: Creativity in the time of Covid-19

This week, Tina has asked us to show creativity in the time of Covid-19.

I’ve tried my best to stay creative with my photography during this time. I’ve been experimenting with different photo techniques and some different editing effects.

One day in early spring I went out after a rain shower to take some photos. I wasn’t happy with them until I started playing around with different editing effects. This Mexican Sunflower photo was boring until I added a water color effect.

I am usually on the ground looking up when I take pictures of hummingbirds. One day I sat on our deck looking down at the flowers and captured this Ruby Throated Hummingbird going from flower to flower. By shooting from above I was able to get the shots I wanted.

I’d like to thank the amazing Lens-Artists team of Tina, Amy, Anne-Christine, and Patti for giving me inspiration and keeping me motivated during this time.

Tina, thank you for this weeks Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Creativity in the Time of Covid-19

  1. The hummingbird shot would earn an A+ in anyone’s book. It is an amazing shot considering how fast they move. What kind of camera were you using? The watercolor Mexican Sunflower is lovely so I have to ask what you used to achieve that effect. Your photography skills are certainly on display for all to enjoy with this post. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

    1. Judy, you have just made my day! Thank you! I use a Sony A550 DSLR camera. For the hummingbird photo I used a 400mm zoom lens. I use Adobe Photoshop Elements to edit the photos. I applied the watercolor effect to the sunflower.

  2. Great pictures,both for the technique using the watercolour effect and, especially, for your skill to get the hummingbird. From my own unsuccessful attempts I know how difficult that is.

  3. That hummingbird capture needs to be framed, entered into Birds and Blooms magazine! Outstanding!

    Editing is fun… sometimes a boring picture becomes extraordinaire after its edited properly. Nice job on the watercolor effect on the flower.

    Happy Day to you!
