On Father’s Day, we went to my grandfather’s farm and of course I brought my camera. I’m still really practicing to try to get good at taking pictures. Apparently, my strength seems to be in up-close shots of flowers in natural lighting. Anything else turns out kind of…. crappy lol. I decided to work on some more broad-range outdoor shots this time, and they didn’t turn out too bad! Not as good as my flower shots, but oh well. And I would’ve gotten a lot more horse pictures had I not been an idiot and forgot to disable the flash (I didn’t think it would go off outside!) and spooked the horses. I only got one “front” shot because I was afraid to stay in the pen with them after I spooked them, which is why the rest of the shots are butt shots. Now if I could just take semi-decent indoor shots/people shots, I’d be good to go. Poor little Clark, he’s going to have a paparazza for a mother as he will soon become my guinea pig 🙂
A small sampling of shots:

these pictures are stunning. did you play with the color a bit or are they all natural?
I did edit them, as I usually always do, but nothing fancy – I just use Windows’ built-in picture viewer, click fix, and mess with the brightness/contrast. Sometimes I also mess with the tint, saturation, and hue, but not nearly as much as the first two (which I find are 90% of what brings out the cool features in a well-taken picture).
But don’t let any photographer fool you – they almost always edit their photos, even if it’s just a tiny tweak. Our photographer asked us if we had an issue with that, and of course we didn’t – color editing may enhance a photo, but it’s not going to make a bad photo look good. It’s just going to enhance what has already been captured.
