Revisiting the Evermacro Device.

About one Year ago, I blew my own Mind with the Evermacro Device, a small Adapter that allows you to turn any Lens into a Macro Lens. And since I am currently only going outside when I need to, I thought that it would be a nice Idea to revisit that magical Tool by doing… Continue reading Revisiting the Evermacro Device.

Trying some Product Photography.

Today, I had to take an early morning Physics Exam. After that, I wanted to get out and do some Photography in the Nature. But it was cold and wet and I really did not like it outdoors.

Digital Photography is awesome. You can pretty much do what you want, and you are only limited by the size of your Memory Card. And those usually hold way more than just 36 Shots. But all that Pixely Goodness also has its downsides. Because you can do what you want, you can also easily overdo… Continue reading Pixel Peeping.

Removing Distractions with Photoshop.

Usually, I do not Remove Stuff from Photos. But with me getting better at Photoshop, that kinda changed. Now, I still do not get crazy with any of the Healing Brushes. I just remove Things that are Distracting and or Annoying in the Image. Usually, I just take out Small Things though. Wild Trash Bags.… Continue reading Removing Distractions with Photoshop.
