Looking From Below


Taking photographs is a very pleasurable activity, it can easily become part of your life and it keeps the creative juices going.
It is very easy to take hundreds of photographs with a digital camera without any extra cost.
They used to say that the camera never lied. Today most photographs are altered. Programs like Photoshop has changed all that.
To document the life around you with a camera can become an obsession. I think a very nice one! To look at the world though a viewfinder makes you focus on what is around you. I also think that the more you photograph the better you get at it. I love to look at my subjects from every possible or impossible angel. In other words having a lot of fun!

 Dear blogging friends - have a wonderful weekend.

I agree with you, not really crazy for the pictures being altered these days. I like everything to look exactly as it was taken, but it's the meaning behind the picture that matters the most and what you are expressing. Like you just did as always with these beautiful tulips and another way to look at them.
Have a wonderful weekend Ingrid,

Oh, jag såg att du lagt till dig som följare på min sprillans nya blogg. TACK! Och tack för dina synnerligen vackra och inspirerande foton. Jag själv försökte mig på lite citrusfoto idag, hehe - innan citronerna åkte in i ugnen tillsammans med kycklingen. Än en gång tack för inspiration!

Fin bild från en ovanlig vinkel!
Jag tjatar på mina fotoelever om just det du skriver att ta ur vinklar som de får anstränga sig lite att hitta. Bilder är manipulerade, men det har de varit lika länge som fotografiet funnits, visst gör man enkelt mera i photoshop men retuschering och manipulering har alltid funnits.
Och du tar många bilder och det ser man du är duktig!
kram Sophia

Vilken härlig vinkel du funnit! Urläckert foto!!
Ja himmel! Jag har visserligen alltid (så länge jag kunnat hantera en kamera) varit foto-tokig! Men med ankomsten av de digitala har man blivit helt hejdlös!;-)

I love the angle on this photo. Very uplifting! Have a great weekend. :)

Frances said...

Ingrid, you've got a wonderful angle from which to view those pretty tulips!

I do agree with you that photography is terrific fun, and there's not much need to electronically retouch anything that we find, with our cameras and our eyes. xo

När man ser det lite grann så här från...ovan?? Nej tvärtom menar jag ju.

Åh så snyggt du har satt ditt namn på dina bilder....det vill jag också....måste öva mer. Är det photoshop eller??

Helt underbar vinkel! Men visst har man alltid manipulerat bilder i mörkrummet, trots att det var trixigare och luktade illa. Det var det roligaste jag visste, när jag var mycket ung. En digital bild måste ALLTID justeras, för att ta bort det gråa filtret, vilket man aldrig behövde fixa förr. SOOC ("Straight out of the camera") funkar inte alls längre om man fotar digitalt.
Önskar dig en riktigt skön helg!

Dear Ingrid, As I am sure you are aware, I do not have a camera and am completely in awe of people such as you who are able to create such magical images. But I must admit that I am of the view that many people are just 'snap happy' and pay insufficient attention to the composition of the image which, for me is what makes a photograph special.

Such a pretty shot! Tulips are my favorites. Have a happy happy weekend xx

Ninni said...

Vilken härlig bukett! Läckra färger och du har hittat en så fin vinkel att fotografera ur. Kreativt!
Ha en skön helg!

Cette photo est sensationnelle on dirait une lancé de ballons "tulipe" qui introduirait Mademoiselle Printemps...
Bisous et bon weekend à vous.

Georgianna said...

This is a terrific image, Ingrid – I love the graphic aspect of it and the bright colors! Tulips are photographed so much that it takes a lot of creativity to come up with a striking image. This one certainly is! Have a great Sunday. – g
