My Morning with Marilyn

date April 25, 2012 location Chicago, IL comments 3 Comments

I have to apologize for not posting very frequently lately. Ever since completing project 365 my posting has been pretty erratic, sometimes I manage to post several days consecutively, and sometimes not managing to put anything up for weeks at a time. The beauty of a hobby like photography is that there is no obligation, and I can come and go as I please. I've had a strong urge to take some photographs, so I set the alarm for just before 5am this morning and snapped (among others) this photo of the Marilyn Monroe statue. I have tried various compositions, and watched other photographers attempt to capture her as well, and I never thought I would say this but I am really happy with how this one came out.

May I ask what you edit with?

Thanks for stopping by, Laura. I use Lightroom/Photomatix/Photoshop for all of my photos. Within photoshop I use Imogenomic Noiseware and Nik Color Efex plug-ins. You can see how I use all of those by checking out my tutorial complete with video.
