2014 was a really busy year, and I shot less with my camera than I have in some time. I also posted less here on Enthusiast Photographer. Part of that is (and continues to be) that my primary editing PC was in a closet for most of the 2nd half of the year. I still have a few shots that haven’t made it to my secondary (travel) PC.
Anyway, here are a few 2014 shots that I like that hadn’t made it to the blog yet. Some of them are touristy, which is fine with me 🙂
Quick scenic stop on our way to Akureyri, the 2nd largest city in Iceland
Another scenic stop on the way to Akureyri
We were very lucky to catch the Northern Lights. Tripod and very long shutter speed required!
The cabin we stayed at…
In the museum in Reykjavík, there was a display that caught my eye…
The opera house / theatre in Reykjavík
More sculptures from 798 in Beijing
I thought this was an…interesting…contrast
It is time to get back to some more creative shots, but I still really enjoy my travel photography!
As summer approaches, I’m planning another trip to China and Japan. Since my switch to LightRoom 4 over the holidays, I’ve been watching the Lightroom Channel on YouTube, trying to improve my skills.
I thought it would be fun to see what last Summer’s photos could look like. Here are some my favorites. I realize that I didn’t post many photos from my trip to Europe (that started one week after this work trip), so I’ll go do the same thing for those and post them, too.
Like any photography tool, the better you know it, the more effective you can be – Lightroom is no different, though I have to say I’m getting a slow start with it. Guess I need to spend more time with Kelby! 🙂
