Agave takes its name from greek, meaning something deserving admiration (Linnaeus).

From start to finish in APhoto, amazing leaves...

Thanks for reading.

It has been a long time since my last post...

I had a bit of time to "play" : I try to strengthen the texture/forms/colors in APh.

To change a bit, some flowers... I had fun with these ones : from raw/nef (quite flat with horrible background) to adjustments in Develop and Photo Personas (I hope I did not already post the inflorescence, I could not find it herein). The 3rd is a close-up of the second. Amazing flowers O.o

Cheers,

Patrick

@PedroOfOzThank you for the info :). I do not know this book but I have to admit that I do notmotivationny (photo)booksmotivationaraphy :$. I have a few quite old ones more about newbie rudimental techniques that I bought when I was young (a long time ago ;-)

I will certainly get it. I do like very much B&W photos. I should spend more time in APhoto trying to get B&W photos like they works for me.

Cheers,

Patrick

@Pattou  It's really a pleasure to look at your work and just thinking that you have done it with Affinity Photo is kind of motivational vitamin. 

I believe buying the Affinity Workbook will be of great interest for you (if you haven't got a copy already)

Macrophotography of some lichens (macro lens, f16-20, tripod): from raw/nef to APh . The 3r one is a close-up of the second, different adjustments for diffrent feelings.

These "still life" photos might not suit everyone but they work very well for me. The raw were quite dull (I even wondered what I was going to do with them)... From Develop to Photo Persona with different live filters and blend modes and here is the result with such texture & colours. This is not macrophoto due to the size of the flowers.

Cheers,
Patrick

Still some macros but in addition to the editing I usually do, I've tested the live lightning filter which brings a kind of relief. APhoto dealed rather well with these images but I did not test another photo app for comparison (I saw in the forum that some users have problems with APh as a raw processor). The first two were processed from raw of different f (20 and 40), not the best to get a sharp image but APh sharpen filters are efficient, and I did not want to deal with focus stacking process this time (I might try to test APh).

Here it is, a stacking of 6 images (macrophoto) at f/9.
It needed time to carry out the process due to the complexity of the subject but APhoto handles well, really very well. I only edited halos around edges with the clone brush tool (no other cloning or inpainting).

Ok, the last of the week :D... and even stronger for APh : 18 images first processed for hdr (naturel but contrasted look; 3 by 3) and then processed for stacking (6 images). It took almost 3 hours but APhoto did a great job. Halos were substantial but could be removed with the clone stamp tool from the source layers.

Another feeling in B&W, also in Aphoto :)

Cheers,

Patrick

@PedroOfOz Thank you for your comment :) !

On my screen (calibrated but not dedicated to photography), the B&W appears very contrasted and you can easily be into the different forms and texture of these tiny little (often less than ~1cm) living creatures. Without contrast, it is clearly less appealing... but indeed, one can wonder which subject has been photographed xD

Cheers,

Patrick

Hello Patrick , I could do a somewhat long winded reply however go to my web and click about ... it'll give a little about my background  ... I wish you all the best with your work and I did post a link, back a bit, to a  master photographer that works, in the same church, same pew as you' ... go for it  ;) 

Screens, background ... nah! I'm calibrated ... I walked into a darkroom in 1979 and walked out of it for the last time in 2003 as a well seasoned pro....  :)
