Lightroom 5

The most important thing is to enjoy your life — to be happy — it’s all that matters.

There are two ways of seeing: with the body and with the soul. The body’s sight can sometimes forget, but the soul remembers forever.

These photos were post processed in Lightroom 5 with one of my new pastel presets, Amethyst, from Rebecca Lily Pro Set III. Images from this trip have also been selected for print in an upcoming volume of Hearth Magazine.

My little blog has been sadly neglected over this very busy summer. Over the weekend I had some time to look at my shots from Spain again and put this little beach-themed set together. I think I have one more post to do before I call it good, which is right in time because this week Johnny and I are ready to travel again – this time to Scandinavia. I’m very excited to bring along my new medium format film camera, a Rolleiflex Planar 2.8F, and shoot that along with the Leica M9.

(If you haven’t seen Johnny’s Andalusia photos on film yet, you need to take a peek. They are beautiful.)

 

One of my favorite publications, Hearth Magazine, has selected the images from this shoot for print in Volume 6.

Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places.

Among the many countless blessings in my life, I am privileged to be able to share the love of photography with my husband. Besides shooting together continuously, we talk about photography every day, bounce thoughts back and forth and give each other a lot of support and encouragement in our individual work. I’m aware that this is not commonplace, and I’m very thankful.

This day will always be etched in my memory, not only for the unique light we had and how gentle, yet wild the horses were, here in these mist-covered hills by the sea, but because I shared the experience with my favorite person on earth.

Johnny’s beautiful images of the horses on film (Hasselblad and Leica) are here.
