Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did. ~Newt Gingrich
Victory!! After a lot of patience and perseverance, I believe I have finally fixed my computer. It took a few nights of not doing the right thing and getting frustrated before I buckled down and slowly went through the proper steps to wipe out the “bugs”. I found my answer on Techspot.com. Not only did I find the answer to my problems but I found a site with a wealth of computer information I can use.
So, it’s back to photography! My Photoshop and Lightroom programs are working super quick now, with no warning of an overdriven cpu! I was so giddy, I decide to work on some mushroom photos I took in my yard right before my, hopefully, final mow of the year. I shoot these mushrooms every year when they pop up and try to process the shots a little different each time since the subjects look basically the same al of the time.
This year I went with a straight black and white process with a high contrast between the ‘shroom and the grass. I wanted the single mushrooms to really stand out. I have been really enjoying B&W photography lately and when I find images I shot that have a certain luminosity of the subject, it’s straight to the B&W conversion! As a matter of fact, I am going to make getting better at black and white photography a main goal in the coming months.
