I tend to read more and do less. I lurk on this board and try to soak up the skill and wisdom of the good photographers here. I intend to change that. So today, an ordinary day, I walked around outside to find things that caught my attention to photograph. I seem to be most interested in today in lines and textures. So these are my favorite shots from today. I think they are not nearly as good as the almost daily images I see from the many good photographers here, but I need to start where I am. The problem with "lines and textures", I think, is that it gives nothing for the viewer to contact with except the overall rhythm of the composition. I am also trying to learn a bit about the development options in Capture One (for Sony). It looks like the "Clarity" options have huge impact, but I do not understand, really, what they do. If any of you can point me to good explanations, I would appreciate it. These images were captured with a A7ii and 40mm Heliar, a simple, manual lens that is not surpassed by my skills. I want to improve my photography, so comments are welcome. I will not be offended. I respect you people more than you probably guess.
