Week 32 – Becky


Future Frog

The ditch in our front yard is full of water from all the rain.  Amazing how fast the tadpoles appeared.  I tried to take a photo of one with back legs but they would not cooperate. Put my Olympus TG-4 in the water on microscope mode.  Cropped and sharpened. Settings were f3.5, 1.100sec, iso800, and 10mm.

Bygone Memories

These are some tea roses that I dried. They are from a bouquet of flowers that I gave my 92 year mother for her birthday. Unfortunately, she does not know who I am anymore due to Alzheimer’s. But, I know who she is and who she was and she’ll always be my lovely mother.

Taken on microscope mode with my Olympus TG-4. Then applied Topaz Adjust 5’s Portrait Smooth filter.


Week 24 – Becky


Young Assassin Bug

This guy is really tiny.  Had to look hard among the leaves.  This is a very young assassin bug.  Shot with my Olympus TG4 on microscope mode.  Settings were ISO800, 18mm, f4.9 and 1/400secs.  Started my processing in Adobe Lightroom (cropping etc…) then finished processing in Adobe Photoshop.  Trying to learn how to use Lightroom.  All the photography pros keep saying how Lightroom was a game changer for them.

Happy Clicking!
