Six Select

I dug through my folders while house bound and came up with these six plant photographs I would like to show.

In case anyone finds this useful. My filing system for my over 100,000 images starts with folders named by location (USA, World, People, etc.) with sub folders by year. Inside the year folders are dated folders: YYYMMDD and subject. Inside those folders are folders called RAW, TIF, JPG, PSD – as needed. This folder structure works well in Lightroom as I can select by type of file easily. I use file names starting with YYYMMDD subject, and number. I also find files easily searching the added meta data of location and details on the subject. Using the date first in a file name means that files will will sort chronologically  in any computer system or app.

A rework of an old photograph in Photoshop.

Winter Berries, Central Park 1/21/2012 and 12/17/2010

Red Leaves

Central Park 10/28/2018

Photographed with a Nikon D750 and a Sigma 120-600 mm F5-6.3 DG OS Contemporary lens at 600 mm. Processed in Lightroom, On1 PhotoRaw 2018, and Photoshop. I did not like the green in the original. I wanted only reds, I removed distracting elements, and added a texture.

The trashed version before processing in the “darkroom”.
