VSCO Flowers

Sometimes I don’t have the energy to bring out the big camera, which can seem a little large and unnecessary for short trips. One of my favorite ways to edit pictures nowadays is VSCO, which has a nice set of filters to use (my favorite F2) and can be posted on its own media platform as well as saved to your camera roll. Below are some of the pictures I took and edited with VSCO. Almost all of them were taken while I was on my way to church, just showing how convenient and easy it is to take nice pictures. My VSCO is meibinios.vsco.com, if you would like to take a look at more pretty pictures 🙂

Gardens at Random

Whoop whoop. I am back with a new set of photographs. I sort of ran out of flowers in my neighborhood (though it’s been a while since I’ve been looking for them, so I’m sure new ones will have bloomed/I will take pics if I can), so I have just been taking pictures of anything that pleases me aesthetically or stretch my photography skills. I’m still not super good at taking pictures of things that are not close up, so I’ll have to post pictures of those later… but for now, gardens and randomness!

More flowers and plants

Some of the leftover pictures from my last walk around my neighborhood as well as some added pictures recently. I edited these using Photoshop, mostly using gamma correction, offset, brightness, and contrast. It really makes a difference in pictures – adjusting the color and the lighting just so that you can transform and enhance your picture into the best that it can be. 🙂

Delaware Flowers

The other day, I took out my camera while out on a walk with my mother to take some pictures. I apologize if some of the pictures are sort of blurry and weirdly focused but I am still working on changing aperture (my weakest point)! My favorite picture is probably the one of the Veitch’s Blue (not sure if that’s actually it’s name – there are too many flowers with spiky lavender tops to be sure), but all of them are lovely and beautiful flowers offered in my wonderful state and neighborhood. Will probably show more later 😛 x

Vancouver Flowers

Long time no post…but I have not forgotten. One of my 2016 New Year’s Resolutions is to be better about blogging and exploring my interests, one of which is photography! I have been trying to be better at using Photoshop, so look forward to more high quality posts 🙂

I took these flower pictures when I went to Vancouver. My family and I went to the Butchart Gardens, known for their roses and other types of hybrid flowers.
