|Bread 2. David Hayes, 2015.|
Same set-up...shot from above. I like how I could deal with a bit of lens distortion that comes from such shots using Lightroom's tools.

One final angle of this set-up. All were taken with my Nikon D90 DSLR and processed in Lightroom and Photoshop.

We were also given a triptych template and challenged to put together our own foursome threesome (my words) using our images. For You is my version.

|Dirty Squares. David Hayes, 2015.|
It was one of those nights...nothing I was editing was thrilling me. Perfect time for a little "faffing". For the hell of it I thought I'd create a white square and post it on IG just to see what sort of response it would get. I created the square, labeled "Square" (real original!) and started to post...
Then a spark of orneriness came across me...let's make it "dirty" and stick in into a Polaroid frame. Added the word "Dirty". Perfect.
|Dirty Square - White. David Hayes, 2015.|
What amazed me is how many people "liked" it on IG. Even left nice comments! I was on to something!!
|Dirty Square - Blue. David Hayes, 2015.|
Dirty Square - Blue followed to finish up the series. By then, my public had gotten bored with the whole concept and had moved on. IG can be such a fickle bitch sometimes...
I created each of these images using PS Touch and Polamatic. Should you be interested in owning a print of all or any of these, just let me know. They're only $90,000 each. (Might as well pay me that amount versus some dude in NYC that steals images...)

|Cuppa 1. David Hayes, 2015.|
This image was shot using my Nikon DSLR and processed using Lightroom. After some adjustments in Basics, I applied a Kim Klassen preset.

I did this before we moved a year and a half ago. Got rid of all our house plants. Now...I want new ones. Much to my wife's amusement and eye-rolling. I'm starting with succulents...just purchased a bunch of these. Had to have this Ponytail Plant when I saw it! It's a nice size now...hopefully it will get bigger. Much bigger!! Don't know where I'll put it if it does. Cross that bridge when I come to it.
Over the week-end I put the plant in front of a backdrop and did a couple quick shots with my Nikon. While I wish I had used a wider backdrop so I could have captured the entire plant, I thought some of the shots were worth further work. Both of these images were processed in Lightroom...different approaches...different presets. You'll be seeing more of this plant in the future...

|Cutting #3. David Hayes, 2015.|
I tried several different backgrounds during this shoot. The first two images were against a backlit fabric drop. Cutting #3 was a side lit shot against a stuccoed board. Cutting #4 was against a rose backboard.

|My Love Is Blue. David Hayes, 2015.|
Intrigued by air bubble in the top ice cube I went to work on this image. Two ice cubes, a large dose of the app "iColorama" and a touch of "Snapseed" and I had My Love Is Blue.

|Celestial. David Hayes, 2015.|
One last image from my "lightbulb series". Celestial was shot using my iPhone 6 camera app and processed with the apps Handy Photo and Laminar Pro. I've posted a short tutorial on how I created this image over at "The Woven Tale Press". Here's the link to take you there:Celestial

|Brown Bulb (v3). David Hayes, 2015.|
This time I applied Kim's "Lazy Day" preset and touched up the Saturation. I do like how this preset worked with the amber bulb as well as the background...so my vote goes with this version.
