Before and After: REDHOTT

Took this shot back in 2017 at a car show in Coshocton County, Ohio. I think the license plate explains the car very well. Edited with ON1 Photo Raw.

New Camera: Canon G5 X Mark II

While I own a full frame Canon 5D Mark III camera, I have been thinking of getting a second camera but a point and shoot type. My 5D is great but is heavy like many DSLRs and with my back problems, carrying around a heavy camera and bag is not helping. Sometimes I just need a camera small and lightweight that I can through into my pocket. I do find that most of the time I am out at the park or riding the bike trail, all I really need is a lightweight small camera.

Canon has come out with two such cameras, G7 X Mark III and G5 X Mark II. The G7 X Mark III, the cheaper of the two, does not have a viewfinder something I am use to having. And it seems more for the vlogger for which I am not. The G5 X Mark II seems to be for the photographer which probably explains why it is the only one of the two that has a pop up viewfinder but it costs a little more than the G7. While I have a iPhone, camera phones in my opinion just can't match the abilities and quality of a camera with an actually zoom lens.

Before and After: Flowers in the park

Trying something different with ON1 Photo Raw 2019 by being a little creative with this shot I took while walking through the local city park.

Photo Art: Pelotonia

Once again, a little combination of photography and art using a photo I took from this year's Pelotonia 2019. First, taking a photo into Corel Painter 2020 and using the auto painting feature and using a impressionist style brush. Then, taking what was created and opening into Affinity Photo. There I blend the art and the photo together and added a texture to complete the work.
