Day 186—Picker Upper

Today’s theme is “energy” and although I drove by an electrical power station on my way home from the gym this morning, my energy was too sapped to stop and take a photo. My “picker upper” of choice after a strenuous workout is Muscle Milk, a high protein energy drink. I really needed it this morning—but not before I took a couple of photos. The photos all looked uninteresting until I rummaged around and found my weights to add interest (and a little Fourth of July color). I don’t use these weights at home too often but at least they served as an appropriate prop.

I have added another Lightroom “skill” to my repertoire. Although I used my tripod this morning, I didn’t level the camera well enough so I have now learned how to straighten a photo.

  1. Well now, that looks good! I’ve never tried it, but have heard of it. Nicely composed shot- with the perfect touch of red, white, and blue. You are so good about using the tripod- I used flash again. Delighted you’ve learned another Lightroom trick! Waiting for you to try out the tone curve and adjustment brush! And the presets!
