Autumn Kansas Field|Trina Baker Photography

Autumn is coming to Kansas. The days are getting shorter and the light is amazing right now. I went out for a walk to see what I could find in the changing Landscape. I found som really pretty things 🙂  These were shot with my Nikon D800, Lensbaby Edge80 optic then edited in Photoshop with ASE6. I am loving the Kodak Faded preset mixed with a bit of light filter. So pretty! Trina Baker Photography Portraits

Grinter Farms Sunflower Field|Trina Baker Photography

Today I made my annual end of Summer trek to Grinter Farms.  This is one of the most amazing Sunflower fields you will ever see. Acres upon acres of beautiful yellow blooms. It is simply divine. I took these images with my Lensbaby Composer with the Edge80 optic and Double Glass with 10+ macro filters. They were then edited in Exposure 6 with light filters added. If you happen to stop by please remember to leave a donation. The Grinter’s plant this field every year for our pleasure so please show them some support and enjoy the view 🙂

Kansas Wildflower Still Life|Trina Baker Photography

Today I went for a walk looking for something to inspire me to take photos.  I had downloaded the new Exposure 6 from Alien Skin and need to take some photos to experiment with this software. I found an abundance of wildflowers and decided to do some simple still life images.

Exposure 6 is amazing! I love it already and I haven’t even scratched the surface of what it can do. It works as a filter within Photoshop or as a standalone app. While editing these images with some of the presets I had visions of new ideas that I could shoot. It’s funny how creativity works sometimes. These photos were edited with VSCO Kodak Porta VC in Adobe Camera Raw, imported into Photoshop and edited with Exposure 6 using the Polaroid 600 preset, light leaks and textures.  I. Am. In. Love.

So I went back to the fair for some photos at sundown. So glad I did. I was like a kid in a bokeh candy store! The lights, the blur and the energy was amazing! The fair is still happening through the weekend so go check it out! Happy Friday!

Douglas County Fair| Trina Baker Photography

I look forward to our little county fair every Summer. It’s very quaint and very Kansas. There are petting zoo’s, stick horse races demolition derbies and rides. Fun for everyone!  I like to go when there is nobody there. It’s nice to walk around and take some photos in what looks like a ghost town of sorts. Nothing is happening but you can feel it brewing. Maybe I was out in the sun too long today, but I love it!

I have taken photos of the fair many times. A lot of times, actually, with different cameras and lenses. Somehow the never look the same. My editing changes, I am seeing differently or the light is different. So I keep going back. I am going to try to go tonight at sundown to shoot when it’s all lit up and sparkly. I love the fair 🙂
