South Park Summer Blooms|Trina Baker Photography

I needed to get out and shoot for fun today. My portrait studio is keeping me quite busy this Summer. This afternoon I ventured down to South Park to take some photos with my Lensbaby Velvet 56. It is super hot here today so I only shot for about 15 minutes, however, I love the images I captured. These were edited with VSCOcam on my iPad with the “Essence” preset. I love the look of old matte film. Thanks for looking. Leave a comment so I know you were here ❤️

Some quick photos shot with the Lensbaby Velvet 56 using the macro function. This lens is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Although it is a little tough to focus, especially at f1.8, it creates such dreamy photos that it’s worth it to me to spend some time getting the perfect focus. I edited these images with AlienSkin Exposure 7 using the Fuji 100 film preset. I like how the images have a vintage film look.

I am not the best gardener on the planet, however, I am the Tulip master. Today I wanted to make some abstract images from my garden. Off I went with my Lensbaby mobile lens, LM-10,  and my iPhone 6 and took some shots. I am really loving this lens lately. When I first shot with it I was not impressed. It sat untouched in my bag for a few months. About a month ago I started using it again and something clicked. I figured out how to use the blur and embrace the depth of field. Experimenting with this lens has really made me slow down and be more aware of composition. A really good lesson indeed.

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.

Lensbaby Mobile LM10 Lens| Trina Baker Photography

I got my Lensbaby mobile lens this week and I love it! It’s really great to have the Lensbaby in my pocket ready to capture and embrace the blur at a moments notice. The lens was part of a Kicstarter campaign and will be available for purchase later this year. Here are some of my favorite images from this week edited with the VSCO app.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!

Cotton Candy & Bokeh|Trina Baker Photography

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 🙂
