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 ūüôā ¬†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

She said in her best happy voice, ¬†“Look at those tadpoles. They’re sooooo cute!” ¬†I simply adore this litte girl. I have been taking her yearly photos since she was 6 months old. ¬†It is a joy to see¬†her growing up and becoming so curious and smart. ¬†Here are some images from our last shoot.

On antoher note, I have started using BlogStomp  to post my photos in these really cool collages you see. LOVE it!

Kansas In Spring| Trina Baker Photography Lawrence, Kansas

I took a quick little walk around my neighborhood today and found some lovely Kansas Blooms. Everything is starting to change into lovely shades of Pink, Purple and green. Energized!¬†I shot these with my Lensbaby Composer and the Edge80 optic. The edits were simply a quick white balance check, contrast and some enhancements with MCP Inspire actions. I love how subtle and customisable these actions can be. ¬†Just a quick post today as I am heading out for a meet up with my Kansas City Shoot and Share group this evening. ¬†I hope to share some photos and stories with you tomorrow ūüôā

Dried Roses|Trina Baker Photography

I spotted these dried roses on my work table and was smitten by the colors so of course I had to take some photos. I ran the Simple Cream, GeorgiaPeach and Silk Blend actions from MCP¬†along with some of her Mood Ring overlays that were also included in this set. Love the subtle matte tones these actions can create. I then added some linen textures from 2 Lil’ Owls Studio¬†to gove the images a vintage feel. ¬†It’s always a good day when I have time to play in my studio. ¬†Click on the images to see them in my shop!

Winter Color | Trina Baker Photography

Cabin fever had set in with the Artic Vortex in full blast for the past couple of days. Today it was in the mid 30’s and I just had to get out of the house and take some photos. I was amazed by all of the splahes of color I found on my quick walk. ¬†I took these with my Nikon D800 and my 85mm lens. ¬†My intention was to edit them in black and white but then I ran the Epic action from MCP’s Inspire collection and the color just popped. ¬†I love these actions because they are quite versitile and allow me to use my artisic painting skills to make the photos unique. These images are also available in the shop. Stay warm and fuzzy!

Autumn In Kansas| Trina Baker Photography

I went out on a short jaunt through Prairie Park today. ¬†I was hoping to find bits of Autumn in my favorite field and I wasn’t disappointed. ¬†Lovely hues of red and yellow were about everywhere I looked. I edited these images with Kodak Porta UV from VSCO Film and then added a bit of RadLab to give them some drama. ¬†I love all of the bokeh I was able to capture with my Lensbaby with Edge 80. ¬†Autumn is my favorite time of year so be prepared for leaf overload ūüôā

VSCO Instant Film Set | Trina Baker Photography

I went to the South Park today to snap some quick photos before it got hot today. I wanted to play around with the VSCO Instant Film Set. LOVE. ¬†These images were edited with the 669 preset. So warm and lovely. ¬†I used to shoot a lot of Polaroid film, before they went out of business, so I was quite excited when this set was released. ¬†I have tried some of the Impossible Project Film but it just wasn’t right for me. ¬†These instant film ACR presets are just amazing! ¬†I so love the matte finish and muted warm tones. They really represent what Polaroid film looked like. ¬†These images were shot with my Lensbaby, of course, with the Edge 80 opetic and edited with the 669 film in one of the four presets. There are 22 film stocks with about 4-5 variations with each one. ¬†Also, I added a subtle lens flare in Photoshop to add a little drama. ¬†I would love to know your thoughts on these images.

Saturday Garden | Trina Baker Photography

I was out on a portrait shoot this morning and after it was over I decided to snap some photos of the lovely Summer garden. ¬†The Daisies and Coneflowers were in full bloom and so pretty. ¬†This week I bit the bullet and purchased a set of presets for ACR from VSCOFilm.¬† Today was the first day I had to experiment with them and I have to say, I am loving them! ¬†These presets are designed to give you the look and feel of classic film stocks. They do a great job don’t you think? ¬†There are 11 differnt films from Fuji, Kodak and Ilford with 4 variations of each. ¬†I had a difficlut time choosing which one to use but finally settled on Kodak Porta 400. ¬†You will see a lot of my photos edited with these presets in the near future.

Happy Saturday!

Lensbaby Macro | Trina Baker Photography

Just a few quick shots taken with my Lensbaby with macro attachment. While I am not too fond of matte processing, on these images it seems to work. There is hardly any black or sharp contrast so the matte processing adds a certain mystery to these photos. What do you think? Does it work or not? I would love to know your thoughts! ¬†Here’s hoping to fun outdoor weekend plans!

Dessert In B&W| Trina Baker Lawrence,Kansas Photographer

In addition to my love of photography, I also have a passion for baking. ¬†Since it’s St. Valentine’s Day I decided to make a flourless chocolate cake and photograph the process. I am not a food blogger, my friend Megan over at The Flying Fork has that niche covered. ¬†Nor would I consider myself a food photographer. ¬†I do, however, love to photograph kitchen utensils, bowls, mixers, spoons and other items you might find in a kitchen. ¬†That is why I decided to edit these images in black and white. Well, that and the fact I am in one of those phases. I wanted to focus on the shapes, lights and patterns created when making food and that is just easier without color. ¬†Which raises a question. Can you make successful food images in black and white? ¬†Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
