Adobe Photoshop Express

Incredibly easy to use and sophisticated 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I am a professional photographer by trade, but I teach an smart phone photography class, and my students often ask me what’s the best app for creating photos, and I say Adobe Photoshop Express. It has controllers that are easy to manipulate, and the photos you end up with look really professional. Even the filters are a little better than what I’ve seen out there. It really brings the creative power of a Adobe Photoshop to your camera phone.

something about macro photography

So, I’ve been doing some macro shooting in my kitchen niche, with a friend of mine, who’s sharing some of her Paleo/No Glutton recipes with me. She’s making some wonderful inroads to creating a line of healthy but tasty foods.

I am having some fun figuring out how best to shoot the close-up’s of her Spaghetti sauces, Asian stir fries, and ‘raw-diet’ fruit smoothies. I had been using my old school Nikon macro 55mm f/3.5 lens, which has been creating some nice boca effect, but my friend has been pushing me to create even clearer and more vibrant shots.

She’s suggesting that I get the Nikon 105mm Macro f/2.8 G lens, which I am reading really is a premiere lens for shooting close-up food photography; on the Nikon side of things.

In the mean time, I’ve been playing around with the Nikon Macro M2 extension tube to see if I can get a little closer to the subject matter.

I picked it up from a little classic film and audio tape shop in China Town. The lady, who owned the place, was pleased that I bought the pristine lens so she threw in the extension tube at no cost.

And I found a cassette tape of one of my favorite Jazz artists, Something Warm by Oscar Peterson as well.
