Out of Focus on the Beach

by Kristi Hines

You know how sometimes, you take a photo planning to do one thing, but then it comes out completely different? This is one of those shots. It was pre-HDR and pre-Nikon, and all I wanted to do was get a closeup of the little thing on the sand. But what I captured was the beautiful sky in the background instead…

Shades of Purple

One of the things I love to shoot is flowers, specifically closeups of flowers. I wish I could say that it was crazy processing skills that made the flower come out this way, but this photo actually needed little editing. I really liked the hazy feel of it.
