I can’t believe I haven’t posted since July 2nd. Has life been that busy for me? I didn’t think so! Now, with this post, I hope to get back in the posting groove. I may not have been posting, but I’ve been shooting.

And, since this is about the progression of my photographic journey, I’m proud to say that I now close out of most article-type tutorials because I know the information. So this means I need to focus on post processing. I keep saying that, but I truly need to carry through with it. I’m competent with Lightroom, but Photoshop is still a mystery. I’ll have to just make the time and get into it. Maybe that will take my photography to the next level.

But, on to the sunflowers, or sunnies, as we Sacramento photographers call them. The images in this post are from two outings. These sunnies were located near the small town of Yolo in Yolo County. Photo buddy Karen was our guide for both trips. One is in the morning and the other was at sundown. Of course, when I try to catch a sunset, there are no clouds! However, the flowers had that golden light glow.

Enjoy this post. There will be more!

  1. Anne – this is one of your absolute best series. I have been following you for awhile, and this set just blew me away for their beauty and quality. – N


  2. Never heard of Luminar, but I’ve bought so much software and just don’t use it. I need to learn what I have before I buy something else. I’ve got an earlier version of On 1, Photo Suite and more. I also subscribe to Adobe CC.


  3. I have the same problem. I love Lightroom and I would like to learn Photoshop! But I open it and I don’t know where to start… so back to Lightroom, hehehe
    I love your sunnies! There are a lot of plantations here in Switzerland, so maybe this year I try to photograph them…. I just need to find the right one (I’d love to photograph a plantation during sunset, with a nice background) and the time to go!! It’s been busy here lately, hehehe πŸ™‚


  4. I bought Matt Kloskowsky’s course for PS and LR. I love the way he teaches. He speaks in plain words and slowly. You might try it. My problem is taking the time to get into them. Am I being lazy?? And thanks for loving my sunnies. They are fun to shoot.
