Playing around with B&W

Once again, I have been using Nik Software plug-in for LR5 called Silver Effex Pro 2.0 to convert some wildlife images to black and white.  I have been wanting to see the difference when texture is the key communicator versus color.

Here are the results:

The buffalo images were lacking in color but after the conversion they found major new life.  I am really enjoying wildlife images in B&W because I feel like contrast and texture can communicate so much!

Welcome to Lee Hoy Photography!

Hello everyone and welcome to my website leehoyphotography.com!  I want to take a minute and introduce you to the website/blog and let you know what you can expect from me.  This website will be focused on introducing people to the world of wildlife photography, macro photography (specifically focusing on dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies), and landscape photography.  While I enjoy all three, photographing birds and dragonflies tends to occupy my interest most often.

In addition. I use Adobe Lightroom 5.0 for all of my digital editing and I will be offering tips, tricks and techniques when it comes to editing your photographs.  I am located in Georgetown, Texas and while most of my photography occurs in this great state, I do, on occasion, get to travel to other destinations to photograph.  Many of us often wonder where are some great spots to photograph and I will be sharing locations as well with my reviews and recommendations.

If you are a beginner, all the better.  I love to teach folks how to make the most out of their time photographing.  I will be offering private lessons, group workshops and classes as well so stay tuned for my schedule of events beginning January 2014.  If you have any topics you would like me to address, please don’t hesitate to contact me and ask.
