It’s been a month since my last blog post. Autumn had arrived and I was ready to head out with my camera. I was able to get one or two outings in before Oregon reinstated lockdown measures. One of the measures states that restaurants can only do take out. Since I’m a bartender I’m temporarily unemployed again. The upside is I have more time to explore my hobbies. I decided to start where I left off at the end of the last quarantine learning Photoshop.
These picture were all from before lockdown. Half of them are work related. It’s kind of a blessing having a scheduled photoshoot day at work. It forces me to take some photos, then I can get creative in the editing throughout the week. Just recently I decided to learn how to create 3D photos on their social media. To create this effect you need to take a photo in portrait mode on a smart phone. When you use portrait mode it actually takes both a foreground and background photo. When posting on Facebook you can then convert the photo to 3D. Unfortunately you can’t really post 3D photos many places. Facebook has cornered the market to share 3D photos. You can use apps like pop pic or insta360’s to view pictures in 3D, but you can’t share them directly.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy out there.
