Hello 2015! Happy New Year!

A New Years Resolution of mine is to blog more this year. And I have a lot of material I’d like to blog, so I’m rolling the work out in pieces.

Tomorrow I will be sharing with you the first week’s worth of images from my 365 project on Instagram. If you’re interested, join in! It’s for camera phone images only and the hash tag is #JD565Project.

Today, I want to share with you the images I took from my three days on the beaches of South Florida where we visited with family. I didn’t take my “real” camera out much, and instead, had fun capturing images with my iPhone 6+ and Panasonic Lumix TS5, which is waterproof. Both shoot jpg and are relatively simple point and shoot manual cameras. The processing you see for the first sets of images were done within my phone, editing within the built-in camera library and also using Instagram filters. (Follow me on Instagram here).

This series was also shot with my iPhone, just processed more simply, mostly just using JD Foundations actions Bright Glow, Warm Dimension, Sharpen, Golden Saturation Bright Blush Saturation.

This series was shot with my Panasonic Lumix TS5 and processed with the Foundations Actions Bright Glow, Warm Dimension, Sharpen, Golden Saturation Bright Blush Saturation. The shots with more retro golden tones were additionally processed with the tint Terra Cotta from the Earthy Tints Set.

Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be offering some tips on how to take better shots with your camera phone, so please stay tuned 🙂

And just in case you were wondering, here are 2 photos taken with my “real” camera. I edited them with the same Foundations Actions as mentioned previously.
