lorashank •The Little Things•

Throw back to iPhone 4 and Olloclip days. My photography equipment has advanced, but that tiny little gadget, called Olloclip was the beginning of my love for macro photography.

lorashank In a world filled with doubt,
You must dare to dream.✦
In a world filled with anger,
You must dare to forgive.✧
In a world filled with hate,
You must dare to love.✦
In a world filled with distrust,
You must dare to believe.✧ And once you do, you will find that power you once thought you lacked.✦♡✦

  •   shezasphotos Just a personal thing but I prefer real shots as natural to the naked eye ! Hope you don't take offence at this . I noticed lots of people who became addicted it it but I don't like it . Be interested to hear your thoughts 2w

  •   lorashank @shezasphotos I'm just seeing your question. No offense taken. I'm enjoying this edit app more than any other I've tried. If I'm printing photos I don't think I'd print one from an app edit. And, I do prefer natural shots in their natural habitat. That's most of my gallery. I know a lot of people that "set up" their photos indoors to emulate an outdoor feel with lighting and subject set. It looks natural but it's not really in its natural element. I see a lot of edits that looks natural like sun rays, reflections, etc. I'm not saying this a bad thing or less than beautiful, just that it's not purely natural. That's the beauty of photography and sharing our artistic work on IG. We can learn something new, hear about new apps or equipment and share our interests. What I'm trying to say is that most people edit in some way if it's not straight from their camera roll. With my new camera, I rarely have to do any edits other than crops. So, this is just my attempt at editing which I'm normally not comfortable doing. Again, it's another step in sharing what I want and like on my gallery and less concerned about the number of likes. Actually, to my surprise trying this editing app has increased my followers and attention to my gallery. But, if you don't like it, that's okay too. Your gallery is beautiful in its own way, just like other friends. We all have different styles, opinions and try to support each other. ️ Thank you for always being a loyal supporter from the beginning days of our IG experiences. 7d

  •   shezasphotos @lorashank darling Lora I've taken a screenshot of this so I can get back to you . I wonder would you mind deleting it as I would ask that my comment go as it sounds absolutely heartless which is not how I interned . I just meant mextures and I sure know how popular it is . Will word back when I have time - love your work, you and your honesty 7d

All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless your heart..♡ ______________________________

Now, I can understand why my friends suggested I try it. I rarely edit photos, but I can see this app will be addictive.
Thank you, Diane @fridakitten and Kristi @orbabgirl for your patience with all my questions.

But I can make an explosion
