POTD: Colorado Pollinator

Bumblebee on sneezeweed, Crested Butte, CO

I love it when I can capture interactions in nature. This bumblebee had no issues with being photographed on my 2018 Colorado Wildflower Safari. Spaces are available to join me there on this year’s workshop, where you’ll learn creative close-up techniques and photograph the summer wildflower blooms in the Rocky Mountains.

Photo of the day by Jason P. Odell

I love adding textures to my images to give them an entirely new and artistic look. I combined an Authentic Paint™ texture with one of my Luminescent Painterly™ textures in Photoshop CC to create this composite image. I think it looks kind of like an aurora!

All of my textures are available for download here

It’s no secret that twilight (blue hour) offers amazing colors when shooting landscapes or cityscapes. The Badlands are no exception. You can read how I added the drop shadow effect to this image here.
