I saw the light streaming between the clouds while I was sitting at my desk. My first thought was to grab the camera and get the shot before the sun went behind another cloud and I’m glad I did! It could probably be a little brighter, but I brought the exposure down a few steps to give it a darker mood. Winter IS winning this battle between cold and warmth after all..
Day 7 had me a little busy hanging out with some of my favorite people at the Bath City Bistro. Granted, I didn’t take the photo (unless I’m Superman and I can move 10 feet in a 200th of a second..) but I’m getting the feeling that quite a few of my multiples of 7 are going to be pictures like this. Friday night is a night to spend with good friends! I hope you all had a great night with your friends! 🙂
One more day and I’ll have been at this a week.. then there’s only 51 more to go before I’m done. If you think taking a picture a day for a year sounds easy, I challenge you to try the Photo365 challenge. I already feel like I’ve learned a lot in just six days, so I can promise it is rewarding. It will be exciting to see if my photos improve from month to month.
For today’s picture, I had originally included the entire tree in the shot. Once I opened it up in Lightroom, it looked busy. I ended up cropping down to about a fifth of the original size. Thankfully my camera has the megapixels to back a drastic crop and still have a usable photo.
Today’s photo of the day was a lot of fun to shoot and then process afterward! It’s a simple effect, provided you can keep the camera completely stationary while you’re shooting a sequence of images. I’ll definitely be trying this again in the summer with a more even light source (the sun) and with the camera zoomed out a bit more. With the camera zoomed out more I should be able to get more shots of myself or other people doing wild and wacky things.
I didn’t really think either of these were worthy of a photo of the day, but together I figured they’d have to do. Taking a picture every day is already getting difficult!
The Christmas tree was unlit so I took a 15 second exposure. Pixel was wandering by so I grabbed him and made him my unwilling subject… I really need a dedicated strobe, using a speedlight was taking too long between shots to allow for charging.
Yeah I know, it looks like a beautiful sunrise/sunset. Except it’s not. You’re looking at what the camera sees if you just leave the shutter open a little longer at night with a full moon.
Day three of my Photo365 project and I’m still going strong. Please leave me a comment with any suggestions for future photos. I’m sure I’ll need some ideas after only a few more days!
Photo for day 2 of my Photo365 project. I really amped up the vibrancy in Lightroom and I’m not completely happy with the effect, but it was the end of the day and there’s already the screen from my window in the way. I’ll do better tomorrow!
