Today I took more pictures of my watch, but this time with a macro lens. The depth of field on this is about a millimeter or two. Look at how the facing is in focus but the flight computer on the outside edge isn’t. I’m amazed that such a shallow depth of field was even possible!
Just a little one today. My main photos will have to wait until tomorrow. The camera is outside right now doing some star trails. 45 minutes and counting on this exposure. 3 hours total on other photos. I’m very inexperienced with star trails so it takes a while to get the aperture and ISO figured out in order to expose for as long as I have it exposing for.
It was still too overcast to get any good shots of the night sky so I had Monica come outside and we did some light painting. I love this shot, she looks like she’s powering up in an episode of Dragonball Z.. 😉 The gallery has a few more light painting shots, please check them out! Also, I strongly suggest trying this out yourself. Just turn your ISO up, shutter speed down, and put the camera somewhere stationary. Then grab a flash light or some glow sticks and go nuts!
Just arrived down south at my parents’ house a few hours ago. It’s great to see my parents and my siblings, it’s been way too long! The tree they put up this year is ENORMOUS.
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.
