Day 18-Shadow Aaannnddd…*awkwardly realizes negligence …. I know. I’m terrible. I’m awful. Not fit for challenges (actually…that’s true 😛 ) . But here’s day eighteen’s image anyways… It’s super simple. Here’s it’s unedited twin. 😀… More
Here we are!
For the final post in this short series. This might end up being the longest…but I don’t know for sure. We were visiting some friends…this post has water, miniature ponies, azaleas, and swinging. Plus some more randomness.
Going home I shot pictures from the windows.
That’s a wrap, folks.
I hope you enjoyed this little four-part series. I could have added tons more than I did…but my memory is really getting small now.
On this day…we celebrated my birthday (way) early.
Guess what? I am doing my first actual senior shoot sometime soon. I will be attempting to do a dear friend’s photos for her (she follows this blog). I don’t know if I’ll be posting any of them or not. I hope so…but if nothing else—good practice 😀 .
We will gallivant all over creation. And have a lot of fun. 😉
Tune in to Part Four soon! It’s the ‘finale’ (but don’t expect TOO much, people!) so that will be it.
Here’s part two!
We got to visit our dear childhood friends again on this day. I didn’t take many pictures that I liked here (because talking sometimes is more important than taking pictures 😀 ).
And they had just gotten some chicks and baby ducklings. They were so cute! I photographed the ducklings.
And then I took a nice rule-of-thirds photo of their fence.
Then we went to my Aunt and Uncle’s house and I went for a moody photography feel. Pretty much all black and white. 😉
And then some pine cones for a rustic look.
And then I almost missed this special cousin-bonding moment. My brother and cousin Steven were playing by the playground. So I snuck up and framed them with a bush 😀 .
And this is my Aunt and Uncle’s chihuahua–Chica. I like her a lot. She’s actually a nice dog.
And that’s it for part two!
p.s–Don’t forget to join me next time for part three! 😀
Guys…photo director 3 is #nice !
I love it.
There are more practical uses…like this photo:
And more fun editing to do like in this photo:
Then there are just nice settings to improve white balance and softening. Like in this image:
All in all…it’s been a ride.
I do acknowledge that this sort of editor COULD make one lazy. But I refuse to be that type of person when it comes to editing. I still prefer quality from my camera…I only like basic editing for my actual photography stuff.
This is a dandelion that I freelensed using my 50mm.
I have some things regarding scheduling/announcements on this blog to get out there.
I am getting a real set of reflectors (as a birthday gift) !
I will be super busy this May, and doubt that I will be able to post much.
I am now restricted to only ONE hour on the internet per day. And my internet is restricted so that the first time I can get on is 1:00.
Basically just expect much less posting!
I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THE REFLECTORS…MAY THE FIRST CAN’T COME SOON ENOUGH!!!
Sometimes the ‘adventure’ is right on your property.
Sometimes you’ll have to walk a ways.
Sometimes you won’t have to.
Today was one of those ‘won’t have to’ days. There was a lovely puddle, and the green grass was wet and crisp- instead of soggy. 😀 And I was barefoot. Now, I wasn’t born a country-girl. But maybe we can say I’m adopted? The city isn’t for me.
p.s. I try not to use my big zoom lens (300mm) too often because the pictures seem to be less high quality than when I use my 50mm. But all of these were 300mm except the water drops. Wouldn’t want to disturb God’s creation! 😛
Today I am sharing some of my recentest photography from five stages of a day.
Day, Golden Hour (2nd), Twilight, Sunset, and Night.
I am excited to be finally doing a ‘stages of the day’ post. So here we go.
p.s. This isn’t the kind of post I can keep to my ‘just 5 pictures’ rule. 😀
Back to the normal digital photos!
Just a few quick golden hour photos with my sis Ellie 🙂 .
So twilight sort of gives you a blueish lighting. It’s between golden hour and sunset. You’d be surprised at how fast it comes after golden hour and then how fast sunset runs on the heels of twilight!
This is legit guys, not a white balance problem.
I have sunsets from two days. They are extremely different from one another. The first is fiery and cloudy (right after a tornado warning came for our area!), and the second is what I call “rainbow lighting”.
And that is a wrap!
Don’t go yet…
I have a surprise for you…
That cute, furry little (gulp) guy was found in one of the bedrooms. He was so HUGE. And scary. And hairy…ew. 😛
