Day 3 – Reload

My hard drive has been failing for quite a while.  I finally got around to getting a new and I am in the fun process of rebuilding from a backup.  I do like Windows 7 for the record, but my primary system is a Fedora version of Linux.

Once again this is a picture that I am not thrilled with the focus it does not seem as sharp as it ought to be.  I do like the angles and how I used the rule of thirds in a diagonal.  the color contrast is nice as well.  I used a speed light and a 8.5X11 piece of paper to create some fill light on the right side.

Day 2 – So Behind

I have a couple of projects that I am working on, and I am behind on most of them.  This is my workbench that I am trying to build my own spider lights.  Things are a little chaotic as you can see.

Looking at it there is not much I don’t like about it.  I feel like it tells the story I want, the colors are right, there are great details. the lighting is ok.

Day 1 – The Beginning

Like all journeys this one has a beginning.  This one started in Logan as I went to take pictures in honor of my one year anniversary of getting my Nikon D40.  While I was there Belinda said you need to do a 365 challenge with me.  I wanted to but was unsure.  I took this picture of the sushi just in case I decided that I was going to go through with it.

I arranged the food and cleared the table of things I could see through the view finder, and snapped off a couple of shots.  After adjusting the white balance I liked the color.  I like the lines and and the angles.  I wish the shadows weren’t so harsh.  I Macgyvered a couple of things with this shot.  I used a chopstick wrapper as a flash diffuser (to try and soften the shadows and add some fill) and used a napkin (clean of course) as a “gray” card to set the WB.
