Day 250 – Light The Eyes

One of my photography superheros catch phrases is light the eyes. He would find the same problems with this picture that I do (probably more), but I lit the eyes.

<55mm f/22 1/125s one speedlight into umbrella directly overhead

Day 237 – FauxDR

You know not quite HDR. This is really an attempt to learn masking I need all the practice I can get. So no it is not the greatest picture ever. It is practice.

This is a combination of 2 different shutter speed @ f/22

Day 236 – I Am Blessed

No, not because of this stupid dog, jeesh what’s wrong with you.

Here’s the story. I had just finished my last stock photography class and was driving home thinking about photography. In my musing I realized how blessed I was that I never have to pick up a camera if I did not want to and was patting myself on the back. Well, just as I got home I realized I had to take a picture today. So I forced myself to pick up the camera and get a picture for today maybe not my best work, but probably not my worst either.

I thought it was funny.

Day 233 – Can’t Fight City Hall

Especially when it looks like a place that vampires live, and I mean the real vampires; not the sparkly kind care about your feelings losers.

Our neighbor had her wedding reception here and it was late so I grabbed a picture. And yes it was hand held.

26mm 1/1.8s (8/10ths of a second f/5.6 ISO 800

Day 189 – Let Your Light Shine

I spent all day trying to think of an idea, and by the time I came up with something I didn’t have the time to put it together like I would have liked. I think I will revisit this shot again soon.


42mm f/7.1 1/20s

As a little contest. The first person that can spot and comment what the thing that bugs me the most about this picture gets a cookie from My Dough Girl.

Day 188 – Tastes Better

Than I was able to capture here. I wish I was able to snap my fingers, and have the skills that others have spent years perfecting 🙂 I thought that this looked great, my eyes lied the camera didn’t. So I will just say it tasted great.

32mm f/5 1/200s
