Happy Tuesday! I took advantage of my day off yesterday to get some shooting in. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to! There was too much winter-dead stuff outside, so I stayed indoors and shot some still-life. I love using prop items that I’ve received as gifts because they remind me of the wonderful people in my life. I received the vase from my son and daughter-in-law in a gift basket with other items as a ‘thank you’ after their wedding. That was thoughtful of them! Although that day WAS all about them, they realized it took a lot of time and effort from everyone else, so their ‘thank you’ meant a lot! The doily was made from a dear friend of my Mother’s that I haven’t seen in years. She gave us this doily along with a few others for our wedding (SO many years ago!) It was good to think of her as I captured this shot.
Hope you all have a terrific day! Do or learn something NEW!
I’ll link to Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday
Happy Tuesday! Here’s my Tuesday Texture. I’ll link up to Kim Klassen’s today. Here’s the full quote version:
Have a GREAT day! Do or Learn something NEW.
Hello! Well, I FINALLY did it! I’ve been wanting to start experimenting with textures via Kim Klassen’s site for quite a few weeks now, but life is busy, ya know!?!. But today I actually downloaded some free textures that she offers (Thank you Kim!) and watched her tutorial and created the photo above. I think I’ll be hooked now! So many of my online friends are taking her classes and I can’t wait to join in the fun.
I’ll be sharing this at Texture Tuesday at Kim’s site. So fun!
Have a great day! Do or Learn something NEW!
I recently read this article titled, “The Photography Tips that 96 Photographers Wish They Would’ve Learned Sooner” and I thought there were some really good ideas in it. I’ve been known to ‘Go out shooting’ and hope something would pop out and inspire me. But today, I tried to implement Lesson #1 from the article. I envisioned this shot, planned and then created it. You’ll probably find this shocking, but it wasn’t raining today….I spritzed the window with water from a spray bottle! Before I read this article, I might have felt like that was cheating! 🙂
Next, I’ll have to work on Lesson #2, because I could REALLY get better at reading my histogram.
Have a great day! Do or learn something NEW!
