One photo a day challenge: Day 149. Cosmos are some of my favorite flowers to photograph. I love the texture of the petals. They are so soft and silky looking. Then there is the coarse nature of the center of the flower. Especially as the flower matures. Each segment of the flower’s center sprouts on its own. There is always the contrast between the center that is yellow and the petals that… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 148. I have always shoed away from buying new gadgets or gear for my photography. I only bought gear that I had a plan for how I would actually use it. Even if it was something I wouldn’t use all the time. I want to have a plan for all the tools in my bag. A use case. I want to know under what circumstances I… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 147. After a day being out and about creating photography I kept my photography at home today. Yesterday my main goal was to focus ion the animal kingdom as photography subjects. Today I brought the focus back to the flowers on our deck. It was getting late evening. The sun was getting low. I was studying the flowers. Looking to see how the light was hitting… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 144. Today I sat in a field of grass. I looked around. There were several different types of wildflowers growing in the grassy field. I noticed that the wildflowers were growing in a particular way. Each kind of wildflower was growing almost completely separate from the other types of wildflowers. And each type of wildflower was itself growing in clusters. There was a large section of… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 141. Spent some time just sitting in a field again. Sat. Patiently waiting. Studying the tiny flowers. Looking for just the right angle. I don’t actually remember creating this image. But I love how the flower is framed by the blades of grass.
One photo a day challenge: Day 140. Today I took my macro lens with me and sat in a field. I looked around at a field of grass and selected a spot that looked like it had potential for photographs. This area had some small flowers blooming and some sticks and other random bits of nature lying about. I sat down with my camera and a book. Alternating between reading and taking… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 136. It has been a parade of flowers at our house now that it has finally warmed up and stayed warm. I love flowers. They really brighten up the environment. They are also great photography subject. Not only do flowers make you feel better and help with creativity they also do double duty. Flowers are great photography subjects. And flowers also attract great photography subjects. That… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 134: A little bit of night time. A little bit of lighting. A little bit of blue flowers. A little bit close up. A little bitty f-stop.
One photo a day challenge: Day 132. I continue to surprise myself as I have found inspiration to try new things with my photography during this challenge. I have always considered myself a natural light photographer. Not a lot of my photography uses light sources other than the available light outdoors or in a room if I am indoors. Three things have led me to trying new things in my photography: Having… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 130: I went out for a short bird watching walk today. I was hoping to have a nice bird photo to share today. I did see some of the White-Crowned Sparrows again. No really nice photos were achieved and no other birds I was hoping for made an appearance. So for todays photo sessions it goes like this: There is a frost warning tonight. I had… Read More
