One photo a day challenge: Day 202. Tonight I went outside tonight to photograph some flowers in the low light. I had an idea of what flowers I wanted to photograph. There were a few I hadn’t photographed at night much if at all. The goal was to focus on those ones. Other than that I wasn’t really sure how I was going to proceed. Look through the lens and let the… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 200. Sometimes we are fortunate enough to be able to photograph subjects we weren’t expecting. It is a great feeling to have the opportunity to be able to create beautiful images of subjects we weren’t even looking for. I am not often presented with the opportunity to photograph snakes. But it is always nice when such opportunities turn out so nicely.
One photo a day challenge: Day 182. I finally got around to planting some flowers we had picked up. I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to do with them. So for now they are each in randomly selected pots. As you can probably tell by now if you have been on this blog before, I enjoy photographing flowers. There was one flower from this newest batch that I particularly wanted… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 180. Earlier this evening it rained. I was surprised that when I went outside around 9 PM there were still water droplets on the flowers. I wasn’t sure what I was going to photograph. As I looked around I examined the flowers and eventually noticed the tiny things. I did not expect to end up trying to photography tiny spiders on the flowers. It was a… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 175. Today I ended up going out to photograph flowers at night. I knew that daisies had started blooming recently. I thought it might be interesting to photograph a nice bright white daisy against a dark background. Using a small light outside I illuminated the flowers. I went out into the yard to have a look. I did find daisies to photograph. And I think I… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 160. Spent a little time photographing the trees here in New York. This tree was growing just outside the edge of the forest. In one shot I could compose an image that included the tree trunk, the edge of the forest, and the bright opening of a clearing in the background. I like how the tree trunk is half in shadow on one side. The dark… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 155. I love observing new growth coming in on plants. The way the foliage sprouts and unfurls. Creating new shapes that change over time. The leaves emerge as one color. Then there is a subtle shift in color as they grow and age. Eventually the leaves develop into the green we see on most trees. I am not sure what type of tree this is. 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 139. Today I had no real plan for my photography. I just wanted to get outside. Wander around. Look at nature. See what looks interesting to photograph. I didn’t know what I would be photographing. To give myself the most opportunities for creating images it made sense to use my most versatile lens. I took my 60mm f2.8 macro lens. I started off photographing some of… 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.
