This week I took the opportunity to focus on improving my photography skills. Specifically how to work with shadows and light, and how to tell my camera to focus on me and not my surroundings. Most of my photographs are self-taken by me, unless I happen to be out and about with a member of my family, using a Nikon D3300 camera with a tripod and wireless remote.
So let's see how this week fared. I'll share a few thoughts about each day and there's all the garment information with a few more details on the link under each individual picture.
Day 8 was Mother's Day and no photo was taken that day. Oops. First day so far missing a photo, so that's really not bad for me. Enjoyed a low-key day with my family spent mostly in handmade comfy clothes.
On Day 9, dressed in clothes so old and worn I save for cleaning, spent a few minutes fooling around with my camera's settings in our back woods before working around the house. Later this day I was shocked to find the photo made flickr's Explore page! This photo was straight out of the camera. No photo editing was done, other than cropping into a square. I was pleased to find the right camera settings for the shadows of our woods and figure out where to stand in the filtered light.
