There’s a baseball game happening and when I went out to catch a photo for tonight I was a little bummed. We have a storm moving in and the field lights drowned out the storm clouds. I drove to a seasonal drive-in style diner and the sky still didn’t show up. I think I need to look up some more tutorials for lighting and clouds.
I didn’t know what else to take a picture of and how do you make something as mundane as shopping racks look like a decent photo? I tried playing with the perspective of different elements in the photo such as lights, floor and clothes and still using a rule of thirds. You know what I learned? That’s difficult but I’m super happy with the results.
I took it easy on myself today and almost fell asleep when I remembered I didn’t post the image for today. I have come 84 days now without missing a day and I’m not about to start now. I may do it a few minutes before the midnight deadline with only sparse copy but I made it (I’ll usually go back and edit the next day).
Today’s photo was done and to tell you the truth I have NO IDEA what these little guys are. My husband got them for me (it was a mystery box type of thing) and reassured me that they have been around for a while in the TMNT world. I’ll take his word for it as I’m more of a Batman girl.
After a beautifully anxious night, we decided to stop for breakfast and my husband pulled this little guy from his pocket. I almost wanted to give the project up for today and rest but he pushed me in the right direction. The lost kitty looks like he’s contemplating a great deal sitting on toast with grape jelly below.
I’m posting this from our Ostara celebration and I’ll fill in the information tomorrow. I’m glad to post my photo.
Last night was so much fun. I really wanted to try and take a decent picture of the fire spinning. I think I should have adjusted my ISO and maybe held the phone more still. I really need to get a tripod or Gorillapod for the phone. It was awesome last night but that’s for a different post. I tried to frame the image following the rule of thirds.
I don’t know what’s going on with WordPress. First my comments then I’m not able to view certain blogs in my reader section for a few days then they appear. It’s so frustrating. Tonight’s photo is brought to you by the toys at the self-checkout and my son choosing one. I think this is supposed to be one of the evil Siamese cats from Disney’s Lady and the Tramp. Now that the errands are finished and he’s tucked away eating ice cream I can get this posted and try to figure out what to dish to make to pass. Happy Friday Y’all!
I went outside! Then the wind was all, ‘Nah girl. I’m fixin’ to make it unbearably cool and knock over your toy.’ I found the perfect location. A drain with water running in it had the light on it and it looked great. That wind made it chilly and it was powerful enough to keep knocking over the figure. I didn’t want to chance losing it down the drain. I made a promise to my son that he can have ALL the toys and legos after the project was over. Secretly, I’ve been giving some to him so my husband doesn’t notice a slew of toys.
Tonight’s post is a bit late. I took my husband to the library to get his card. There I learned that they put puzzles together in their free time. I had a wonderful idea that would help me cope with my past but that will be for another post. Tonight’s photo is of a character figure that my son threw in my purse and I discovered it. Sitting there…begging for a photo-op.
Well…I’m hosting a ‘boys’ night. My son has a friend over, do boy things, and eat pizza. I’ll leave out the burping contest winning results (you’ll thank me). I thought it would be a great time to pull out a ninja turtle. I can do better but I thought this was cute.
I’m getting a little frustrated with WordPress and the comment section. My comments are not showing that I have them but my email is. WP is aware but not going to hold my breath on the issue being completely fixed anytime soon. Today’s photo was actually taken yesterday. I just wanted to post the kitty with the books. There was no flash used but the light from the morning sun coming in made it seem like there was. I think I was able to capture an ‘Ireland-esque’ feel for the color palette. I was really trying to capture perspective but also an image with a focal point that draws the eye. I like it but think I can do better.
Last night my husband and I were invited out to drink at several St. Paddy’s night events. As usual, we opted out because we are getting old and drinking all night isn’t as appealing as when we were young. This morning however I had made plans to have a traditional Irish breakfast with another couple that would include the ‘Dublin Bloody Mary.’ We showed up, got a message that they weren’t going to make it. I’m just going to leave out the weak explanation. My husband and I enjoyed a great breakfast but the cancel (4th time in a row) put me in a bummer mood.
For today’s photo, I decided on happy upbeat colors and decided books for the happy reading lost kitty would be great. And since I had such a heavy breakfast I’m off to make a salad. Happy Sunday Y’all!
This morning was mine and my son’s ‘coffee date’. This is where he gets hot chocolate and I get coffee. He was a little disappointed that I told him, ‘no toys’ as I wanted to try my hand at a ‘moody’ coffee photo or as I just learned, ‘lifestyle’ photography. I need more practice. But the barista did awesome making this look yummy.
I waited until after Friday errands to take and post the photo and I wish I hadn’t. I feel like I’m being rushed and I can’t figure out why. Tonight’s post was taken while we were out for dinner before going to the grocery store. I have a coffee date with my son in the morning then shopping for a painting project for the kiddos at our kindred’s Ostar celebration, so I’ll be busy. Pretty sure my project photo will be late tomorrow. Here we are lost kitties racing. I’m enjoying the bright color palette that these lost kitties figures offer.
I think my moods are definitely affecting my images. Or, it could be a few minutes of sunshine and warm weather. Either way, I’m feeling positive and REALLY hopeful I will land this job. It’s such a positive work environment and there’s actual teamwork! But let me get back on track, tonight’s image is of me taking advantage of the melting snow and HUGE puddles forming. Luckily, I had just the little toy figure to use. With the color palette, I was trying to capture happy or warm colors with a bright cooler hue. I was even able to capture falling water!
I didn’t do much in the styling of this picture. There’s much more to it than the legos that were put together. This is what it looks like when I’m functioning with anxiety and depression all while trying to seem like everything is OK. I tried to do some editing and even like the grainy vintage effect that I was able to achieve. The complimentary palette almost translates Harry Potter but not quite.
Is anyone else thrown off by daylight savings time? Or do you even participate in daylight savings in your neck of the woods? I brought a figure to work with all intentions of taking my photo early but it never made it out my bag. Tonight’s photo is more or less a kitchen helper image. I do, however, feel I need to step up my game so I’ll be doing some research into photography tips and tricks to really make the images pop. I’ve been proud so far of the photos that I’ve been able to capture but feel I can do more.
Today was a busy day for a Sunday but that’s for a different post. Today’s image is of a new art medium I’m wanting to get better at…Henna. I went the black and white route for this one because it seems to suit the image subject better. I’m running late posting this. Thanks, daylight savings time (that was pure sarcasm).
I have been super lazy. Well, I did get on the treadmill so that counts for something. This weather maker moving in is making everything dark and gloomy out and I’ve opted for looking up lego sets. My wishlist item is Hogwarts Castle 71043. Love love LOVE this set and I need the challenge and the calming effect building these sets have.
Today with it being dark I thought I would play more with lighting and using candles. My son was kind enough to let me borrow his lost kitty wizard for today’s photo. I think I’m really going outside my comfort zone and learning more aspects of lighting and trying tricks photographers would try. Thinking outside the box has been a comfort and to tell you the truth I’m going to need another 365 Day project to complete when the year is up.
I would like my local weatherman to stop using the words, ‘weather maker.’ I’m now fully annoyed with these words as there is another winter storm moving in. Yet again. Trying to get Saturday errands all done on a Friday when I’m already exhausted from work and trying to help my son feel better was just a lot to tackle. Sadly, my husband and I might have to cancel plans with the kindred tomorrow due to road conditions. But, here we are and I felt like doing some experimenting with light. I love the effect the candle gave the Roblox blacksmith. What do you think?
Today I was SLAMMED with work. It was almost as if they wanted to stress. Instead, I let it pile up as they intended, told them it will get done when it gets done, and focused on tasks at hand. I had my phone interview after work. I don’t think I will move on in the process due to my lack of skill being used where I’m at now but I’m ok with that. Tonight, I was super happy with the playful photo of the lost kitty toy. Unfortunately, the ice, snow, and windchill temps are making driving difficult. Tomorrow is going to be super busy but let us start with tonight’s photo.
The color palette I chose is obviously a custom one but how wonderfully summer-ish bright the colors are!
