365 Day Project: 51

Ugh, the snow…and snow…AND MORE SNOW! Ran errands, took the kid to work and shoveled the walks. I was happy to make an image with this cute little guy wearing oversized glasses. He’s literally 1/2″ tall and I had the most difficult time getting my cell phone to focus on him. I’ve learned where I take photos here at the kitchen table the lights cause yellowing in the photos. Even though I edit a lot of that out I need to really devote some time to figuring out lighting tricks and extras. The custom color palette is listed below from left to right. Happy Wednesday!

365 Day Project: 50

Wow! Day 50 leaving 315 days left. I would like to say that I’m improving but I’m also biased and to close to the project (any feedback from fellow cell phone photographers would be greatly appreciated). So, we have another snow system moving in tomorrow and then another one over the weekend so that would make it snow storm #455ninerWTF! I’m trying to get used to finding obsolete objects or figure to photograph with not being able to drive around and scout a location.

Tonight I chose the VW van toy car and took it outside while the snow and ice melted in certain areas of the driveway. The image SCREAMED for me to use a grainy retro filter and I think it’s the cutest thing ever! I wish I had thought to grab my micro lens but I had a difficult time getting my cell phone camera to focus on the car by itself. I know if I had a lens there was no way I could have gotten a decent focus.

My daughter had a really good idea after I lit a candle and I wish I had worked more with the angle of the cell phone. It was a tight squeeze with the candle, incense burner, and the shadow. I wanted to try my hand at another dramatically edited image and this was a great opportunity. I’m REALLY happy with the final image.

365 Day Project: 44

So I thought that I would try another action figure for today’s photo. None of my dogs wanted to cooperate and look like they were trying to eat the toy. Instead, it looks like the Fortnite figure, Ragnarok (I just learned the name) is sneaking up on Dublin (yup actual doggy name). Now I think the name of the character is fitting. This made my day just that much better and the atmosphere from work disappear. I need more figures and ideas. Hit the coffee button so I can get more figures and gear for photos this year. I have the T Rex and the VW van so ideas would be greatly appreciated too. I need to look into easy mobile lighting gear for on the go with the cell to better light some of my shots. Hex codes for a semi-complimentary color palette are listed below from left to right. Happy Wednesday Y’all.

365 Day Project: 43

I didn’t want to do my photo for today. When I got home I had a meltdown explaining to my husband everything that happened. And forget about driving around tonight scouting for a place due to polar bear conditions. I just wanted to climb in bed and hide for a week. But I introduce Gato’s first appearance in my 365 Day Project. This was taken without a macro filter but I think next time I’ll try it. The background was supposed to be a goldfish wallpaper but unfortunately, my phone would let me focus on both Gato and the background. I don’t think this turned out so bad after all. What do you think?

I like the complementary color palette I was able to get out of this photo. Hex codes are #1730BF, #1F3A8C, #11D9D9, #D9BE36, E3DC7B

I don’t know why tonight was so difficult? I couldn’t concentrate on my end goal. I have been running around trying to get everything in order for the storm coming in tonight and after work hours stress could also have something to do with it. My husband was patient with me as we drove around trying to find something that piqued my interest. Then we both saw the shadows from the fencing and the light and thought it would be perfect. What do y’all think? The hex codes for an awesome ‘twilight’ feel for this analogous color palette is listed below from left to right as always.

365 Day Project: 41

I’ve been busy since Saturday morning and looks like there isn’t any slowing down into next week. Add ANOTHER snowstorm on top of everything just adds more time for things to get done. My photo for today was actually taken last night. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of trying my hand at both dark photography and fire. I couldn’t get the streaks of flames to happen even after working with the pro settings in my phone.

This was taken at the Disting event that my husband, son and I attended and I’m glad that we did. More on that later, I’m tired and will be catching up on comments and emails in the morning. Have a great and safe evening Y’all.

ANOTHER WINTER WEATHER WARNING! This time it was more sleet and icy rain than snow. I would take the snow ANY day and then tonight the temperatures are going to plummet again. This means that anything that is left on the road that is melted it’ll turn to ice. Add the temperatures being below 0° salt will not work. I know rambling but this only means that the roads are dangerous and I can’t scout a new building or subject so I had to creative here at the house.

I found it only fitting that when I asked my son for one of his action figures that he brought the snow yeti creature. PERFECT! I used a macro external lens and let me tell you, I can’t wait to work with this more in the spring. I took almost 100 different photos and found this one to be oddly mesmerizing. It’s like the yeti was caught in his natural habitat and with the little twiggy vine almost makes it seem like I was intrusive. What do you think?

I think I’ll also pick up a few action figures of my own for backups throughout the year. Yes? No?

Today’s subject isn’t all that interesting but I enjoyed playing with perspective and composition in this image. I kept the rule of thirds in mind and tried to get the bus to lead the eye towards the doors. I edited the image for a little more dramatic flair and was pleased with what I was able to achieve and all with a smartphone. The hex codes for the complementary color palette are listed below from left to right as always. Have a great evening, guys.
