This month I decided that I was going to take the challenge offered by Willette and use it as an opportunity to improve my photography and see if I cannot become more adept at using my camera and amazing lens. I am going to try to do this class/project without using my children once as the subject for the homework even if they fit the type of homework assignment
Today’s prompt is:
St. Patrick’s Day is all about the wearin’ o’ the green these days! Green is all over the place today as we celebrate Saint Patrick and being Irish. You can also see green when you look out your window at the new buds forcing their way up.
There were photography tips as well as ways to try to photograph what may be the answer to the prompt! So I will add the pictures here and then the information for the photo and why I choose this as my answer to the prompt. Oh yeah and for the first time ever I am going to intentionally edit the photos before I put them here…I know no more straight out of the camera, I am running a risk!
My green photos:
Photo settings: indoor, on camera flash, f/5.6, 1/125th ss, ISO 200
Photo settings: indoor, on camera flash, f/5.6, 1/125th ss, ISO 200 (vivid color edit)
I have been dying to take this picture, except I wanted to do it as a rainbow. I am a sewer (more on that another day) and I love the way my thread looks when it is all together like a rainbow. I probably have 40 different shades of green and I thought you know what while I am taking green pictures this would work and be a lot of fun to set up. Set up was great! I got to use the creative aspects of me but the pictures are still not the pictures I hoped to take. I think I took almost 100 pictures trying to get the picture in my head, instead I gave up with one that I loved but was not what was in my head.
Today’s photography lesson, have an idea in your head but ALWAYS be willing to change it! That is kind of like parenting! I have to change that up all the time as well to keep the twins on their toes hehe I never thought I would learn the same lesson in photography as I did in parenting
