Day 29 – Work to a deadline

October 19, 2009 Leave a comment


So todays image is of a water drop. After yesterdays post about not being in a rush I thought what if I was under orders to get a job done. I gave myself 45 minutes to setup, shoot and edit an image today. I’ve shot drop before so the setup was familiar but it was still a bit of a push to get theĀ  images made in the time allowed. This was the image I liked the most.

Manual Reading

I had a quick read the rest of page 34, Holding the camera.

Professional Photographers Images Studied

I must admit I spent more time trying to remember my old flickr account than studying todays photographer. Today I very quickly looked through some of the work of Joey Lawrence.

Day 18 – A drop in the sink

October 8, 2009 Leave a comment


I tried a bit of water drop photography today but I wasn’t that happy with the results. The task was performed in the kitchen sink and involved a bit of mopping up afterward. I tried this water drop photography about 2 years ago when I first got my hands on a camera and I was much more impressed with the results I got then. I seem to be going backwards with this not improving.

Manual Reading

I’m continuing on with white balance and today read page 66, Custom Whit Balance. I use this when I’m practicing product photography and sometimes if I’m doing some still life stuff without flash and have a mixture of different ambient light types. That’s not very often though.

Professional Photographers Images Reviewed

I kind of just happened to do this today without any planning. I was looking in the phone book for physio and what happed to be on the opposite page but photographer listings. Before I knew it I had forgotten about the physio and was on my iphone browsing the websites of some of the photographers. I’m not going to name them as to be honest I don’t know how some of them get any clients with their site or even lack there of. There’s hope for me yet if.
