Day 43 – Crazy experimentation

I go through phases of making abstract images. I have no idea why I liked this one but I do. Let’s call it “Dawn over Mars”.

I decided to do a bit of brushing up on the subject of off camera flash so spent some time going through The Hot Shoe Diaries by Joe McNally. Stunning stuff. Now to find a willing model so I can try some of it out!

Day 4

September 24, 2009 Leave a comment


I had intended to get out to take a few landscape photos this evening but yet again work got in the way.  So yet again I resorted to the back garden to provide me with an image.

Little did I know that the plant I have hated the most would be the one I would turn my attention too. I figured that there must be something about this plant that I like. We inherited this plant with the house when we bought it about two years ago. I had been meaning to dump it but never got around to it. Just as well I didn’t.

Now if only I could pick which version I prefer (see below). Which do you think looks better?

Manual Reading

Today I read about creating folders on the memory card p72 and p73. Even after reading it it’s not something I think I will use. I can see how it might be useful but for now I’ll just stick to the default.

Today I was examining the work of George Barr. I think this may be the reason I took a picture of the cordiline plant in the way I did.
