I took this guy when I noticed the nice light as I was starting my homework. Also, I had inadvertently set up my stuff in an aesthetically pleasing way so it looks nice I think.
extra don’t be mad @ me I totally forgot today. I was out of the house all day and I forgot my camera so whoops
I like today’s because in order to photograph this really small bud with macro, I used the reverse lens macro technique (aka taking off the lens and holding it backwards to the camera). It was a little tricky than I anticipated because the lens isn’t connected to the camera, so you have to do all of the work yourself. To focus you can only move forward and backward. Another problem was light- having the lens backwards makes light trickier. I shot with an f/8 in order to have a large enough depth of field. This I made the photo super dark until I cranked up the ISO to like 1250 and made the shutter speed relatively slow. The bud doesn’t look that small in the photo, so I included a photo for scale below.
Shot around 4:09. I have been shooting earlier and earlier if you haven’t noticed so that I don’t have the chance to over think it too much. I like this one, it isn’t perfect ( a few reflections are left in the glass) but it is 1000000x better than the original (see below). If I have time later I will try and make the background totally white rather than very faint blue. Also the bottom right corner is bothering me but I don’t want to deal with it right now.
I am still mad that you aren’t commenting.
I think this one is my official picture of the day. Even though it isn’t composed perfectly and it is ever so slightly out of focus, I really like the comforting vibe it gives off. I am really happy with this one, actually. I like the perspective and the candidness and it makes me happy to look at.
I also really like this one (besides Cate’s weird face) because of the composition & the light. I like the line of the stairs in the back and I like the busyness of the setting & the wood background. I wish I had sat a few feet to the left so the perspective would be more even but what can you do. Again, it isn’t perfect but I still really like how it came out.
Here are some bonus pictures of my beautiful friends
