Another day of self portrait shots. This time I was working indoors and experimenting with using a flash and adjusting the aperture and shutter speed to reduce the flash wash out. It took a lot of trial and error and I tried on most of my closet in outfits, but I liked this shot the best. Hopefully this will make me more comfortable in front of the camera. I think by the time I got to this shot I was starting to have fun.
Since it's day 100 I wanted the picture to be special and decided to wait till dusk and try to get a photo of the sunset. Suddenly wishing for fewer trees in the Metro so I could actually SEE the horizon. I drove west and north and luckily happened upon a lake that was big enough to give a view of the sunset and it was beautiful.
Warm and muggy today. My camera lens kept fogging up on me, so the shots I thought I was going to like this morning were not as good as hoped. This lilly pad and water lilly shot was the best one of the non- foggy ones.
Hopkins Raspberry Festival Grand Day Parade today. I liked several of the shots I got today. Had a great spot to get pictures. I liked this one because of the perspective of the long line of firetrucks.
Wow I made 3 months. Today we had torrential rain storms. And as I was looking out the window this morning I decided to try different settings on my camera to see if I could catch the rain drops on the street. As you can see they were very large drops and were hitting the street so hard the bounced back up.
Today there was a wedding party that came to our building (Guthrie) to take photos. It was rather windy out this afternoon and the buildings help accentuate it too. These little flowers girls arrived and in addition to the wind, they were constantly moving and bouncing around in front of the window. From where I was on the 2nd floor I couldn't get a clear shot with out the structure beam in the way, but as one of my co-workers mentioned "they look like little cotton balls blowing around in the wind". They were so cute.
