So I still haven't braved manual. I have stuff to read up on, but for some reason I haven't braved it. Yes, I know. Man up and do it. I will say I've been venturing outside my comfort areas lately, so that's a start, right? I've also been playing with some creative edits and having fun. Maybe manual can be my adventure for while Ryan's home, so when I get frustrated he can re-focus me. hehe Even with sticking in my cameras pre-set modes, I've managed to do a lot of fun little things.
Well, let's start at Day 1 of my 365project for reference:
Go figure...I buy a spiffy new camera and...it's gloomy and rainy for a week afterwards!
This was the first photo that seemed to get a load of attention. I was rather proud of it, and it definitely was nice to get feedback.
This is the topped ranked photo of mine on my project. I definitely think the meaning I attached to it of leaving your mark on the people you meet helped it's popularity. I've also found a niche for using my camera to help portray a cause of acceptance.
I have an insane love for macro shots...
One of my recent favs. Straight out of the camera. Loved how it came out.
And lately I've gone outside my box a bit. Still hugging the wall, but it's progress.
The two rainbow ones are straight out of the camera. The one of Alison is playing with some edits.
I'm still having fun. I do like finding new things to photograph, and I've learned that what I think looks cool won't always be what is popular, cool, or "right." It's definitely a project and adventure for "me." Sometimes I do still need to remind myself of that though.
