Last year, at the most inopportune time, my camera died and with the help of a very good friend, a professional photographer to boot, I bought a new fancy camera. But I must admit that I have not used it to it's full potential, heck I probably haven't even used an eighth of it's potential.
So this past week when I was blog hopping for the Build your Blog hop I ran across a photographers blog and discovered Scavenger Hunt Sunday. To me this was a great opportunity to stretch my horizons and hopefully learn something new.
So without further ado, here are my entries for the 1/27 Scavenger Hunt.
This is a shot of a roll of Rhinestones that I have, I cropped in close using photoshop but didn't alter the colors in any way.
Meet my Studio Cat, Sugar. I went back and forth about this photo, keeping the wood frame in or not, I really like the black behind her, don't know how that happened. To me this shot is pretty but I know it shows how much of an armature I am, just don't know how to fix that.
Okay, I must have taken a billion fabric pictures. And I wasn't pleased with any of them. I wanted to show off all the different patterns and textures but really all I ended up with was a mess. I selected this one because I cast a shadow on the lower left hand side and because of the black hole in the upper right. This shot was taken at close range into a drawer full of fabrics.
Close up of a bunch of lace bits that I have in a box, color enhanced in photoshop.
This was my favorite shot to take and the most difficult for me to choose from. To me the collection this week is all about texture so I went with a close up from a pile of wood we have outside. I love how the evening light turned the wood a bluish hue.
I'm not sure I learned anything this week, I really just went out and took pictures. Please feel free to criticize/critique my photo's I want to get better. I did have fun and plan to participate as much as I can.
