Day 4: Simplicity

Sometimes getting the focus sharp and cutting out all the crap really makes an image pop. This one looks so ethereal. Plus it's a crapper- fun!
Sometimes getting the focus sharp and cutting out all the crap really makes an image pop. I’d like my focus to have been sharper on the wood…I should have brought my tripod. This one looks so ethereal. Plus it’s a crapper- fun!

Day 1: Picture-a-Day Nyx and Her Bone

February 1

Here’s the start of a great year where I learn all of the technical stuff I’ve been too lazy to focus on. I finally came to the realization that you can have a great artistic eye, but you still have to be a bit of a nerd and learn all of the capabilities of your tools to be a good photographer. Same with painting- I have to slow down, read books, and practice. Here goes!

I took this in our living room. It was tough getting an exposure for the bright spot, my camera wanted to equalize the lights and darks. But, I only shoot manual because that’s the only way to learn!
