It is pretty amazing how many photos it took before I figured out how to capture the lens flare AND keep the exposure light enough to see the leaves. I’d like to see it a little brighter still, but love the beautiful golden color + light. I’m a-lernin.
Our house is dim, and we have old light fixtures that barely give off enough light to see. I had to crank up the ISO for this, and it got a little too grainy. It’s still cute, though.
Or roof. It’s the skylight in our house. It took me quite a few shots to get this right, I wanted a balance of total black in the shadows and enough clarity to see the texture of the wall. I got one flooded out shot that looks like the tunnel you are supposed to see when you die…I like this one, though, it’s got a depressing air about it, like being trapped in a mineshaft.
I decided this every single day shit was a little too much with a job and a half already. So, I am not going to worry too much about whether I get a shot every single day. I will just do as well as I can. I have been shooting at least every other day, which is way more than I started out with. So, yeah, not going to beat myself up about it too hard.
