Or, it may have been before… I forget. This was one of the sexy ladies in the burlesque troop I did a few shows with back in New Mexico. The exposure in here was hard – and I didn’t get a nice clear focus either. Still cool because of the subject, I think.
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!
