(At least a) Photo a Day
On April 13, 2013, I attended the Harrisburg Camera Club's Light and Creativity workshop. John Barclay's afternoon presentation, "Imagine, Create, Believe," was a call to action for all budding (and perhaps seasoned) photographers to keep producing work that you love, to not give up, and most of all, to put your own unique vision into your work. The presentation was a pep talk I needed to hear, and so inspiring was it, that I've decided to take on a one-year project of producing a photo a day regardless of how I may feel, of what the weather is like or any one of a hundred excuses I make for myself to justify not going out with my camera. So, on this blog, I'm going to produce (at least) one photo a day for the next year. Joining the camera club has helped me grow as a photographer, and this should help even more.

I used my extension tubes for the first time today. This morning's shots were very soft. I tried again this afternoon using a more stable setup and different light. Focusing is still an issue, but I think this is an improvement over this morning's attempts. I was more successful shooting coins probably because they are flat and depth of field isn't such an issue. This shot with the 12mm tube. Tomorrow I'm going to find some natural material and try the 20mm.

I was on my way to meet friends and desperate for a photo. The clouds were very Maxfield Parish looking, so I drove around trying to capture them unobstructed by buildings and such. What I found instead on the back side of the shopping center where we were to meet, looked very much to me like a prison...

I had intended to do some night photography this evening, but the temps are in the teens with gusty winds, and I just can't bear to go out again. So, I played with the D7000's high ISO capabilities and got a fairly sharp image of this glass. Also played with the adjustment brush in Lightroom to try to eliminate the window screen behind the glass. A learning day.
