Panasonic Lumix dmc-fz1000. Excited to learn to use this baby! I have the advanced features owner’s manual, but if anyone has advice, other learning avenues I should explore let me know. Herewith, you have permission to nag me to practice and before long share some photos 🙂
I’ve many more photos of BIG: redwoods, grand canyon, white rock, Eiffel Tower, snake, shoes, waterfalls
It will be good for me to get more pics organized and accessible and make duplicates and duds disappear. Does anyone else have a photo clutter problem?
Today, for these assignments, I was able to get out into my gardens with the sun shining down from the southwest and lots of opportunities to look from different perspectives at my plants as they get ready for springtime. It was also a good time to play with the way light and shadows affect my garden features as they present themselves in early spring and to find “warmth” in the light, although it is not yet warm weather time here. I also went back to some photos I’ve taken in past because I liked what I saw — not necessarily because I knew what I was doing 🙂
So I give you Day 8 – Natural World:
In the Garden today
& Leading Lines
Day 9 – Warmth & the Quality of Light:
Playing with light & shadows today
and on days past
Bear with me. Someone has found solitude among these party animals. (scroll down)
In loving memory of my Aunti Vi, from whom I inherited a number of teddy bears and wonderful books I can’t bear to part with.
Learning the Rule of Thirds: https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/02/27/rule-of-thirds/
One way to reward oneself for incremental progress made toward goals is to carefully ration to yourself tiny treats that you love. My favorite treat:
Santa brings these mocha beans (coffee chocolates – no real coffee beans) to me each Christmas. I dole them out to myself one by one from December 25 to December 25, often as rewards to myself when I accomplish small steps toward big goals. They stay yummy all year and if any are left the following Christmas (and there usually are) I share with my Christmas guests to bring in the new year.
