366 Project

What is your personal photographic journey? In a photographic sense, how did you start, and with what equipment? How have you progressed, and where are you, and your photographic skillset, placed today?

This is a place where members may share their personal photographic journey. Some of our normal posting rules are suspended within this section. To illustrate you story, for instance, you may post more than the normal 4 or so images. In fact, we actively encourage you to share with us images that illustrate how your photography has changed since you started. So readers with slower connections please be warned that postings made within this section may be - will be - larger than the norm.

Nah. That was the night before. The lens had a sheet of ice over it then. But it was too B. cold to photograph it (My hands were too numb)

But but but. The guy who sold it to me said it was special focus correcting paint. Now where did I put that receipt?

I finally got outside with my new toy last night and promptly discovered I have quite a learning curve in front of me. So nothing to share yet.
So back to plan B for POTD:
Pam was given some of her favourite Jelly Babies yesterday & I had thoughts of setting them up for a tumble. When I noticed the marble on the side board my ideas coalesced.
The original idea was for a group of 10 in pyramid formation with the ball bearing down on them, but the babies refused to stand in a group, so I switched to mid strike with the few cooperative ones awaiting their fate.

It works surprisingly well. Perhaps an extra exposure or two for focus bracketing to get the front ones in focus.

My daughter wanted some photos taken of her rooms, but didn't give me advance notice, so while I had my camera with me, I had no tripod or flash. Then I remembered Murray's technique for HDRs
I leaned against a door post for stability, set the camera to -3EV and 9/1.0EV brackets ( that gave me 7 under one, 1 over and 1 nailed according to the exposure meter) and blazed away. I have to say the results exceeded my expectations. I should perhaps have used the other doorpost to remove the edge of the wardrobe, but apart from that...

Probably a few more than that Greg. You need to add some extra days for leap years!

He is looking very good for his years. I work in aged care and I know of some people that look older but are much, much younger. What is his secret to longevity?

A great picture and memory. I guess you would have a B&W conversion too.

I think you may find that Greg's mathematics is correct. The 25 days above 36,500 account for the leap years (assuming the photo was taken on his birthday).

I delegated that to my daughter, but she piked & made snowballs instead. I wasn't game to take my camera out to record them

Not this snow. Too wet.
