Day 17 - 01/26/11

The temperatures were nice today, meltly, sloppy, wet, and the sun was shining, gotta love it. I caught the sunset on my way home. I didn't have my Pentax with me today so I had my point and shoot Kodak.

Day 16 - 01/25/11

Really had no energy to shoot or be overly creative, so I poured a glass of wine and relaxed.

Enjoy both my written work and my photo work.

Day 14 - 01/23/11

I went for a drive this morning after leaving a friends I drove for 2 hours on the country roads looking for nothing in particular just wanting to clear my heads from the thoughts and feeling I had that were troubling me regarding the night before, anyways my adventure took me various roads. A goregous day for outdoor shooting right.

Day 13 - 01/22/10

I wanted to do something different tonight, so I shot myself, and then gave the shot and overexposed old photo look. I hope it worked.

Day 12 - 01/21/10

Visiting a friend, I was checking out some of his stuff, and saw that he had and old camera, a Kodak 120. A very neat little thing. So here are the shots of this old camera, which makes me want go and get one for myself.

Day 10 - 01/19/11

Took a walk around our snow drifted and plowed infested parking lot, and actually found an undisturbed little corner, and with the shadow coming off the plowed drifted snow, there was interesting shaped shadows coming off the piles. This is one of them.

Day 9 - 01/18/11

Went checked out the 'Ice on Whyte' Festival tonight. I thought Ice, Art, Light and a warm night, let's go! Here is a small selection of what I shot.

Ice Slide for the kids.
Man Slaying Dragon

Pork Budda I guess.
The rest I will be posting on FB, and will add the link once I am finished going through them.

Day 8 - 01/17/11

So time get my butt off the couch and get fit! I'm going to start with the Wii and hopefully move back to the
 Tri-Leisure Center, once I decide if I can afford the monthly rate. I want to focus on swimming to get my arm built back up for ball, which starts in April.

I like the lighting I got here! Thank you table night light!

Day 7 - 01/16/11

I had trouble on shooting yesterday, no creativity, I hope these work. They are best if what I shot.

Day 6 - 01/15/11

My afternoon drive did not go the way I wanted, first found a great spot was all set to take the shot, I took the shot and no memory card. So back to town I went, headed back out again, couldn't find my spot. I went with to find another, and even with a nice spot, used my flash and everything, I still managed to ruin the shot.
I didn't clean my lenses or camera so had stuff on the picture I had trouble editing. So the picture above this the only one I really like because of the snow falling, caught the flakes with my flash.

Day 5 - 01/14/11

So I asked for it, I asked for an assignment and I got one. I asked Dave for an assignment and he said shadows. I asked him what he meant and he said to use my flash to create interesting shadows. So here are my pics, of shadow shots. How did I do Dave?

Day 3 - 01/12/11

I didn't have much creativity today, having recent scanner issues took my energy. Must do better! Important thing is I did use my flash! I hit buttons, and switches to get different results. I kept my ISO low on the camera. Really haven't noticed any difference between using it and not, but maybe that is part of learning soon I shall, I hope.

I have my photog friends giving advice on what to do and I even asked for assignments, should be fun to learn. I also have websites and forms to read, as long as they catch my eye and don't sound monotoned I might actually pay attention, maybe I'll turn my blackberry into an e-reader and read some stuff too. I'm really antsy for Spring to be here so I can be outside more, we are in a cold snap now, and I have no desire to shoot when its like this, my only thing is with the cold comes the heavy frost and I love that on the trees, against a blue sky, it just pops. I'm rambling so here are the pics from tonight.

Day 2 - 01/11/11

Yesterday I spent a little time with my flash and some lights as I was assisting Dave with a video project he was working on, I have 2 pics using my Flash and his lights, so I took a picture of his lights with my Flash, doesn't make sense, but yesterday it did.

You can so tell I have the flash on, well that is what this 365 is all about, Flashy Lights!
And shooting to get better.

Day 1 - 01/11/10

Okay, here is Day 1, since I'm fiddling with with my flash still and getting white...must play more when internet not driving me nuts. So my first shot is done without a flash, as I left work. Once I have an actual image that isn't white I will post.

I'm lucky I caught this on my way out the door, it was a nice end to a hectic day.
I hope my internet is working better tomorrow.
