March Round-up

March 2010

March 2010 3/12 3 Months completed! Well, more improvement I think… Helped by the fact that I got a tripod for my Birthday.  I am looking into getting some filters and external flashes, any recommendations would be more than welcome. March was a good month, aside from celebrating another full year on the planet I got to […]

Day Ninety!

SAMSUNG ST500 1/3s Focal Length: 4.9mm f/3.5 ISO: 400 90/365. Still not feeling well but happy that it was the last day of target at work.  I hit it! This is my office stapler,  I thought it was a cool picture so decided to use it.  I applied the creative “antique grayscale” preset to it […]

SAMSUNG ST500 1/15s Focal Length: 4.9mm f/3.5 ISO: 200 89/365. Ick, thats how I feel today.  Like my wonderful co-worker pointed out, I sound like a munchkin off of The Wizard of Oz.  There was this headline in today’s newspaper and although it is not the sickness I have (thats a good thing) it sums up my day […]

Day Eighty Six

NIKON D3000 1/60s Focal Length:38.0mm f/5.0 ISO: 400 86/365. I LOVE HOW THIS TURNED OUT! I had the idea for this shot yesterday and spent the morning trying to work out the best spot in my house to take good pictures.  It turns out that Stewart’s bench press is good for more things than one! […]

NIKON D3000 10.0s Focal Length: 18.0mm f/13.0 ISO: 400 85/365. Yay! Friday!!  Now I only have one more Friday at work!

Tips for “newbie” photographers like me!

Ok, so if you have been following my blog or even just browsed through it today you can probably notice fairly quickly that I am “newbie” photographer.  I got my first DSLR camera (a Nikon D3000) as a gift from my partner on Christmas and I started my Project 365 1 week later.  Prior to […]

I had a laser eye surgery consultation and they are unable to offer the procedure to me as my prescription is too unstable. It has changed from -8.50 to -9.75 in 6 months.  My eyes are healthy […]

NIKON D3000 1/3s Focal Length: 38.0mm f/8.0 ISO: 400 83/365. Not much to report today, a little work, a little reading and a little web browsing. I took this photo myself with my tripod.  I used manual focus and manual settings then added a aged photo filter with Lightroom.  I have not actually started this […]
