I have not been doing much photography lately and the thing is, it is such a great stress reliever. My sis, bro and I all started a new project. We joined a flickr group which we have to take a photo every week this year. We can choose to also do the theme for each week, which I like because that helps get ideas but can also be a challenge. I joined Thursday but then had a crazy couple of days and still hadn’t gotten to take my shot which had to be done by midnight Sunday. The theme for this week was “Start.” I was really glad that it had started snowing when I got off work. So after running over some laurel bushes trying to get up our driveway, I went out and tried some snow-in-the-dark shots. Not great but I definitely felt better afterwards.
I have done very little black and white. I just might make that my theme for this project. My shots without the flash were not doing so well. So I tried a flash finally and I liked the way it turned out in black and white. Focus was not perfect, I was cold and probably starting to shiver.
