We’re going over PhotoJ in class. It’s so much harder then I thought it’d be, but it’s pretty fun as well. I decided to make my brother practicing his guitar the subject.
I think I like the results, though I did cringe when I had to massively bump up the ISO. : /
Yes, I have emerged from the grave.
Actually, I haven’t quite revived yet. In between a speech and debate tournament [in which my partner and I placed 4th!], college applications, and schoolwork, my free-time this week was more scarce than snow on the equator.
In other words, dear readers, I have failed to keep up my challenge.
I hoped it wouldn’t happen. Unfortunately, I was wrong.
This does NOT mean that I haven’t taken quite a few pictures over the past week. In fact, I have quite a few. So I’ll dump them on you now. : )
I’ll keep on posting here frequently, but I doubt I’ll be able to continue the blog as an official 365 photoblog. Or I could possibly strive to restart in February. Hm, maybe I’ll do just that…
I tried another Christmas lights photo. && I like this one even more. : )
The absolutely fabulous Caroline (and her photos will leave you stunned, no joke)
I had fun with long exposure on our road. : ))
…and I like this too.
Panning. At about midnight. Because my creativity was drained.
So, I haven’t posted yesterday’s picture yet. And I probably won’t have time to post today’s. In other words, this is just a short post to tell you that it’ll probably take a while to get the next few pictures up.
[So sorry to disappoint you. ; P ]
Hopefully all will be up by Sunday. : )
So, yes, this is late. But I legitimately took these photos on the correct date. I just didn’t upload them on time. In other words, this still counts. ; )
ALSO, _some_ people seem to think :coughmom&auntcough: that the last photos look like organs or something… Well, I apologize if they looked like that to you as well, but they are most definitely mints. : P
Alright, photos. I took these at night [no duh], and boosted up the aperture so I’d get rays of light off of the Christmas lights. Shutter speed was 30 seconds.
Totally forgot until later in the day, but I got my photos taken. I’ve been wanting to draw something, but for some reason, I haven’t been really inspired to draw anything lately. It’s rather frustrating, really.
Anywho, photos of the day. I panned mints. And I like the color red. : )
So, the sun was going down and I realized I hadn’t done anything artistic today. So I cleaned a mirror, dragged my younger brother outside [who happens to be taller than me now…how’d that happen, again?], and took a few shots. The pictures kind of serve a double-purpose because my photography teacher is requiring portrait shots this week. Except for the fact they all turned out a little bit dark because there was next to no available light, I liked how they turned out. [All photos are SOOC]
And now I have to submit one of them for photography class. Any preferences?
I love how you wouldn’t be able to tell ^that is a self-portrait unless I told you. Like I just did. : P
Well, 2o11 has finally arrived. It feels a bit surreal, but it’s here. Wow.
2o1o was an odd year. It was the year of my first debate tournament in which I managed to get hooked into forensics and let it obsess my brain. I developed new friendships and strengthened old ones. I traveled to new places.
Yeah, this year was just something my already writing-inadequate brain can’t adequately describe on paper.
There are some things which I regret about the past year. But I would never give it up for anything.
To all who helped bring color and laughter to this year, I thank you.
Thank you for sticking by me and encouraging me, even when I truly didn’t deserve it.
And NOW that I’ve finished with my cheesy little spiel, here are the first photos from my 365 challenge. : )
My brother got these funny straw glasses things for Christmas. So of course I had to drag him outside for some pictures.
Have a wonderful New Year, everyone. ❤
