Far enough to wish.
Close enough to sparkle.
I did a photo shoot on red pepper the other day. Brilliant individual that I am, I managed to get some into my eyes.
But I think it was worth it to get these shots.
[All photos SOOC]
My photography teacher is a creative genius. She came up with this great idea to create a box of 10′ x 10′. And I had to stand within this box, not move outside of it, and take pictures.
It was fun. And I think I got some great results. : )
Yes. I haven’t posted in a while.
Yes. I have an excuse.
Yes. I’ve been über darn busy.
And yes. I still have pictures to show for the time I’ve been gone. ; )
These photos are all from the time I spent a few weeks ago in Georgia for a national open debate tournament. It was absolutely fabulous, and I wish I could go through it all over again. : ))
I got to meet so many new people and strengthen old friendships. It was pretty much an amazing experience. Jussayin’.
To all of those that made it epic: thank you. You have no idea how awesome I think you are. : D
And without further ado, here’s a mini swarm of pictures from down South. Not all are perfect, since I had to work with little light at some points. But I like them overall. : )
[Oh, and for some reason, all the pictures are showing up in backwards order. I’m not sure why, but whatever. : P ]
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, 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.
Yes, creepalicious happens to one of my favorite non-existent words. Don’t ask me why.
I think it adequately describes this picture.
Anyway, it snowed, and I tried a ghosting effect. It worked okay. I have a hard time getting it to focus on me, and not the background. But I still like how this looks. A little spooky, hm?
