“Sun Catcher”

I was out in the yard taking macro photos on my Film camera for class – so I just grabbed my DSLR to quickly do my 365 for the day before I go rest and recover from this never ending COLD! AH!!! It was sunny out today so I am glad I made it outside for a little bit! This sun catcher is sitting on the fence so I caught it just in time before the sun fell behind the horizon.

“No bueno”

This took all of 15 seconds to take. I took 4 pictures (within 15 seconds) and this was the best. I did want to get creative with being sick in bed but I had zero energy, no voice, and loopy from nitequil. I wanted to honor my 365 project by still having a photo whether perfect health, sick, rain or shine… so here is my sickly attempt at saying no bueno. LOL

“Flying Free”

It’s been raining a lot lately, was supposed to snow actually today… but it was SO beautiful out – beautiful, clear, windy, and cold but most of all a gorgeous day in Marina del Rey. I miss it so much here, it’s been 10 years since I lived here on the yacht. I need to get back to sailing my #1 passion!

“The Rainy Clear Night”

I’m so tired. Ran outside real quick to get a picture of the street with rain coming down but the rain didn’t show up. But a car drove by… so I just snapped that. I know… not creative… but I’m sick in bed.

“A bed of sick”

Woke up not feeling well, had to get up at 5am to drive to Bellflower Court House, School, Massage, so naturally its a LAZY pic day, not feeling so hot so this is reflected in my low maintenance shot! Made my hair a little messier and warped my face a little to make it more sickly… LOL

“A Splash of H2O”

I wanted to try this for a while. I am limited on lighting so I did what I could… 2 tungsten lamps, Plexiglass, White Foam Board, and 1 Speedlite 580EX-II with CTO to correct for the tungsten lighting and used high speed sync. I poured a bottle of water into the wine glass.

“The Wizard”

This is a statue that has been in my parents house since I was a kid… its so strange… anyway because its a wizard and has stars I decided to cut out a star and create a star shaped hood for the lens to get the star bokeh in the background. I used my Speedlite 580EX-II offcamera to just barely light the statue to give it an eerie look.

“Turtle Butterfly Bokeh Lights”

Okay so this didn’t get where I wanted it to, due to space. I went as far back as I could with the 50mm 1.4 lens but the butterflies didn’t come out. I had to take 2 steps back and at that point the butterflies in the lights came out but it was hand held and no room for tripod… (need a bigger living room???)

So now I know I CAN do it, I will play around more with it tomorrow. I wanted to get a picture before 12am…. so this will have to do. 🙂

Below was the intended bokeh effect…
