Well, hello there. After spending the last two weeks at home, going back to work is going to be a real shock to the system… I decided to take a break from blogging over the last two weeks and just relax. Last year I started by posting photos I’d previously taken to help me get this blog up and running. After that I started following the Daily Shoots a bit, and tried to get 5 photos posted every week. This year I plan to post much less, probably around once a week. Instead I want to try and get better photos by spending time working on one idea and getting a better understanding of how to use photoshop and lightroom properly. Any tips for how I can improve my photos will, as always, be very welcome. Today was my first real day back with photography and, well, it wasn’t successful. I had an idea in my head that I wanted to work on, I spent around 3 hours at it, but, it just didn’t really come together So, after several shots which failed dismally, I was pleased to eventually get around 3 good shots later in the evening.
Here’s one that I like… it’s simple and the shot that you’ve seen done by everyone else already…. Tree light bokeh. I used my macro lens for this, purely because it allowed me to get more light in, than my other lenses, settings f2.8, ISO 100, 0.25 seconds.
All that’s left to say is… Happy New Year.
