Here are my latest photos from the 30 Day Photography Challenge! I skipped the “long exposure” day for now because I keep slacking on setting up my tripod, but I pinky swear I won’t forget about it! Anyway, here are days 17 through 24.
Technology (Day 17): Here’s a glimpse of what our office/critter room looks like when the lights are out. I spend a lot of time editing photos in Lightroom with the lights out during the day and by the time Pete gets home from work, I realize I’ve been sitting in the dark for several hours. Whoops. I’m 27 and I still haven’t gotten used to daylight saving time ending. We have double monitors since Pete can work a lot faster with web developing and it helps me multitask (*cough* watch tv on the other monitor) while editing photos.
Your shoes (Day 18): I apologize for the blurry photo, but I tend to take these photos at the end of the day when there is little to no light in our living room. Here’s a view of my shoes, with Betty and Charsi in the background…this is typically what they are doing (watching me attentively) while I work on my laptop.
Something orange (Day 19): Thanks to my parents, our sunroom is decked out with light-up pumpkins and the goodies we bought from Linvilla Orchards. We still have to carve our pumpkins this week…I think I might carve Han Solo to give Pete a pumpkingasm.
Bokeh (Day 20): Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur in out-of-focus areas of an image. I took this photo in our sunroom with the crazy witch my parents gave us as a decoration. The lit pumpkins in the background are the “bokeh,” or blurred orange and yellow circular shapes.
Faceless self-portrait (Day 21): Whenever I go anywhere, the dogs follow me. For my faceless self-portrait I wanted to show a typical view when I look in the mirror. Betty White flops on the bed and falls asleep and Charsi stares at me until I pet her. In this photo I’m wearing the JCrew sweater Pete bought me over the weekend…cuddly sweaters and generous ginger boyfriends are the best.
Hands (Day 22): Checking my Twitter feed while multitasking (usually while cooking or in bed). Note to self: take off chipped nail polish. And yes, that is a blurry Betty White staring at me in the background like a stalker dog.
Sunflare (Day 23): There was plenty of sunflare at this engagement shoot, since the sun was pretty much directly above our heads. I really love the rainbow effects that happen when you have sunflare, but cloudy days tend to be my favorite for shooting since shadows can be pretty harsh in this lighting.
Animal (Day 24): I had the pleasure of petsitting this pooch for a little while this past week. She is super cute and didn’t stop smiling. Betty White definitely could have learned a thing or two from her since Betty is always grimacing in photos.
