That is going to take some getting use to. Not that long ago 2015 was a far off date in si fi flicks. Now its marking the start of my new year behind my lens.
I am inspired by light this Jan 1st.
I decided to drag out some of my quilt fabric and use as a backdrop, and what the heck, I even pulled out some black!
I went for gold tones and things that projected
that warm feel of the sun and garden flowers. Now that I have discovered that fabric is not for quilting, I might have to buy some more with a different minds eye!
This leaf image is Red Bud dried and its hanging from a clamp over my table with fabric way in the background. Used Aperture Priority and got in close with my mighty macro lens.
This blue flower is fake! Yikes, I had to resort to what was at hand. All my flowers are fake.
This is also how far I shot this from the background for the leaf photo. With the large aperture priority, my subject as far from background as I could get in my small area and shooting close as I could get I managed to create some feel of outside.
When I processed my images in LR and PS Elements I added some tweeks to those images but the real work was trying to create light. One thing you can't see is the pole light I have. Its just plain ole lightbulbs and the pole light has 3 lights I can point in different directions, honestly I think I paid $12 for it at Walmart.
Now that I have documented something exciting for the first day of the year its time to hop on over to Flicker and post my work. Happy shooting and Happy New Year.
