To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 237 - Relearning the Alphabet: The Letter "O"

"O" as in the drop of body lotion

Ok, that's a little far-fetched, but I had no plans of doing the shot of the day, or catching up. I'm suddenly exhausted and I just can't seem to be able to remain in a vertical position.  However, after chatting with a friend on the phone and admitting to him that I hadn't even worked on my photos from the trip, I kinda felt guilty and just got up and got at it.  I had no clue what I was going to shoot when I started playing with the bottle of body lotion.  Et voilĂ !  The shot just popped into my head.

I know it isn't top quality (even by my standards, which aren't that high to begin with), and then, it was handheld at 1/4s at ISO 1600, f/2.8.  And of course I had to fire the flash to freeze the camera shake.  The blurriness is part handholding and part high ISO.

I know, I know - I'm being lazy, but that's how I truly feel at this moment.
