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 357 - Dull, Dreary, Damp!!

That's what the weather has been like here.  I was supposed to present some tips and tricks on how to do flower photography to my photo club at work.  I had a ton of ideas, but not enough time to make the sample images I would have liked.  It was a last minute decision to do the presentation, because after looking at the forecast, it didn't seem like we would be able to go outdoors to shoot.

I needed a few images to demonstrate what effect the choice of aperture has on DoF and went out after work to do that.  The sky was dark grey, light was failing, and I didn't have the opportunity to venture far.  Therefore, the plans went down the drain as I saw that the light was way below par.  But I took a few shots for myself anyway - needed the shot of the day, after all!
