Another still life. Unfortunately more of a 'proof of concept' until more appropriately aged books appear in the mail and I acquire a better candle holder. The idea behind the composition was to following, with the elements of the photo, the pattern of the light, from the top left to the lower...
A short video in which they describe the process of setting up and taking a picture of a redwood tree.
I ran across this in the National Geographic box set bonus disc and found it online. Kinda makes me wonder if I've got the devotion to a single shot to 'make it' as a photographer :)
(Blame it on the nyquil)
I am the sick Photographer
I tried to take some pictures
With stuffy nose and ache
I tried it with the lens cap on
It's just a bit opaque?

My daughter is trying desperately to give up naps. Not so, today, when the cat curled up, out she went. Naturally, I grabbed the camera. I can't figure out whether there's just too much going on or if the tones are just too flat, but this one fell out of my 'ooh' file and into my 'keep for...
If I were smart, I'd have written down the name of this plant but I didn't and a I took a nap today so it's pretty much gone now. Anyway, I saw this in the flower shop and had to have it. It was just Positively Alien.
Inspired by bpetruzzo in his thread, http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/photography-beginners-forum-photo-gallery/161426-going-through-antiquing-phase.html, I took a crack at processing an image very similarly. I would be a fool to think I came anywhere close to his, but I'm pleased enough with...
