For Day 2, we had to spell out something that said "Christmas" to us. Nothing makes me feel as Christmassy as "It's a Wonderful Life" with the fabulous James Stewart, so I chose to write out Zuzu's Petals .... using Prima petals! The idea was good, but in practice ....... well, I just HATE this shot.
Day 3 was all about attempting to take a photo of lights in twilight or similar. As an added bounus, CJ told us how to achieve a starburst effect without a special filter. All you need to do is take your shot while putting your lens in a sieve or a tea strainer! This was me using a tea strainer and some blue LED lights! I am definitely going to be trying to use this technique when the Christmas tree goes up!
Today, we had to take an outdoor shot. I actually took this yesterday and am very pleased with it!
I am really enjoying this course and hopefully will learn even more over the next 8 days!
I'm a young-at-heart 56 year old Scottish lass! I have two daughters, one son-in-law and four grandchildren.
I'm currently unemployed due to office closure.
I love all kinds of altered art and also love crochet, sewing and knitting.
I adore photography and am slowly learning how to use my brand new Canon EOS 7D - and Photoshop!
I also use my iPhone for photography, mostly using Instagram to edit and upload pics! What did I ever do before I had one! :-)
