Turn off auto

I had a lot of fun doing this week’s SPF assignment from Kristine, because I got to try out some cool new stuff with my camera. Goodie gumdrops!

  1. Macro: take a picture of something ‘close up’. Don’t use your zoom, make sure you have good lighting and make sure you’re steady. If you have to, set your camera down on something and then take the picture.
  2. NO FLASH: try swiching the flash off and taking pictures of your stuff without it. It may take a lot of pictures to get the right shot, but open the windows and find artifical light to get it to work.
  3. Perspective: get up high or down low…either way, change the perspective of your picture..tilt the camera sideways. Change the layout of the picture. Instead of having the subject framed perfectly in the middle of the picture…move it to the left or the right.


Yeesh, look how dirty my car is. Blame it on the rain. Hey, that’s the name of a Milli Vanilli song. (Random useless information tidbit.)

No flash:
no flash

That is a twin-lens reflex camera. It’s not mine–as if I’d know how to use that thing. Gah! Oh, but I do know that not using a flash means you need to set the camera down on something. So I propped it up on a Queer Eye for the Straight Guy book. It’s how all the professionals do it.


That tiny white speck under the park sign? It’s the moon y’all. How cool is that? Cooler still is that today I could go outside and take pictures because the rain finally stopped. For a day.

Didja play?
