As the world knows, we’re on lock down. So I’ve been slightly bored, and sick, I have bronchitis. But, I was feeling creative the other day. Out came the camera!
Firstly, meet Domino – he’s one of our new kittens (his brother, Nimbus comes around later) – He decided to photobomb me. I have been watching a lot of Peter Peter Mckinnon on youtube, He’s a vid blogger from O Canada and his style of photography is wicked cool. I can’t afford his presets – but I have watched most of his videos so I’ve been recreating some. He has some great early vids about texture, and etc. Very much worth a watch!
I spent a year and a quarter of my PTA career in Stonington, ME. One of the things I loved to do, was find places to photography the sunset, or even the middle of the day. Inevitably, you find sea glass. I’d always go home with a pocket full, and then come home to Northern Maine, and put them in jars. My sister in law was kind enough to give me a few new ones so I spent a some time dividing them into smaller, color coded jars. When the sun hit, it really picks up the colors. I used a basket for some textured background. And my keys made an appearance, of course.
As you can see, Domino came back for a 2nd guest appearance. I took out my lens extenders, that changes the focal point and allows you to take pictures closer in macro.
Say hello to Nimbus – he is more of a poser and decided that my photo table was now “his” and I decided to do some snaps of the lil guy.
After Nimbus took his leave, I played some more with a few objects – and then in post, several different *looks*. I’m going to try and do at least one day of photos a week during this lock down time, gotta do something, right?
