Depth of field

Depth of field

Not sure which one I like better. I like the light in the first one, but I like the space better in the second one. hmmmm

I think both of these can fit into a few different catagories, but I think this one is...
Perception, and patterns. I like the way the light bulb is the focal point, and then you have the glass around it with patterns on it, and then the patterns in the base of the fan, and the patterns in the blade of the fan. I wish the lighting was a little more even in the picture, but that was because the other two lights on the fan were on and this one wasn't. I actually like this pictures composition though.

This one I think fits in the Texture, and Lines catagory. Interesting the things you can take a picture of, and how they can draw your eyes into it. My front door is a peice of junk in reality, but this picture shows a different quality about it I think. Its fun practicing, and seeing what I can find.

I used the manual aperture macro setting on my camera to get these pics. I zoomed in on the fan, and just did a normal range on the door. I didn't change the coloring or anything else in the pictures which is something I usually edit in picasa 3. Its fun to take a picture and not have to do anything to it! The one thing I did do in editing is I cut a little bit off the top of the picture of the fan to make it more even with the bottom. I also used a fine shutter speed setting. I don't know how much of a difference it made, except for capturing a little more detail I think.

I was looking for some info on composition, and found a site that mentions 10 elements.
Depth of field

I am going to give myself an assignment/challange to take a picture using these elements. I will post what I come up with. Feel free to give input!

Another one I did for the weekly challange. I wish I centered the picture a little bit more. I put the frame around it in Photo Impressions 4, and edited the rest in Picasa 3.

Christmas night. I didn't even know it was snowing in our backyard until I took the shot with a flash. Interesting. : )

Here are some new pictures applying the things I learned last time.

Lesson learned by hands on

I learned a few good lessons with this one.
It was just an experiment, so don't judge to harshly. lol
#1 make sure your subject is the way you want it! hehe I could have taken a few moments and a baby wipe or two to the top of it, to rid it of the dust.
#2 Pay attention to detail!! (Uncle Jay, I know you told me that already, but I tend to be a hands on learner, and now I see why you find it so important. lol I knew it was important, just didn't fully understand it.) : }
My subject could have looked a lot better if it had some room on top, and I had to straighten the image in Picasa.

#3 Pay attention to shadows better. I don't think they look to bad on here, but I probably could have made them less noticeable at a different angle. I am going to try this image again. Let me know what you think!!

P.S. I totally love my new camera! I spent most of this morning learning from the manual. This camera has a ton of options! Yay!!

Background could be better, but I just love how this shows off her bubbiliness.

k-she is just a pretty funny little girl. She keeps me going during the day.

Her and I played dress up with make-up, glitter, and fingernail polish. She is a fun girl to hang out with. : )

Just kidding, I drew this one. lol
Had to throw this one in there, my nativity scene at home.
She poses for me on her own terms, but it turns out cute!

Love this one!

I just want to squish her!!

She wore this dress on her blessing day. This picture is actually tweaked with to a degree in my photo impressions program. I colored the background, and added some contrast with the shadows.

A bit blurry, but I just love her face, and couldn't resist the black and white look!

Her and her cousin, hanging out on the couch.
