Vintage Amber Glass with Pinecone

#dogwood52 #week3 - Technical; Full Manual; f2.5; shutter 1/100

f2.5, shutter 1/100

I was not sure which version I preferred until I got them both on the page. I think my submission for the week will be the portrait layout with more focus on the bottles.

dogwood52 Week 2 - Composition; Color Harmony

I drove past this painted wall on my way home from work one afternoon. I liked the bold colors. 

I shot from several different angles and decided that I liked the 'sheen' from the sun on the bricks and the shadow on the left of the frame. 

This also meets my personal goal of creating more abstract art.

Dogwood52 Photo Challenge-Week 1-Vision

For these weekly challenges I plan to use a 50mm 1.8 (nifty fifty) prime lens on full manual mode. I hope to get more comfortable with street photography or more abstract work. I typically shoot landscapes and macro images. And I use my phone a lot so I imagine that some of the challenges will be completed with my phone. 

I am not overly introspective when it comes to my art, it just is. However, I was able to make it to the path of totality for the Great American Eclipse on 21 August 2017 and that seems to have sparked a turning point in my creativity that I hope to carry forward into 2018.

I guess spending 12 hours in a car for 2.5 minutes (approximately) of eclipse will do that to you.

Camera Shy Self Portrait - Theme Day

So this is my camera shy, self portrait. Two of my favorite foods are burgers and pizza. They didn't have pizza at work today, so I settled for the burger. On whole wheat, with ketchup, onions, tomatoes, and lettuce. Nothing beats a good burger. Except maybe a good burger and a beer.
