A budding photographer's daily journey. Trying to find interesting subjects to test my skills in the art every day. Note that the pictures are full size and therefore will take a little while to load on slower connections if you click to "biggie" size them.

Day 35 – A Lonely Goat

Wandering around the local botanic gardens, this planter caught my eye.

  2. Yeah it is a skill I learned last year, trying to train my eye to look for things everywhere. It actually is not as cold as it normally is..really mild winter. It can get down to -20, -30 with windchill, but this year it has barely been below zero.

  3. Oh you So Cal softies 🙂

    I learned a bunch of stuff last year, have a bunch of videos and stuff if you are interested in the technical side, and also some great videos from really good photographers, including some hints and tips around perspective.

    One of the really good tricks I learned is focus on one subject from all angles and distances. Walk all around, get high, get low, zoom in, walk closer, walk further away, etc.

    It can lead to some interesting shots.
