The assignment this weekend was “holiday” theme. It’s not going to be graded but I still wanted to post some of my pictures.
I started with these seashell lights that we have hanging up. The shutter speed was at 1.6 of a second, and then I moved my camera around a bit to make the lights look like this. It’s not anything special but it was fun to experiment with. Next, I put a couple of ornaments up and tried to take pictures of them. Personally, I think this one is a little on the dark side and I probably could have lightened it up more. Here it is from another angle.Then, I went to the other side of the ball and took a picture. I realized that the lights were in the background, and I liked that. So I went ahead and messed around with that some more…
…also switching colors at one point. Now, I realize that all of these are a little on the dark side. But when I turned on my flash on, I didn’t like the effect (picture under this will show you).
So I just stuck with the lamp I had that was facing up towards the tree. I just didn’t like the harshness of the flash on these ornaments.
This is probably the worst example of bokeh. but I thought I’d give it a try. This is the only one I took, but I thought that I could still throw it in here.
I would have been more excited about this assignment, if we had more decorations up and maybe there was more snow outside already.
