So I've been doing a lot of sketching, and to balance it off today, I went and did about 2.5 hours of photography, and have a good solid 30 photos I plan on submitting, (at the most). I am very proud of the fact that I am a self-taught photographer, in the sense that I have learned tricks and techniques on my own and through experience. Today I really tried to focus (no pun intended... never mind, the pun is ALWAYS intended
), on my macro shootings, and how I could get the best result.
I have a CoolPix L820 and I really like it. It would be considered 1 step up from a basic point and shoot camera, but a step below your exchangeable lens camera. The macro mode on it is impressive, (according to me), and I was able to create a three-layer focus image on one picture, which is pretty cool. Like the image itself had it's main focus, a sub focus, and a blurry background.. like I said... pretty cool. I've also been messing around with some photo-manipulation, like hues, saturation, and cool filters.
It is so much fun for me to go out and do little spontaneous shoots while my dad disc golfs, it gives him and I good quality time, but simultaneously gives us alone time.
love always, livdrummer
