365 Project - Day 99

Day 99



This is my last day in double digits. Moving forward, my aim to take my approach, capture, and final images up a notch as well. There will be a few theme weeks and other projects that I will incorporate into this one. Via Tasra365 [Check out her new site if you haven't already!!], I will participate in her 'Theme Thursday's' as well. Today's process was all about vantage points. There was another shot that I wanted but needed to a higher position to get the image the way I envisioned it. I will need to go back out and find a better position to shoot from in the coming days. After I looked at what was around me, since light was fading, I noticed the snow resting on top of some weeds to my front left. I moved to eye level, repositioned my tripod, and settled on a composition that worked. Then waited for about 10 minutes for a break in the wind to capture the above image. I opened the lens up to get a good blur, but not all the way open so subject would be completely sharp.

Enjoy.

Cannot wait to see what your images look like when you kick it up a notch. You already blow us away with what you capture!

I love how you put such thought and attention into each image. I can only imagine how that is shaping and informing your professional images as well.
