Portrait, landscape and working the curve
127:365 My Christmas lights funkadellic style
128:365 I spend 5 nights a week with him so he really ought to be here.
129:365 At the downtown tree lighting ceremony
130:365 The Saint John String Quartet with special guest percussionists
132:365 My friend Stephen let me use his basement studio again. It was fun, but I still have so much to learn and I'm not sure I know how to learn anything when I am in the company of an over-tired 5-yr-old.
This shot isn't my picture of the day but I did experiment with it in the freeware program, GIMP. Stephen encouraged me to "manipulate the curve" on the studio shots so that the black of my daughter's dress would pop out a bit from the background. I tried it here and may experiment a bit more when I can find a bit more time.
133:365 Landscape: it's definitely changing in all the wrong ways.
I did make the rounds over the last week but I noticed that some of you haven't updated your shots in a while. Are you still with me? My guess is that you're still shooting daily but have gotten bogged down in the editing and uploading. If so, wipe your slate and start anew tomorrow.
Well, the holidays are bearing down so let's try a seasonal prompt: carol. Make it fun, make it pun. Enjoy.
