Still not up to speed on shooting often enough, but did manage to get seven for this week. :) A couple of them are from my DailyShoot contributions as well.
This was one of the DailyShoot shots. It's my rarely played acoustic guitar that I got a long time ago... like pre-1982. I never did learn to play more than a few notes, unless you count "Michael Row Your Boat Ashore". :) Everyone once in a while I get in the mood to try and learn more, get it all tuned up and stick with it for a few weeks, then it ends up sitting in the corner of my den. For this shot, I sat it on my lap and placed the camera on the strings, looking down the neck. It looks like I strummed it for the shot, but I didn't.I shot this at work one lunch time, for the DailyShoot. It's a Hot Wheels dragster pen that my wife put in my Christmas stocking. It took me a dozen shots until I got one that looked pretty good.I had a difficult time finding something for this particular DailyShoot. Find two complementary objects. How hard could that be? I think this turned out pretty good. I thought about making it B&W, but decided to leave it as is in the end.I shot this on Saturday while I was snowing outside. Our bird feeder hangs just outside our window so our cat can enjoy watching them. The colour wasn't too great, since I had shot it through the window, so I decided to make it B&W. I guess I should refill it, eh? :)My favourite model, our cat Samantha. This is where she spends most of her time, either sleeping or watching out the window. If I move the automan anwhere else, she won't sleep in her bed on it. It must be in front of this window.I shot this one this evening, for today's DailyShoot assignment. It took me about half an hour to find something blue that I could make a decent shot out of. I spotted the bottle of Dawn dish liquid at the back of the sink. At first I thought I would try to shoot it as I poured it onto a plate. That didn't work out too well. I then made a bunch of bubbles in it and fired off a half dozen before switching to my 100mm lens for a couple like this one. You can see my reflection and other things in the kitchen. I had to make a few small adjustments to the RAW file, with the tone and saturation to bring out the blue a little better.
