3/365


Well, the challenges of this project are becoming very apparent to me! I typically enjoy taking photos of people almost exclusively. People in close proximity, mind you, and mainly children (family members mostly.) So this project is really taking me out of my comfort zone, and I think I'm going to learn a lot. For lack of a better photo to post, here is a shot of the electronic holiday skaters that have been pulled from our basement for the last ten years (at least) at Christmas time. I'm having trouble putting them away (as always, we have trouble letting go of Christmas around here), so I thought I'd play around with angles and settings. I never did get a shot that I was thrilled with, but since I have to post SOMETHING, here it is!

I really like it Pam.It is a beautiful display and a lovely photo. I like that light I see in the backround too. I don't know what aperture you used but maybe a smaller aperture would have yielded a greater DOF and the skaters would have been more in focus but I love the photo.

I like it Pam. I have a Christmas Village that I just started this year. The tree and other items are gone, but I haven't put the village away yet. I think you're doing great with your photos!

Love that story. I'm being pulled from my comfort zone too, so I know how you feel. I'm glad to see your post!

I like what Jane said about the skaters being in focus more. It would have added a little something to the photo. I love to look at the detail in Christmas villages.

Camera Info

Most of these have been shot with a Nikon D200. I have two lenses--the 18-135mm kit lens and a 50mm 1.8. I also occasionally use a Canon Powershot A540 point and shoot. (And a few of them are camera phone pictures!)
