Wow what a day!!
Well what can I say, long, VERY interesting, thought provoking, warm rooms, dead battery, missing SD card, brain on overload, new Flicker account, thoughts’ flying, coveting cameras, looking through different eyes and lots more.
Here is a copy of what I done in the lab. Credit for the photo goes to Siobhan I guess, I just did some of the editing work on it. Photoshop can do soooo much.
I really enjoyed getting outside and having a look around to find the elusive letters. I have put some of the photos up on my new Flicker account where my username is DebraDonovan. I found that I was getting sucked in closer and closer to items to try and find some of those elusive letters. I caught myself and had to pretty much tell myself to stand back and look all around. The shapes, textures and light I wanted could be found everywhere not just by looking closer and closer at the things around me. I have to remember to look at the big picture also, not to get absorbed with the closer and closer approach.
It almost felt like reading a good book. The more involved I get with a book the closer I bring it to my face, the more hunched my back gets, the smaller my body gets. Imagine curling up on the couch with that book (really curled up). I had somewhat of the same sensation when I was out getting those photographs yesterday. The more I was getting into it the more I was kneeling, bending, arching and moving in order to get that shot. I think I got a few that might be worthy of the final pick. I will have to wait and see.
Even though I did not pick up a camera today I still found myself looking out for interesting angles, shapes and stuff in general that could make that shot happen. I was so wiped after yesterday I thought I needed a day to refresh but it has crept up on me. I am looking at everything now.
Note to self: Bring camera everywhere!! 🙂
