    I will always love images with a shallow depth of field and creamy background, so I was really happy with how this one turned out. http://www.flickr.com/photos/92660812@N03/8709596666/in/photostream

    And then I took a picture of my sister in the early evening (I dislike how her face isn’t perfectly in focus, but I guess that just means I need to work on that.) http://www.flickr.com/photos/92660812@N03/8709124204/in/photostream

    And the night before I experimented with light painting! http://www.flickr.com/photos/92660812@N03/8705729153/in/photostream

    Sometimes I have good photography days, others not so much… I think I’ve been doing pretty well the last couple of days (but of course, that’s just me comparing me to myself!). ๐Ÿ™‚

    Worst Case Scenario

    Good use of DoF in the first pic but it could use something a little more interesting as the centre on attention. The pic of your sister is great! I didn’t zoom in so the focus looked fine to me. The light painting looks cool but without being able to see the face it suffers from the same problem as the first pic.

    Good technique in all the shots.


    Actually you just gave me a great idea for the light painting picture, so thank you (well, it could turn out horribly haha)! I think I’ll definitely use a light against my face for a moment during the exposure, it should look creepy/cool. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that before!


    I really like the shot of your sister. I would definitely recommend using a reflector or something to try and brighter her up a smidge or put some light in her eyes just to add some extra depth. ๐Ÿ™‚ They’ve all come out pretty well though!


    “I think Iโ€™ve been doing pretty well the last couple of days (but of course, thatโ€™s just me comparing me to myself!)”

    TBH, I am the only person I ever compare myself to as the only thing that matters is I do a little better today than I did yesterday.

    I liked all three.


    I loved the photo of your sis, and the light painting was cool. I have played around with light painting, but it never came out as interesting as yours.



    Thanks Katie! ๐Ÿ™‚ I think my light painting came out so well because I realized that I have a round light with about 24 LEDs in it… So I had fun with that haha
