30 Day Photo Challenge #2

Today’s challenge was to help with photo composition by using the rule of thirds. In my example. I decided to take a picture of my iPhone and have the Apple logo in the top left intersect point, which also happened to also include the word iPhone in the lower left intersect point. By putting your subject into any of the intersect points, it generally makes a more pleasing image.


30 Day Photo Challenge #1

One of the photography sites I visit, is doing a 30 Day Photo Challenge. I thought it would be fun to participate and it would give me something new to post on here since I haven’t been doing too much lately. Basically, each day a new assignment comes up and I’ll post the photo I did for that assignment. I’ll probably skip the weekends unless time permits, but I thought this would be a great way to get some practice in.

The first assignment of the day was to do a self portrait of yourself. I opted to do one of myself with my Star Wars collection, since that is one of my favorite hobbies. I used the lighting from my cases and my wireless flash located to my upper right in the photo. To help make the flash match the bookcase lighting I put an orange gel in front of it to give it a warmer feel. I also opened up my aperture to blur the background a bit.
