Oh boy, as I said to Troy, "day 2 was not as much fun as day 1!" hehehehe
Let's just say I learned very quickly that I have no skills when it comes to techniques and photography....Bokeh, what the heck is Bokeh???? Well, I discovered today; it is not my friend.
We were given an inspiration photo and directions...that I followed to the best of my amateur ability, and, well, you'll see the results.
|So, this is the inspiration pic from The 365 Project. Pretty right?|
|And here is my failed attempt number 1!|
|Seeing the circles of Bokeh, but is this what it's supposed to look like? Doesn't seem quite right.|
|hmm, over exposed!!!!!|
|Troy, get in front of the tree and let me see if I can get you in focus, and keep the bokeh in the background.... FAIL!!!!|
|Getting closer...but this was, like, shot 105!|
|What is the purpose of this again?|
|Still wondering if I can get something in focus in front of the tree....|
|more bokeh! It looks like the inspiration pic right?|
|TaDa!!!! (is that how you spell it?) Well, this looks neat!|
|Not super in focus, but working on it.|
Well, my final thoughts of the day's shoot, hmm....I'm no good with technique! I have a lot of work to do and I'm going to keep chugging along.
My next challenge for myself...............sun flare!!!
Hopefully we'll have some sun tomorrow and I can get out of school at a decent hour.
