There is such a vast difference between a picture you make and a picture you take. Not saying one is better than the other. They are just vastly different.
Today I was “making” a picture, coming up with an idea for today’s shot when a picture found me. I love those moments. Serendipity steps in and takes a hand.
Sitting on the ground in the living room with my camera shooting into the big bay window, my son came up with my husband’s classic Canon 814 Super 8mm film camera. He saw me shooting and decided he would join me. It didn’t take long for me to figure out that the best shot was sitting right beside me. I turned opposite my son and had him pretend to film me taking pictures. Obviously with the intent to capture him pretending to be a filmmaker.
I’m happy with how the images turned out. Played around with black and white, sepia, and color to see the difference color makes on an image. No other post-processing was done. Which is your favorite?
Manual: Read page 90—Monitor, Meter, Self-Timer, Remote. I keep all of these on the default setting. What about you?
Images: Browsed through images on Photofocus Flickr group again. Such a wide variety of styles and genres.
