We made it this far! Unbelievable.
It’s time to take your photography up a notch. Read on to find out how…
Manual Monday. If you’re not reading your manual every day, I encourage you to at least read it once a week on Monday. The rest of the week you can read other technical books on photography, lighting, etc. But reserve Monday for your manual. If you’re feeling inspired, post an image with something you learned or tried after reading your manual!
Twitter Tuesday. On Tuesday, I’ll retweet anyone who is tweeting their images with the hashtag #tasra365. So make sure to use the hashtag so we can all see your daily images!
Theme Thursday starting tomorrow. Got ideas for themes? Post in the comments and I’ll add them. We’ll see how many tasra365-ers we can get to shoot on the same theme each week. Tomorrow’s theme: Celebrate.
Feature Friday starting this week. I want to feature YOU! Send me your story—long or short. I’ll link back to your work and hopefully get you a few more visitors! I’ll also start going through the list of photogs on the Join Me page too. Make sure your link is on the list!
Today’s image was me literally chasing the sunset. As I was leaving the library tonight I saw these incredible ominous clouds with bold blues and pinks, but the trees were blocking my view. So I hopped in my car and started driving, chasing down those clouds, praying they would stay until I found a clear spot.
I have no idea how long I drove winding down neighborhoods and streets I’d never been down, but finally I found a clearing. That’s when I parked my car and shot this image from my driver’s seat with the window rolled down. It was an exhilerating chase, yet somehow fitting for my 100th image. Have you ever done anything like that?
Specs: Nikon D50, ISO 1600, 50 mm, 1/80 @ f/1.8. Processed in Lightroom to increase black, then added Kubota action Anime Bold CS2 and Dragon Queen to enhance color and soften image.
Manual: Page 72—Naming Folders. I’ve gone through the entire manual now so I’ll be repeating pages. Moving forward, I’ll just list the page and title unless something significant jumps out at me OR when I get a new camera and start all over! Subtle hint to Santa.
Images: Christian del Rosario. One of the Emerging Photographers of the Year from Photofocus. I’m thinking about adding all the links to photographers I’ve discovered during this journey on a separate page. Do you think that would be helpful? Maybe even categorize them. Let me know your thoughts!
