I'm waiting for my Nyquil to kick in, so I have a little time to play with some new pictures. I went out on a "photo safari" in Washington, DC, last weekend and had a fantastic walk around Connecticut Ave with a little group of folks led by a local photographer, PJ Barbour. He was a great teacher to our bunch...we all held our cameras out and looked at him hopefully as we tried to get the perfect adjustments to capture the local scenery. It was a great experience and I'd highly recommend it if you're around this area...there's one in Old Town Alexandria next weekend and I'd go if I wasn't going to be up in Pennsylvania eating turkey until I bust. Here's the link: ThingstodoDC.
This is one of my fave shots and I used some PSE tricks to pump it up a few notches. I don't remember what the building actually is, but the way the sun was coming through the leaves and bouncing around the curves of the building it was just gorgeous!
Here are few more shots that I haven't messed with yet...but I still think they're good as is.
This one is a "roaring door" with the reflection of the leaves in the glass.
This is view of Gandhi from in front of the Indian Embassy. I need to edit that little nugget out of the bottom of the shot. :)
I wasn't trying to get a silhouette shot of this plant, but I think this came out really cool!
A candid shot of PJ trying to get us all sorted out...all that aperture, exposure and stuff!! haaaaaaaa
We all practiced getting our shutter speed right to capture a big leaf toss. This is my best one...PJ posed for us (and threw a lot of leaves).
My little green pills are settling in, so I'm off. I have lots of craft ventures to share but haven't had time to sit down and compose: crochet, glittery ornaments, paper boxes, photography. I've got a little bit of everything going on and a whole lot of nothing getting done! haaaaaaaaaaaaaa Cheers to you and your November!
