The other day when I taking some of the Lego portraits Miss Lily decided that even though she’s probably been photographed more than any other cat ever, she should be the centre of attention not some Lego man. She jumped up on the table and plonked herself down in front of me demanding to be photographed at one point she even started trying to lick the macro lens.
A quick Photo of Lily I took the other day, I walked up to the screen door and there she was waiting for me.
I converted it to black and white in lightroom afterwards because i was experimenting and I really like the way it looks.
NSW is currently having a heatwave so I’m off to sit under my air conditioner all day.
I have spent most of this week inside hibernating with the flu, reading books and watching movies and generally not doing much at all. But I did have sometime to spend on my computer playing with Lightroom 4.
I have never really done much post processing with my photos mostly because I’m not really 100% sure what I’m doing so I tend to shy away from it. I know enough to get rid of a red eye or transfer to Black & White but that’s about it.
So I was amazed at what I could do in 20 mins just playing. I didn’t read a manual or use the help section I literally just pushed some buttons and clicked the mouse.
I love this photo, Lily is sitting in front of an open window and before I moved the curtain to take her photo she had been prancing along the window sill trying desperately to catch all the Autumn leaves tumbling along outside. As soon as I moved the curtain she stopped and looked at me with that what I wasn’t doing anything look.
As I said before I have spent most of the week doing basically nothing trying to get over the flu, you would think that I would have spent a great deal of time on the couch. You’d be wrong, the three seater that can comfortably fit me lying down (sometimes it’s good to be on the short side) is apparently only just big enough to fit one small cat and nothing else. I managed to grab this photo and her highness stretched and yawned and rolled over.
Both photos were taken with my Nikon D300s and my 50mm Lens at ISO 200 F2.8 1/60s, a bit of flash and some playing afterwards in Lightroom 4. I have to say I am very happy with it can’t wait to play with it some more.
Have a great Weekend !
The other day I was trying to practice some flower photography and Lily decided she wanted the flower, nothing was going to get between her and her prey. Which if you know her is quite funny she’s actually terrified of anything bigger than a moth unless of course there is a window pane between her and what ever she is hunting then she’s as brave as any lion. Here is the huntress in all her glory.
So my watch word for the 2nd day of my Photography Challenge was Strange.
The Photo is of my cat Lily, the picture is not exactly strange but 2 seconds before this she had her head stuck in pair of shoes getting stoned, I didn’t manage to catch that but I did catch her self satisfied grin afterward.
Nikon D300s 35mm ISO 200 1/60s F1.8
This last week over Christmas, My Mum and I went to the Beach to visit my Grandmother. While we were there we went to a Lake that is near by and next to one of the Jetties was this Pelican who very obligingly posed for some photos.
