Category Archives: Photography
This weekend the weather was really beautiful and I just wanted to be outside, so I chucked my Macro Lens on played around photographing so beautiful flowers.
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.
I had so much fun taking Lego portraits last week with my Macro Lens that I decided to whip it out again today and shoot. I focused on taking macro pictures of ordinary objects around the house that had interesting textures, you’ve probably seen some of them before, it seems I am completely incapable of walking past bricks and not taking a picture so I’ll apologise now if your sick of them. Every time my Mum looks through my pics she always says “More bricks?” what can I say I like ‘em.
All photos were taken with my 105mm Macro lens and then edited in Lightroom to be black and white, I am loving the monochrome look at the moment.
So lately I haven’t been feeling the greatest nothing serious just a cold and a few days laid up with a migraine. I haven’t really felt up to blogging or photographing anything and then today I woke up and felt well enough to dig out my Macro lens and play with Lego for a while.
I loved Lego as a kid my brother and I would tip all of ours on the floor, and (we had tons between to the two of us) go for broke spending hours building little cities or houses making up games, sometimes just trying to build a taller tower than the other, we always had lots of fun. When we were teenagers both of us gave all our Lego away coz you know we were grown ups now and grown ups don’t play with Lego.
Lego was pretty basic when I was playing with it the little people only had the one expression and you were doing pretty good if your Lego people were distinguishable between male and female. Now days though the people at Lego had gone all out and the Mini figures are simply mind blowing. I at 28 have become obsessed with Lego all over again, but just the people.
Today I decided I would take portraits of some of my Mini figures I only have a couple at the minute, but I had so much fun today I want more. I hope you enjoy them. All Photos were taken with my Nikon Micro 105mm Macro Lens. All photos were edited in Lightroom afterwards, I used several different filters and effects, today was really all about playing and having fun.
I have been so busy the last couple of weeks I have barely had time to think let alone pick up my camera and practice any photography. This past weekend though everything calmed down and I was able to practice a technique I have been reading about, Contre-Jour.
Contre-Jour Photography is when you point your camera directly to the light source, and it usually results in your subject turning into a silhouette. The term Contre-Jour is a french term and it means against the daylight, which I think is so pretty. I have always loved these shots when I’ve taken them accidentally and I really enjoyed trying to produce them deliberately.
It’s been really hot here lately and so whenever it cools off and I can have fresh air instead of air conditioning I fling open all the windows and doors. Lily is an inside cat and she always has been, however in her mind she is a brave adventurous cat who should be allowed outside when ever wants, never mind that for the first three years when she went outside on her lead she would come back inside to go to the bathroom, in her mind she should be outside. So while you guys get the pictures I get the desperate meows and impassioned yowling to be let out.
Enjoy The Pictures !
All Photographs were taken on my Nikon D300s with my 35mm Lens, the only post processing that I did was to convert to black and white and crop a tad.
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.
