And what does that lovely header for this post mean? Why is there a roadway? Well…friends, I went somewhere. But that will come later. I will start with a semi-comprehensive look at the past…two or three weeks? Here we go.
We had a very random snowfall that was very tiny, and melted almost immediately. I did take a photo of a plant in it though…
And then a day or two after that, I got the opportunity to try out slow sync flash. You basically set a slow shutter speed (I mostly did 2 seconds or 2″) and spin in a circle while the flash fires. It makes for VERY weird photos but is nonetheless quite fun to do. And it’s especially cool if you’re outside at night.
You can also use objects. I did this one in my studio/office.
And then after a few days it was time to go to a conference! This is photo from in the car.
Then we got to the hotel…which wasn’t awful. But I still don’t really like it.
On Saturday, we were at the YMCA–when mom told us we were going on vacation NOW. We hadn’t packed. We didn’t even know where we were going…and our family of eight had two hours to pack. And one of those hours we would have people over. But…those people happen to be the family I am getting to do a newborn photo session with. So this was my first opportunity to get a peek at baby Eva Marie. And she’s adorable! I think the session is on Friday. I’m going for a studio look.
Our 1 and a 1/4 day ‘vacation’ was to our grandparents house. One night my grandpa showed me his father’s old film camera a bunch of other cool stuff that went with it. Sometime, I want to try film.
The I decided to try an interesting technique using a tiny fisheye lens.
Then we were home. And I took some pictures of our red bud tree.
Then some photos of unnamed one 🙂
And that’s pretty much all that I’ve been up to for fun.
What have y’all been doing?
Have you ever gone on unexpected vacations?
