Here I am for part four, which I’ve been eagerly waiting to show you. 😀
On 10/5, we decided to go disc golfing with our cousins—which had it successes and failures. I took a lot of cool pictures, but we all stunk at disc golf. 😉 Plus, their were some not-so-good attitudes along the way. But you know what? It was nice to just spend time with the family, and worth any of the minuses we might have experienced!
Welcome to part three of my October 2017 vacation. I am working on catching back up with school, editing, everyday tasks, etc. So I decided to pace this series just a bit more, instead of posting a new part each day.
10/4/17- Was the day decided upon to celebrate dad and Josiah’s Oct. birthdays. It’s early as dad’s birthday is the 17th, and Josiah’s is the 24th–but our grandparents won’t be there on their birthdays so…
I am back with day two, part two of our vacation. On this particular day I was rather bored and took many random pictures–the majority of which are boring and dreadful. 😉 😀 So instead of sharing THOSE dreadful photos…I found 22 which I can narrate the day with.
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.
Last y’all heard I was pining away for a good snowfall to play in. This post is to tell you…I got one! Now I want a better one though. Several inches this time? Please?…. 🙂 .
But this post will also be giving you some other updates on my life currently.
I already did a post on Lucillian Photography called Snow Portraits which you can take a look at if you haven’t already. Here are some random ones that I’m pretty sure are NOT on my other blog.
p.s These are blissfully unedited 🙂 .
2. The ‘Horrors’ of High School.
I am balancing a fairly big workload right now in school. Thankfully, I have deadlines so I’m not stuck on one thing for forever.
Not pictured: several other things, the most notable of which is my math course for this year. I am NOT posting a picture of that 🙂 .
3. Taking Silhouette Photos.
One thing I am semi-obsessed with right now in photography- silhouettes. They’re not those impressive sunset silhouettes. They’re just window silhouettes. I’m only posting one of them because I want the rest for another post later on.
4. Blowing Things Up.
Now, lest you think I am secretly an atomic bomb keeper–I am speaking of accidentally blowing up a half-boiled egg in the microwave and having to clean up the colossal mess that ensued. 🙂
5. Shooting People While They Shoot Others.
This is another heading which could get me into ‘trouble’. But y’all know about the fun kids have shooting each other with Nerf guns?
6. My Mild Obsession With Photographing These Roses.
When our friends were over Mr. H bought his wife some roses. I was so thrilled as I love roses (yeah, they weren’t for me, lol.) because now I could take some photos. They actually lasted pretty long. The very last photo is the last photo I got to take of them before they met their demise 😦 .
