I have embarked upon a 365 day challenge to photograph a picture a day, according to a theme.

Day 106 - Photograph Diagonal or Vertical lines We went into Katikati today to check out the Art and Mural Festival, and while we were walking around, we came across this. We did wonder what would make someone create something like this in town . . . EXIF: D810 with nifty fifty at f2.8 and 1/640 at ISO 64. I give you Diagonal, vertical and horizontal lines: Until tomorrow MerranG

Day 105 - Photograph Texture Well I could rattle on for ages about texture, and how it's recurring theme, or I could just share exif data . 365 Day Challenge, Frame Light, Pictures, Photos, Grimm

Day 105 - Photograph Texture Well I could rattle on for ages about texture, and how it's recurring theme, or I could just share exif data and the image with you. Exif: D810 with nifty 50, ISO 64, 1/6400sec, f1.8. Usual curves and sharpening post. I give you texture: Until tomorrow MerranG

Day 104 - Photograph Colour Colour - hmmm. We had some very colourful nasturtiums for tea last night - but there are no more in the garden today. Today I went to Tauranga again, to pick up something to study for my photography (more later ;) ). While there, I saw something that was truely colourful. So today, I give you colour: Taken with the D810 and nifty fifty 50mm f1.8, at f2.8 and 1/125 sec. I forgot to set my WB, so in post changed it to daylight K5500, and did my usual triple curves…

Day 103 - Photograph Light and shadow LOL - again, today, I have gone out with my D200IR camera and the Helinon 135mm f2.8 lens. This lens is totally manual. It does not have a chip in it at all, so the camera has no idea what it is that you have just shoved in front of the sensor. I have to set the aperture manually - like in the old days with film when you turned the ring around until the aperture was as open or closed as you wanted it. I also nearly always shoot in full manual mode…

Day 102 - Photograph Texture Another day of texture. 365 Day Challenge, Frame Light, Waves, Pictures, Outdoor, Photos, Outdoors, Ocean Waves, Outdoor Games

Day 102 - Photograph Texture Another day of texture. Wow. You know - I so love the drama that is created with IR photos. My D200IR is such a joy to me. I have been trialling an old Helinon 135mm 2.8 lens on it. Of course, with the crop factor, it is more like a 200mm lens, and it's age means closest focus is around 1.2m. Because we cannot see IR light, focus is a bit of a problem. IR light does not focus on the same plane as visible light, it focus's either just behind or just in front of…

Day 101 - Photograph a Circle I am a day late, I know. Circle - its funny how I find this one such a difficult one every time. But I remembered, I have my sewing machine out to make some stuff for my photography. (I made my own scrim, and am working on a soft box). Lots of circles on my sewing machine. EXIF: D810, Tamron 90mm 2.8 at f4.2, 1/40 sec (interesting, I thought the blur was the DOF, maybe it is the SS - what do you think?), spot metering, custom WB. So here is a circle: Until…

Day 100 - Photograph a decorative object Firstly, I want to say - WOW I made it to day 100! I am nearly one third of the way through this challenge. Yes, there have been a couple of days I have been unable to take a photo due to health issues, but I have caught up again by doubling up another day. 100 days of photographing something every day. I initially started this challenge thinking it would be a fantastic way to get to know my new camera. Little did I know what way my life would take…

Day 99 - Photograph a flower Yay - I am so happy to be photographing something that is not abstract! It is Springtime. In fact, today is the Spring Equinox, the day that night and day are of equal length. The day that the sun rises directly in the East, and sets directly in the West. I celebrated the equinox today by doing two photoshoots. It is my goal to do two a day, 5 days a week. I just love portraiture! Honestly, I never thought I would, being a die hard landscape photographer, but…

Day 98 - Photograph a House Number A different kind of photo today! After weeks of light and shadow and texture and patterns etc, we have something different. Now as a paper girl, I see lots of different house numbers. There is an endless variety. But unfortunately, I am looking at them in the dark, and I am sure people don't want me lighting up their front yards with my strobes at 3am! So instead, I went out locally and made some photos of neighbours house numbers. In fact, here in NZ we…

Day 97 - Photograph texture First - my EXIF data: D810, Samyang 14mm 2.8 at f4, ISO 64, ss 1/80, custom WB, metering - other. Texture - everything is texture isn't it? Satin and silk = smooth. Bark and gravel = rough. So what sort of texture? I chose to photograph texture that we see around us all the time. In our gardens, on our streets, in our parks. Because I am using a super wide angle lens on a full frame camera, it creates interesting perspective. I have chosen to leave this just as it…

Day 96 - Photograph Light and Shadow Today we went to Tauranga. We incorporated getting some supplies for a new born shoot I have coming up, with picking up our son who was returning from camp. (To see the newborn stuff go check out my fb page at www.facebook.com/framinglightphotography .) So we are standing there chatting to my son and his companion, finding out about the exciting things they have been up to over the weekend, and I suddenly notice something of interest. Light and Shadow! I…

Day 95 - Illustrate a Haiku A Haiku - a verse consisting of three lines, the first line of which has seven syllables, the second has five, and the third has seven again. A Haiku normally does not rhyme. What to write a Haiku about, and how to illustrate it? Well, when Himself came home from work today, he said, "Let's go for a sail". "Let's go out to the boat and take her for a bit of a buzz", I replied. "There might not be enough wind". So, we drank our hot drinks and headed out. Once…

Day 94 - Photograph Texture Exif data for today. D810 with Tamron 90mm 2.8 at f3.2 1/60sec ISO 64 WB - custom set. My usual post processing as per day 92 with the addition of a blue filter to reduce brightness of yellow/green cast in image. I actually went out to take a picture of Tuhua covered in cloud. It looks like an active volcano when the cloud just hovers about the summit. But then, while talking to a neighbour, I spotted this beauty. It reminded me of my post the other day when I…

The wonderful thing about RAW is that if you get the WB wrong in camera, you can always correct it later. Of course, I prefer to get it right in camera, but sometimes we stuff up ;). Nikon D810 with Tokina 90mm at f8.0 and 1/125, ISO 64, matrix metering. I normally use spot metering, so that what I am focusing on, which is usually the…

Day 92 - Photograph Texture I remember as a child, laying in the dandelions on the lawn, looking up at the shapes of clouds. I think I used to spend hours watching clouds, and seeing things in their shapes. Clouds have always interested me. Their shapes, colour, form and texture. So much variety. You know, it gets more difficult to think of something interesting to say as these themes repeat. So instead, I shall just talk about how I made the image. Firstly, I shot this with my D810, with…

Day 91 - Photograph Patterns Patterns. I took the D810 loaner out for a walk today, looking for patterns. It is an interesting thing when you have your mind focused on an idea, a theme, a subject. Once you focus on something - you see it all around you. Patterns patterns everywhere, but what will make a good photograph? Several years ago, we bought ourselves a Dr Zeus Tree. It is a member of the Aloe family, and is intriguing in its difference from other similar looking plants like the…
