Reflecting on May

I seem to have got myself a little muddled in my blog ordering recently. Anyone else getting things muddled as life begins to return to normal?

How are you feeling lately?

I can’t quite believe we are midway through 2021 already. I’m still going with my 365 project. Although it definitely feels more like a 52 week project now. The thing to remember is to keep going and keep growing.

Reflecting on May

Day 129

  • Settings = F1.8 1/1250 ISO 100

  • Inspiration = Family walk in nature
Dandelion wishes

Day 129

  • Settings = F1.8 1/2500 ISO 100

  • Inspiration = Oliver, he is just so photogenic

Day 135

  • Settings = F1.8 1/2000 ISO 100
  • Process = Bright sunlight, wanting to capture details in Buttercup.
  • Inspiration = Family walk and showing the boys the reflection of yellow under their chin. And the old myth it indicates if you like butter.

Day 136

  • Settings = F1.8 1/640 ISO 6400
  • Process = Dark, damp unlit outhouse, only natural light from a crack in the door behind me. Didn’t want to spook the nesting bird, moving slowly and quietly.
  • Inspiration = Nesting bird

Day 139

  • Settings = F1.8 1/800 ISO 140
  • Process = Capturing Alyssa at the entrance of the trampoline, framing her in the centre to create as much symmetry as possible. Also wanted the light to highlight her hair.
  • Inspiration = Alyssa on the trampoline
wispy hair

Day 147

  • Settings = F1.8 1/1000 ISO 100
  • Process = Focus on net, but trying to capture blurred action in frame.
  • Inspiration = Harvey’s birthday, this was Louis and William in the garden.

Day 151

  • Settings = F1.8 1/3200 ISO 110
  • Process = Exposing for sunlight. Focus on action/subject, sun flare and water to add texture.
  • Inspiration = Day didn’t go to plan, sometimes spontaneity is more fun.
