Project 365: Day 6, Distractions…


Starting with Project 365 I have decided that, always carrying the camera with me would really help. Yesterday as I started for work as usual I decided to take some pictures. As I looked through them I was thinking to myself that there was some connection in these three pictures.

PS: Tomorrow Project 365 turns a week old. To celebrate I shall put up a blog summarizing the weeks highlights, things learnt, unlearnt and images that didn’t make it but deserve to be put up! So stay tuned!

Cheerio mates!

 

 

Project 365: Day 3, Water droplets on a rainy day..


I must admit, it’s just the third day and it’s not easy! Trying to come up with a new photograph everyday. I remember when I first bought my SLR moving from a point and shoot, I was supper excited. Everyday I was up, exploring with it, getting used to the manual mode. Slowly but surely that interest faded and other things took priority like studies and more recently work! But there is always a way to do things what you love doing. So here I am, still sweating it out, trying to balance out my love of reading, watching movies or documentaries, eating, travelling and doing photography!

So today’s image is the reason I skipped breakfast and even got late for work. By the time I was ready to leave the house I realised I had forgotten to brush my teeth! So I went back getting more late. I didn’t think the day would get any worse with the rains suddenly coming in, but I was so wrong! Out of the house and I have no cash! Bless the people who thought of ATMs, I was saved!

My setup consisted of the mineral water bottle with a small cut to create the drops and a plastic container with water filled up to the brim. Shots were made handheld with built-in flash, although I tried using a small LED torch, which sadly didn’t workout. No editing except converting the shots to black and white and adjusting the contrast.

Has anyone tried doing this? Would be delighted to get some great ideas. Do share in the comments section!

Cheerio mates!
