Not sure if I mentioned that my sweetheart bought me a new camera! He noticed that for the past year or so I have not been doing much in the creative realm, and wanted to inspire me. It really did!
This camera is much more intricate than my little Canon that I have been using for years. Although, I loved the photos it took, I always shot on “auto”. Now, I am learning how to shoot manual and reading about the basics of photography. I’m really excited about something for the first time in a while..(well, besides him of course lol).
These are the first two photos I have ever shot in manual, and I am loving learning more every day. Heck, I’ve had to spend a lot of time just reading the manual that came with my camera bundle and my Dslr book for Dummies. I love that I am learning something new.
Back in January, the housing program I am in decided to move a few people around. I was one of those who was moved into a smaller apartment. I actually love the complex more than the other. It is much quieter here and I am closer to the ocean.
When I saw how small the kitchen was my first thought was, “It needs a window”. I love to have a window to look out of while I cook or do the dishes. So I hatched a plan.
I found the window frame at a local antique fair, and then had one of my own photographs enlarged to fit. So, now I have a window “view” over my sink. I can also switch out the photograph if I’d like to change the view!
This gallery contains 9 photos.
Except for doing a few chores, I spent most of the day staying warm under the covers. I decided to start a new painting using the app. I like how this one turned out. I’m not sure I’m really even done with it, but I think so. I am practicing making trees, mountains…well, pretty much everything. Click on it to see full size.
I have been so exited since starting this blog 6 weeks ago. My writing has been reborn, and improving. I have a new love of photography that had also lain dormant for so long, and tonight, I tried something totally new. Now, it’s not “real” painting, but I had so much fun creating this with a painting app in Windows 8. I know it’s amateurish but I really enjoyed working with it!
