Weekly Photo Challenge: Satisfaction (Macro Photography)

Last October, I purchased a set of extension tubes with the intention of starting a new project…macro photography!

My first go round using the extension tubes didn’t go as planned and out of frustration, I stored the tubes away and forgot about them.

A couple of weeks ago, I took my camera out to a nearby sunflower field and it was the perfect opportunity to give the extension tubes another try.

I’m pleased to say that I’m satisfied with the results! Now that I’ve gotten the hang of working with the extension tubes, I’m looking forward to using them again in the near future.

What’s satisfying to you?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

I recently went to the National Building Museum to experience an unusual and creative exhibit known as the Hive.

The Hive is built entirely ofย  wound paper tubes (over 2700 of them) that are recyclable, lightweight, and renewable. The tubes vary in sizes and reaches a height of 10 feet. The paper tubes interlock to create domed chambers and a stunning visual effect.

The coolest aspect of the “Hive” is that in its’ smaller chambers, there are tubular instruments ranging from simple drum-like tubes to chimes suspended within the space demonstrating its’ unique acoustic properties. Here are just a few of the fun pictures I captured!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta

The theme for this week’s photo challenge is “Delta” which symbolizes transitions. The photo I chose for the challenge was from a recent visit to the Harbor at sunset. I think it fits the challenge perfectly because there’s nothing more beautiful than a day transitioning to night.

What represents Delta in your life?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

In the last few posts, I’ve shared photos from my adventure in the metro tunnels. For this week’s photo challenge, I wanted to share a photo with a different perspective of the tunnels.

What images are reflected back to you through your camera phone?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise!

As I continue my photography journey, I’m always surprised by the unlimited possibilities for discovery. From beautiful landscapes to beautiful people, I love that with a click of the camera, you can capture it all.

This weekend, I did something totally different with photography…I took my first hands-on studio course and I’m excited to share the results with you!

It was fun, but also a bit intimidating because of all the technical aspects you must remember about lighting. I must also become more familiar with posing people to create great photos.

So much to learn, but I’m up for the challenge! ๐Ÿ™‚
