Project 365 – 2010: Day 26

 

When you live out in the country, you have to deal with the wildlife.  On a regular basis we are visited by a black bear that takes a liking to our trash.  Who knew that trash could result in a photograph?!

This is the most intense drummer that I have seen.  This shot came out interesting with the effects lighting reflecting off of the shield in front of the drum kit.

Project 365 – 2010: Day 18

This was the first SLR camera that I owned and the camera started it all.  It was originally owned by my mother and her photography work with it got me started.

Project 365 – 2010: Day 17

Cats take the best photographs.  Is he a cute sleeping cat, or is he letting you know he’s mad and about to pounce? Only he knows!

Project 365 – 2010: Day 16

The latest edition to our family is a little three month old kitten.  He was found by some firefighters tucked up into their firetruck.  They gave him to our vet where we got him.  He is a little sweetheart.  He has taken a liking to my wife and lays down by her whenever possible.

Project 365 – 2010: Day 15

Didn’t get time to post this one last night.  My daughter got treated yesterday to a peticure and just had to show it off.  Of course, being a photographer, I saw the shot and took it!

Photo details: Exposure time 1/60 sec, Aperture f/5, ISO 200, Focal Length 122 mm, Lens Nikon AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 1.4-5.6 G ED, Camera Nikon D40X.

Project 365 – 2010: Day 14

Before going on our trip to Disney last month, I had this shot in mind.  This one actually took quite long to set up due to the pedestrian traffic at the park.  Eventually the circumstances lined up and I was able to get the shot.  After I got the shot, we went over and had him take our photograph.  That’s when I told him about the shot.  

Photo details: Exposure time 1/250 sec, Aperture f/8, Focal Length 55mm, ISO-100, Lens Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 G II ED, Camera Nikon D40X.

Project 365 – 2010: Day 13

So, I was slacking yesterday!  Well, not really.  Between work and meetings it was a 14+ hour day and I just came home and went to bed.  I’ll make up for it this weekend and post an extra photograph for you all.

This one is an example of a perspective shot.  This is the lobby at Disney’s Coronado Springs resort.  It was taken with the flash off to get the full color and effect that the room brought.

Photo details: Exposure time 1/125 sec, Aperture f/4.5, Focal Length 19mm, Lens Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 G II ED, Camera Nikon D40X.

Project 365 – 2010: Day 12

No matter how you look at it, the geodesic dome (a.k.a., Spaceship Earth) at Epcot just looks cool!

Project 365 – 2010: Day 11

"Project 365" projects are extremely difficult by their very nature.  So, I’m going to modify the rules of my project.  My project will be to post a different photograph that I have taken every day.  I will attempt to get as many daily photographs as possible, but there will be times when the post will contain a photograph from a previous photo shoot.

Today’s photo is another one that was taken last month in Disney.  To the untrained eye, this would appear to be a vintage photo taken out west in the wild west era. However, this is what you get when you put together a vintage-looking scene with modern technology. By taking the picture from a moving train with an authentic looking background, then converting it to black and white using Photoshop, the result comes out to look like a vintage photograph.

Photo details: Exposure time 1/100 sec, Aperture f/3.8, Focal Length 22mm, Lens Nikon AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 G II ED, Camera Nikon D40X.
