Something crazy happened today. I got a [tiny] sunburn!!! Not because it was that sunny… mostly because I am that pale. I met a friend at Silverdale Waterfront park and we headed out for a 4.5 mile trail run followed by lunch overlooking the water. Afterwards, I headed back to the park to do my “homework”. I am taking a photography workshop to learn how to get out of Auto Mode on my fancy camera. I gathered some driftwood and started messing with settings on my camera to see how they effected the picture. I am super visual so I wrote down my settings and stuck it in the picture. Then I got home and realized I could view all of that when I imported my pictures. Oh well, I still like pencil and paper.
Today’s goal was how to get a bokeh effect – blurred background – in pictures. I think I’m starting to get the hang of it.
Then I set off to take some “fun” pictures keeping my camera off Auto!
Driftwood everywhere you look.
Here are just a few others I snapped. It is supposed to rain for the next few days (and by that I mean the next EIGHT days) so I am happy I was able to get out and enjoy the sun, run, have a beer with a girlfriend and play with my camera. Happy Saturday!
