Before the New Year was barely in the door I had two editing jobs and a writing assignment on my home desk. This is a good thing – I like the work and the clients and appreciate being busy. But it also challenged me to immediately put my word “Be Active” into use.
I have been taking walks pretty much every day. Many have been in the woods, and thanks to some cold weather many have even been with snow on the ground. I have been scrapbooking, which has made me very happy. And I have been playing with my camera.
This first set of images was taken in my garden right after the last snow fall. I have edited these images – they were a little too dark for my liking so I worked on them a bit in Adobe Elements.
The set below is from today, while I was waiting for my walking partner at the agreed upon place. These images are not edited – I was playing with manual settings versus automatic settings. The first two are varying the brightness on my manual exposure, while the third one is what the camera chose on automatic. An interesting lesson.
There are more things on my lists to tackle, but I am pleased overall with the progress of this first month.
