Parts of a Whole aka How I learned to love the macro setting

So I don't know how I wonkyfied the sizes, sorry about that in advance. This made me absolutely love my macro setting, which I have never used before!

My #1:

For the rest, I couldn't pick just 4 more! So I have 6 total since I am a terrible decision maker (although I did narrow it down from 84):


Not my best work and way late but I just didn't have time.

No contest this round, unless the majority would like one.

Next Assignment

Time to practice our macro-shots ladies and gents!

Photograph bugs, insects, or spiders. Post your top 5, picking your top 1.

I thought it would be interesting to have a photo contest for this one with our top one. Agree/disagree?

Remember, no editing in photoshop or similar. What you see is what you get.

Due Aug. 31.

Shadows and Reflections (kind of incomplete)

Ok, the first picture is kind of a play on the word shadow, since Dixie is my shadow as part of her job. Will add more as I can.

Better Late than never Colors

I did reds and pinks since I couldn't decide. The only new thing I used was the color isolate feature on my P&S.

Month-long Assignment

Photograph the alphabet! (Note to self: carry a card to remember what you've photograohed)

Assignment 4

(Yes, assignment 3 isn't posted yet. My mac is in the shop and the initial diagnosis is a fried hard drive. Most affected part? documents and photos. Damn it.)

Reflections and shadows. Choose your best 5. No editing.

Assignment 3

Pick a color and then take pictures of anything you like as long as it is your chosen color. Pick your top 5 and post. As always, no editing in photoshop or other imaging software.

Due: Monday, August 10

Not my best work

It was a long and somewhat difficult week, so I did not give this assignment as much time or attention as I should have.

This would be much more fun if it came on an exploding tape :-p

The Next Assignment:

Due: August 3

Share up to 10 photos that:

freeze motion and convey motion

You need to do both, but not in the same photo

And stick with the same rules as last time, no tweaking in Photoshop. That keeps the playing field level and helps everyone shoot more carefully.
