So in the spirit of improvement, I am going to post a photo a day. Not just as a reminder to keep my camera nearby, but to keep my brain working and thinking about new ideas and setups and to stay observant for the shots the world throws at me. I'll try to add in my thoughts, process (if any) and what I wanted out of it. I'm going to include both "luck shots" (environment/street) and hopefully the results from some projects I have in the works.
Feel free to critique!
So, in the Halloween-y spirit:DSC_0027

This is a pure luck shot. I nearly stepped on the guy while taking my lunchtime walk today. I do not possess an actual macro lens, but I do have some extension rings. Which I did not have with me. So, this is pure kit lens (18-55mm) shot at ISO 100 and f9 to try and get a little DOF and help make the kit lens a little sharper overall. Took lots of different angles and had lots and lots of misses on focus, the viewfinder on a D60 isn't too helpful in that regard : /. I liked this particular shot because the spider seems to looking for a better grip on the guy (he was still wiggling a little).
We'll see what tomorrow brings!
