March 19th, Day 78: More Ranunculus

I stuck my Ranunculus in my light box the other day, the results of which you can see here.

As their blooms gets bigger and broader, I can’t help but take more photos. This is my first year of having some of these plants around the house, and I love them!

February 19th, Day 50: Me, Myself, and the lightbox

I made it to day fifty! Just 315 more days to go! Can she make it?

Question: What do you do when it’s getting late, you haven’t taken a single blog-worthy photo all day, and you can’t think of anything cool to put in your light box?

Answer: You put yourself in your light box. :)

Yes, I seem to be related to the infamous nose-less Voldemort. So what? ;)

January 6th, Day 6: Skills

Today, I have skillz.

I’m participating in a photo-of-the-day challenge that a fellow fPOE member began in anticipation of her upcoming birthday.

Each day brings a new specific challenge topic.

Today’s challenge was “spice” and as so many of the others did before me, I photographed spice literally. A few took creative license and did other things, but since I have an overflowing spice cupboard, I just went with it. :)

While the actual photographing process wasn’t new to me (I used my handy dandy light box), the post-processing was.

I wanted to try a white vignette, and so, with the help of Google I found a very helpful tutorial at Zoom Yummy.

 

 

March 10th: With Selective Focus

I built my light box today! It’s so much fun. To make it, I used the directions found here, at nickexposed.com.

I played in cardboard boxes as a kid...looks like not much as changed!

I quickly scavenged the apartment for anything and everything I could stick in there.

These two are my favorites.

Growing broccoli

 

The Ansco Clipper

Do either of these count as my ‘with selective focus’ ? I think so.

Remember tonight’s the start of Daylight Savings,  so set your clocks an hour forward!
