Haha. So this week, my photo didn't turn out quite as I expected. But I learned something and that is what this is all about, right? (Oh, and to actually pick up my camera more often.)
Freeze motion is a cool idea and you can get some amazing shots, like this one.
Or I love how you can see all the particles of water in the air in this one.
Knowing the theme, I had a great idea. I was going to get a picture of a balloon popping.
It is really hard. Balloons pop very rapidly. They are gone in a instant. Tyler recommended taking a video and then trying to take a still shot from the footage. I told him that was missing the point of using the camera in the first place. But for future reference, if you need a picture of a balloon popping, try using video.
Most of my pictures are more of the now-you-see-it-now-you-don't variety. In a couple, you can see part of the balloon pieces, but more often than not, it just disappears. Take a look for yourself.
So...not so much on the balloon popping. I took a famous levitating shot. See how Daisy doth float above the floor.
I also thought about taking a picture of the snow falling since we have had so much recently. (Spoiler: It is snowing as I write this as well.) I only snapped one picture outside because it was cold. (Duh.)
I tried a spray bottle, but it is really hard to use the spray bottle and also get far enough away to take a picture.
I finally settled on a water shot. They always seem to do the trick.
I figured that with more time and motivation, I could have gotten a better shot of something, but I'm okay with what I have. And like I said, I picked up the camera when it would have just been sitting there.
Next up, B&W BARRIER. That is open to a lot of interpretation. We'll see what I come up with.
