The sun made an unscheduled appearance today after the weekend's torrential rains (rumour has it the clouds are gone for the next few days as well), so I had a little photo shoot on the kitchen table in the morning light.
You've seen these before in a pretty average progress picture. I attempted to photograph my house tape measures again, this time using my new Nikon on auto setting without flash and a 50mm 1:1.4 lens (as recommended by Sonja and seconded by the dude at the camera shop).
In full, but shaded, natural light
In full natural sunlight - look at those shadows!
I think shadows can be fun in some circumstances (especially when you're walking in late afternoon and the sun is low in the sky behind you, and your shadow is cast in front of you as you stroll up the road, rendering your body about 8 feet tall and skinny as a super model. That's when I admire my shadow and think smugly: girl, you look gooooood!). hehe.
Like in these pictures, where my stout little houses are casting shadows worthy of a four-story Manhatten walk up!
I've got SO far to go, learning how to use my new camera. Interesting that I should receive a note from Interweave about the release of this new book just yesterday. I immediately added it to my Christmas list!
