Finding the light & losing!!…

So where was I? Oh yes!! Shimelle’s LYPLYP class assignment #1 ‘Finding your Lighting’…take photo’s of a single item in various locations & in different light conditions around your home…
 
WIP1 …I chose my favourite Starbucks mug…& was quite surprised at the different light situations in each of my downstairs rooms!…No flash was used in any of these shots.

Assignment #2 was to photograph flowers outside in the garden from different angles…I had intended to only shoot a particular hanging basket, but ended up capturing the rambling rose & sweet peas as well!! I took soooo many pictures but here are my favourite three…

WIP  …with the number of images I captured for these two assignments, I couldn’t help but reflect on what an expensive hobby photography must have been before the invention of digital camera’s!! Aren’t we lucky these days?!!! My only sin now is that I organise them all neatly into files & folders on my PC…but don’t print too many off!! Usually only when I’m planning to use them on a LO or in an album…methinks I’ll have to rethink this!! My good friend Karen has started printing off a quantity of photo’s each month to keep in a normal photo album & I think I will be following suit, otherwise all these images could just get lost in the ether….& that would be sad!

I have to get my head around assignment #3 this evening as the Scrappy prompts start tomorrow morning &I can’t wait to get stuck into those!!!

I’ll close on a happy note…well I was happy anyway!! At my Weight Watchers weekly weigh in this morning, I had lost another 2lbs!!! So in three weeks I have lost the same amount as it took me three months to lose at the beginning of the year!! I really hope I can keep this up!!!

Thanks for dropping by!

I find there's a real difference in light in my rooms as well....though in general it's a pretty dark house...not good for photography at all!!
Your flower pics are lovely.

Yup, our house is very hard to find light in too, it's long and thin with no windows on the sides, just the ends. I was trying to take photos of a coffee mug too and they are all dark.

I think printing some pics out every month is a brilliant idea. Get them off the computer and into an album!

Great pics, I've found these first prompts really interesting - looking forward to the scrapping ones now! xx

Well done you on the weight loss,am a tad behind in class - nearly left you a comment the other night as I have the dreaded Cellulitis in my elbow - and needed some thoughts on it-thank goodness it's subsiding now. Lovely photos of your flowers xx
