“There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs.” - Ansel Adams

I know that these tulips are overexposed, but I love how delicate and ethereal the light makes them feel.

Week 11 - Composition: Negative Space

March 14, 2018 (073/365)  "I am always searching for more light and space."  - Santiago Calatrava

Week 11 - COMPOSITION: Negative Space [Minimize the composition to isolate your subject. The composition should be simple, thereby drawing your viewer to the subject.] #dogwoodweek11, #dogwood52, #dogwood2018

Week 3 - Technical: Full Manual

January 14, 2018  (014/365) • Forcing Spring

“Bulbs need so little and give back so much.” - Lauren Springer Ogden

Week 3 - TECHNICAL: Full Manual #dogwoodweek2, #dogwood52, #dogwood2018 • f/20 1/104 3mm ISO 125 [While the camera often determines shutter speed and aperture for the photographer, it doesn't know your creative intent. This week, challenge your self to assume creative control over the camera by using full manual mode. Select a subject where varying the aperture and / or shutter speed helps enhance the composition and visual qualities of the image.] Not exactly the clarity and color I intended, but I love the light and shadows and this project is all about learning and growing.
