I was having a doll photo session today and trying out a new location in front of a gold curtain in the computer room. Most photos went well as I posed the dolls on the window frame but for a couple I put them on top of the printer. The printer is perfectly level but as I’m not keen on getting down on my knees so much now I bent down a bit to take them. I sometimes have a bit of a problem with holding the camera straight and this position made that problem much worse. I was pretty annoyed as correcting the problem in the photo editor would have meant Penny lost her feet which would also spoil the picture. I might have to just do something arty with it.
For those who want to know Penny is a Barbie friend called Summer from the Fashion Fever era 2004-2007.
I think I took this photo at random in Penguin when I was there in August. It’s just one of those random photos I take sometimes. I don’t know if anyone else does this but sometimes I just point and shoot. I see an image in my head of what I want to capture at the time but it doesn’t quite come off as a photo. This one shows a darkened room with a cheery veiw of the sea out the window. I don’t know what I expected but I didn’t get it.
I found this photo from my holiday that I thought rather funny. I had heard the chopper coming in to land and whirled around to see it. I quickly took a photo of it and was pleased with myself for being able to capture it in time. I was not so pleased with myself when I viewed it later on my laptop. It looks like the chopper is about to land on the lady’s head. I had not realised the ladies were even there at the time. Dam!
Also the chopper looks more like a model and not a full sized chopper at all. It looks quite small in fact. Oh well! I guess I’ll get another chance some time.
What’s wrong with this picture? What’s right with it! I was looking for something for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge that had the letter L in the name so I thought “I know, my tablet.” However the flash reflected badly on the screen which was dirty and it is slightly out of focus as well. I was about to delete it as I do all awful photos and then I thought, “No, better keep it for Monday. Then I will delete it.” I have too.
It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. Maybe I’m getting better at taking pictures or something??? Well I hope so. I’ve been finding it harder to find one of my bloopers. One day while my friend Phillip was here we took the dogs for a drive. We came across some play equipment and I thought it would be fun to get a picture of one of the dogs in the little kid’s jeep. Toby never stops moving so I chose Teddy but he wasn’t thrilled about it so I got lousy photos. I ruined the best one myself by getting my shadow in it. Here they are.
