Week 5 – 031/365
Before I start, I have to announce that today marks one month since I started my blog! The DPS Assignment group generally celebrates every 50th submission (“Milestones”), but I really wanted to celebrate my first completed month.
Ok, I kind of lied. Unintentionally however. I did say yesterday that today’s entries would be of the self-portrait variety. However, after about an hour of shooting, not one came out correctly!
So, instead, I waited a few hours until it got dark and I said to myself “Self, why not play with the flashlight?”, to which I answered “Why am I just sitting here?”.
So I searched the interwebs for a good ‘tutorial’ (or a reference for the ISO, focusing, mode I should use, etc) and established that most people used manual, a low ISO and hoped for the best in regard to focusing.
Ok, ok, I kind of lied (Again. Bad Babs.). Here is a non-entry self-portrait for the 365. I was playing in between shots and got this. I wanted to see how much I could do in the 15+ seconds I had that was not a planned drawing.
