Easy days, boy do I love easy days! Just a bit of shopping, a dinner with family and a cool night with my camera. Personally, I would prefer it not to be quite so cool already, but for some reason, those are the nights that I prefer to grab my camera for long exposures. I really have no idea why that is since I loathe being cold. I find it unbearable when my fingers and toes get cold and I’m one of those people where that happens too easily. It’s amazing how quickly my nose gets cold! My husband always saying “Yep, your nose is cold.” But despite all that, I still get out there with my camera, so that tells you how much I like playing with low light and bulb exposure setting.
The trick tonight was that I didn’t have a tripod with me or a way to create artificial light where ever I wanted to place it. So I had to play around a bit.
I had a lot of fun playing with my camera and these were my favorites. I’m such an amateur when it comes to photography, but I learn by doing. Stepping outside for just 30 to 45 minutes is enough alone time to rejuvenate me and when you add the anticipation of what is in the camera, well, that’s when you find me smiling.
