Today after gymnastics I took Blake over to the play area at the mall to wear him out a little more.

Today I was playing with shutter speed and decided to do the week 2 assignment from this tutorial.
First, I placed black construction paper behind my kitchen sink to add contrast (and hide my ugly tile…have I mentioned I hate my sink. It made of white plastic material and it’s impossible to get stains out of it). Next, I place a vase upside down in the sink. Finally, I changed my camera to TV (shutter priority) placed it on my tripod, and started adjusting my shutter speed and shooting. I also adjusted my ISO at the higher shutter speeds. The only post processing I did to these files is a slight sharpening and adding the water mark. The first few are pretty blown but you can still see the effect of the slower shutter speed.

It has been snowing and frigidly cold all day today. I hate snow and cold with a deep fiery passion but I have to admit it makes a decent subject. These were all taken from the relative comfort of my kitchen. I just opened the Arcadia door and started shooting. I decided to focus more on the shutter speed today and made a rare trip to the TV (shutter priority) section of my camera. I think the differences in the falling snow is interesting. I put the shutter speed under each picture and you can see the aperture if you hover over it. At 1/8 you can barely tell it’s snowing. As the shutter speed increases it becomes crystal clear.
