The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge is ‘fresh’. As this is late March in urban/suburban New England, there is nothing fresh directly outside my window. Think very dirty snow. March is, in fact, my least favorite month, with April coming in at a close second. So instead of going outside, I created a still life with fresh orange juice in mind. I need to have themed photo projects more often, as it makes me really think about my camera and how I might want to change various settings for a better photograph. Generally, I concentrate only on shutter speed, aperture, and iso. This time I considered focus point, metering, white balance, and, hmmm, don’t even know what it is called: ai servo vs one shot, etc.
Anyway, this was fun. If you have any suggestions for improving this shot please feel free to voice them. I’m a relative neophyte, who is eager to learn.
PS, We can’t have one camera out in this house without the other one entering the picture. B. saw my topic and did his own study. I think his is decidedly better so I am putting that one up as well. Here’s his:
He worked the background better, IMO, his lighting is definitive, and his perspective is interesting. So there you have it, more ‘fresh’.
