Week 19 Building


This week I helped at the new victus farm, sustainable fish plant, hauling cement from the truck to build the water troughs. I was also charged with documenting the progress through photographs. While doing this I made this photograph above which I love because of how both Mike and the cement truck are framed perfectly in the door. However I was using my flash as fill light due to the contrasty midday sun and it didn't fire and I wished that Mike wasn't facing directly away from the camera and mostly hiding the water sprayer. So I quickly made another photograph but unfortunately he had moved just slightly which totally ruined the framing. I still like the one above more even with Mike facing so exactly away from camera. 

I also played the most epic game of Settlers of Catan and photographed the ending board to record its spectacularness. For fellow players there were exactly 2 places left to build settlements and they were only accessible by one person, no development cards left, and both longest road and largest army locked into one person without competition. What a game it was, and I even won purely by chance.

Week 11 Flowers

This week since there were so many flowers blooming I decided I should have my photograph of the week be of a flower. I was fortunate enough that a storm blew threw and then was followed by some lightly overcast hours. It made for a great time to photograph. There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green. I also like ho the plane of focus puts the tip of the inner part of the flower, the water droplets on the petal, and a line of green leaves in focus. I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
