What gives, mother nature? Thursday was beautiful and sunny... as you can see clearly from the outfit pics I took in the afternoon. Friday rolls around and it's winter all over again! Though I wasn't happy about this, it made for the perfect theme of today's photos. So, if you wanna participate this weekend, why not try out this first theme? You don't have to, but it will be fun! How can you give a sense of winter in your photos, or how can you represent winter where you're from? I consider mine a farewell to the snow (hopefully) and a welcoming of spring! (hurry up already though please.). I'll start posting themes for future weekend's linkups throughout the week so you have more time to prepare!
Here are my shots:
Quite a change in weather from the other day, right?!
It was snowing, so I made sure to cover my camera in a plastic bag before trekking outside. I love how the trees in the background look like a foggy, mysterious place. Now show me what you got!!
Things I learned:
- Always cover your camera if there will be any hint of wetness.
- If you'll be standing in the same spot and want some free hands, an easy way to get yourself into focus is to use a remote and set your camera to "auto" for the first shot. It will focus on you and snap a pic. Changing the focus to "manual" immediately afterwards, setting the timer, and returning to the same spot ensures your hands will be remote-free and you'll still be in focus. It helps to mark your spot on the ground... in my case, footprints in the snow worked well.
Now one of my favs from last week:
Ashley looks so serene in her desaturated photos! Love it!
