These are some of the shots I got after the party, using my camera with standard “daytime” settings. I wanted to play with blurs and such.
I was actually working on composing photos by cutting people off or out of the frame (or capturing them just as they walked into the frame). Here are some of the results.
That squirrel found a cupcake wrapper and was gnawing on it for all he was worth. It’s hard to tell from the photo because I was using a 17mm lens but I could have reached out and touched him. He wasn’t going anywhere until he finished his cupcake.
Came across this wonderful brass band playing outside the metro (subway) station yesterday in DC.
I plan on going out and about today. There should be plenty of out-of-towner’s in DC this weekend and today is supposed to be fairly warm. The conundrum is which camera to take–the Nikon or the new GX1 or both? I feel I’ve been neglecting the Nikon lately and I just got the GX1; so both it seems.
I saw a perfect opportunity to get a stealthy, up close and personal, portrait on the train this morning. Both my fellow passenger and I were very shocked when the flash went off. Oops!
I’m forever taking photos of people leaving the Metro trains with my iPhone and I’m forever taking them in situations where the lighting is less than ideal. Maybe one day, I’ll learn.
Downloaded some free Lightroom presets and applied them to a few images.
Busy all weekend doing freelance work (so I can afford my new habit). These are from Friday of last week. I was playing with HDR in Camera+ and Snapseed.
The first photo was taken with my iPhone (the Panny battery had died by then and I haven’t purchased a back-up yet), the rest with my Panasonic Lumix LX7.
