Harley my latest subject… April 30, 2010

A friend of mine just purchased a new motorcycle last week. He kindly asked me to take pictures of it for him and well of course I agreed. Some of the photos I really like and others not so much. I also learned a lesson, ALWAYS check your ISO first before you start shooting. I had last set my ISO high and never checked it before taking these pictures. Frustrating! Most of the pictures are SOOC minus slight level adjustments. A few of the photos I ran actions on and was very pleased with the end result. Picture overload!

It’s been a while since I have updated this, so here are a few from Easter as well as some other random shots. I also got a 50mm lens today, during a craigslist sale! So excited!!

OK anyway onto the pictures. Some of my SOOC’s aren’t going to have settings because I had to delete some files to make some room on my SD card, also some do not even have SOOC shots.

SOOC- Lost settings, 3-18-10

I took my daughter Paige out today to find some locations to shoot. We had a blast, but unfortunately I am not happy with most of the pictures I was able to get. Most of the pictures are blown out by the sunlight. I notice one is under exposed and the other over exposed. All in all it was fun and good practice for me.

I took a little detour trip to Seaside Heights, New Jersey, on the way to my Grandparents house one town over. I went with the kind of pictures I wanted in mind. Unfortunately mother nature had other ideas, due to the cold, fog and wind I did not get all that I wanted, but here is what I was able to get.

I am so happy to look outside my house and see grass! Spring is on it’s way and I can’t wait to get outside and take some pictures! In the meantime…

Took some pictures of my daughter today. She was drinking hot chocolate, so don’t mind the dirty face.
