365 Photo Challenge: Week 1

The first week was a mish mash, which included one picture taken with my iPhone because I didn’t have my DSLR with me. I’m still not completely used to making a conscious effort to look for photo opportunities and some of these photos are lame, and I knew this when I took them. I’m just going to try to get better every week. 

There were several cloudy days in a row with some amazing formations I was dying to shoot, but missed because I didn’t have my camera. These weren’t the best, but they were still pretty cool looking. I like that ominous gray cloud right next to a patch of clear blue sky.

This is my favorite picture of the week. It was a gorgeous day and this was also my very first shot of the day. Day 3 was good.

I have mixed feelings about this shot. I like the focus on the tower and Brandon blurred in the background, but it’s also kind of strange. Motion is something I have to work on for sure.

My least favorite of the week. It was 11:00pm and I hadn’t had time to take a single picture the whole day. Boo.

I was glad to see this at Starbucks when I was there. (This is the iPhone shot. Probably wouldn’t have taken it with the DSLR anyway.)

My new exercise equipment that Brandon was thrilled to claim as his new toy. His face looks as if he’s stunned that they aren’t his. :)Matt’s been telling me forever that I should stop using the flash on the camera so much. So, I’m finally listening to him. (It doesn’t happen often; just ask him.) Some pictures definitely turn out better, but others are rough with or without the flash. 

I’m glad I finally got started and I’m hoping week 2 gets just a tad better.
