JJ Task #24

I enjoyed learning about my camera and taking photos in different light conditions, so decided to make my layout about that. I concentrated on one of the techniques: forcing a flash in bright daylight. Of course, now that I know how to do that, I've been snapping indoors without flash, outdoors with... etc. All of it has been interesting and lots of fun. Thanks for looking!

 

Journaling reads: I experimented with forcing a flash in bright sunshine. What I discovered was -- sometimes it’s a good idea, and sometimes it’s not. I like how the flash filled in some of the deep shadows in the purple lantana. On the other hand, I preferred to see some shadow on the sun plaque because the shadows help highlight the carving. That’s one of the best things about a digital camera. We can try different things and get instant results!

Nice layout! I love to see what people learned from this challenge! Oh to see some bright sun and flowering plants this time of year (I'm in Iowa-haha) Love the embellishments you chose.

What a wonderful layout - I love the 2 different sets of photos showing your experiments, the background paper AND the elements you used!

Beautiful layout, and a neat technique. Thanks for the mini-lesson in photography. I'm going to have to give this a try. I really like that you scrapped your experiment.

Oh yes we wouldn't be half so brave if we had to pay for processing would we? hurrah for digital! I agree with you about the relative merits of fill flash. Great work with your camera and great page to record it.

Beautiful layout and beautiful photos. I love that sun face and I agree with you about the shadows on the face. Makes it more interesting. I'll have to check out the force flash in sunlight. Since I do a lot of outdoor scenery shots, this would come in handy. Your multi-color background paper is gorgeous and I love the vine creeping up the side of your photo.

I like your idea to use the LO to illustrate what you learned. I haven't really experimented with fill flash either & I agree that it looks great with the flowers but not as good as the contrast for the sun. Neat!

Super! Love how you made such an informative page so beautiful. Beautiful photos - how fortunate to have lantana in bloom......sigh.

Thank you for sharing! I have learned a little more about lighting and flash with this challenge. I like that you showed the varying fill differences! Pretty background. The laurels down the side add a nice touch!
