JJ Task #24


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 itís a good idea, and sometimes itís 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. Thatís 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.
    Thanks for the forced flash idea. I like the vines on this layout.
    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.
    Beautiful results. I love shadows also, they give the illusion of great texture and add great interest.
    I enjoyed reading your interesting journaling and seeing the great photos to explain. Loved this layout.
    Wow, this is beautiful, Diane -- a tutorial and gorgeous layout all in one! I love the beautiful background you chose and your photos are really lovely. I also really like the vines flowing down the page and the pretty butterfly. Wonderful layout! :)
    Great page. I like the way you compared your results with the flash.
