Project 365, Day 52 - Galaxy


Blue & Purple, originally uploaded by Here Be Dragons.

More high-speed photography, water with food coloring. I love the colors in this shot, although I'm having trouble getting an entire crown in focus. I seem to have reached a plateau with my current techniques; I'm thinking a bigger/second flash unit would help me get to the next level.

Even though this shot isn't perfect, I still like it a lot. The colors make me think of deep space.

Project 365, Day 53 - Sunprint

Today, unsatisfied with the high-speed shots I took (I tried taking some photos outdoors today, and got too many strange light effects that weren't making me happy), I decided to try something completely different, and take my photo for today without using a camera. :) When C got home from school, I pulled out a packet of photosensitive paper, and the two of us made sunprints. It was fun, and challenging to find things which would actually make an attractive print.

Of the ones I did, these are my two favorites:

Lavender:

Lavender


Fern (with Lavender and Desert Sage):

Fern, Lavender & Desert Sage


Trouble is, I can't decide which one I like best. So, like I did with the photos from the Maker Faire, I'm going to let all of YOU decide. :)

Poll #1194925 Sunprints

Which sunprint should be my official 365 photo for today?

Lavender
9(37.5%)
Fern
15(62.5%)



Thanks in advance for helping me decide. :)


ETA: Looks like Fern is the winner, so that will be my official 365 photo for today. Thanks to everyone who voted. :)
