Ok I am complaining. I just can’t get inspired to go outside at 16 °. Call me crazy but I can wait. I have a timelapse project that I want to try to it involves more time outside than I want to do with the temperatures so low. Specifically I found a method called hyperlapse which can be done without a slider which can run upwards of $1000. During the day this process would require the use of an ND filter which by the time I adjust it I lose the focus. So I matched 2 points on my lens for infinity and marked them with dots of nail polish. Than I killed a little more time shooting some from in macro. It wasn’t as sharp as I wanted but I’m still learning.
I just delivered 2 photos to be entered in the City of Portland art show. It is open to employees and their family. This is my fourth year and since I won money the first year I quickly gained professional status. Since I just this year began to actively seek work as a photographer the professional title is a bit of a stretch. I found out today that they actually provide artists space on the National Arts Program website so I uploaded a few shots. This is one of my entries.
It’s another day of snow in Portland, Maine. It hasn’t been as bad as other areas but enough is too much. While waiting to head south for baby sitting duties I decided to go out and share some of the beauty instead of wallowing in other thoughts I could have. I went into the 365 list for this selection by James Taylor…Frozen Man.
