P52 - Week 8 - Low Light

The theme for this week is "low light." And I have to admit that I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with this. Typically, finding time with my camera after sun down and before sun rise is not the easiest. I did have a few thoughts for things to try, but honestly, I never quite got around to it.

Then, near the end of the week, I had an early morning start for my day job. And sitting there at my computer, I noticed the neat pattern of light that my desk lamp was creating on the bed behind my chair. So I grabbed this little angel that normally sits on top of my router and placed her smack dab in the middle of a pool of soft light. And this is what I captured:

Settings: f/2.5, SS=1/6 sec, ISO=800

I really love how this turned out. This angel has long been one of my favorite sights in the computer room. And I think she really shines here!

I still have a few other low light ideas I want to give a try in the future. Hopefully one of the other themes will fit the ideas.


About This Blog

I'm a proud mom of a very active little boy. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to document the many milestones throughout his life so far. These moments are precious to me. So I grabbed a camera and snapped away. I dabbled a bit in scrapbooking and took some time to learn at least the basics of photography. After all, kids grow so fast and you can't turn back the time.

But as he got old enough for school and team sports, I was so very disappointed in the offerings out there. I'm proud of my All Star in every thing he pours his heart into!

So I picked up a copy of Photoshop and tried my best to create momentos to capture these memories.

I'd love a chance to help you stop time for a moment as well.
