Self Discipline - Day 136 #CY365

Self Discipline - NOT! My grandson Robert brings out the seven year old in both of us. There's no self discipline to be found when he visits Grandpa. iPhone 5s.

Imperfect - Day 95 #CY365

Today was self portrait day and the prompt was - "Imperfect". Many photographers are uncomfortable being on the other side of the camera and I'm no exception, although the "selfie" trend is helping me get a little more comfortable. We were challenged to take a photo that captured you as you were, no special prep. I'm really good at imperfect and this is the result. Taken in the foyer mirror with the camera positioned down and to the left just outside of the reflected frame. Olympus OM-D E-M1, 1/50 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800, existing room light.

Step Outside - Day 60 #CY365

Today challenge was "Step Outside" and the first day of month is always a self portrait. So here's my selfie taken in the front yard with my neighbor's bare pecan trees in the background. I captured the late afternoon sun which appeared briefly on an otherwise cloudy and gray day. Used the camera's popup flash to add just a little fill light with the flash compensation set at -2 stops. The camera's self timer was used, manual focus using the distance gauge on the lens, and of course, the camera was tripod mounted. Canon 7D, 1/250 sec @ f/8, ISO 200, 35mm prime lens.

In The Dark - Day 32 #CY365

Today was a self portrait challenge. Like most photographers I'm much more comfortable behind the camera rather than in front of it. With the daily inspiration as "In The Dark", I opted for a selfie of my hand holding a glass as it fills with water. The camera's self timer was set on 10 seconds. Canon 7D,1/40 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 1600 in manual exposure and focus mode.

These chrome spheres reflect the entire store like a series of fisheye lenes. The patterns caught my eye and the picture caught me as well. Canon G1X, 1/13 sec @ f/7.1, ISO 400.

Self Portrait

- Thought I'd try a self portrait for today's photo. It was a nice evening to be riding around in the convertible so I took my photo at a stoplight. Canon G1X, 1/500 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 200.
