Night light

I now have Scorpions Big City Nights song stuck in my head. Even though WNC doesn’t have many big cities, and the theme was “night light” not, “bright lights.”

When I saw this theme I thought of a kids night light, Gods night lights with the stars and the moon, and lights at night from man-made objects. Even though I actively shot for this theme (at night) I just didn’t have enough time to go to the meeting this month. I am however making some slow progress on our businesses and personal paperwork and taxes. Hubby, I hope jokingly, threatened to take my cameras away until I got it done and highly suggested I do what I say I am going to do and actually keep up with the paperwork all year long instead of having a years worth in the first quarter.

Contrast & Color

Thankfully, I had already uploaded most of the pictures to my blog for this post before my less than 2 month old, new Dell computer crashed – especially since their customer service is so horrible. I will be updating my blog soon on that.

CCoH theme for the October critique forum is contrast. Here are the three I submitted plus a few more. I shot the chess pieces on purpose for this theme.

Contrast: winner / loser, light / dark, black / white, King / Queen

Shape or form plus #WWPW2018

As covered up as I am, I did what I said I wasn’t going to do, and took the time to go shoot for CCoH’s “Gimme your best shot” theme this month, which was shape or form. I went back thru the newsletters to see if they elaborated on that a bit more, but didn’t see anything, so I just went with I thought qualified. Here are the three I sent.

Jennifer King

I listened to a presentation last night from Jennifer King and I was just as impressed the second time. I would love to take some of her photo workshops! She goes to the neatest places and scouts them all out ahead of time.

Both of her presentations were different but so good! She just seems so approachable and down to earth, plus she’s an animal lover with a cat, travels, and shares her knowledge.

The business portion of the meeting took quite awhile again and she had a three-hour drive home so I didn’t keep her to ask my two questions.

One about the GPS unit she uses and two, on the DOF calculator how that would work with a bridge camera for the wide angle close ups over a DSLR like my fz300 or fz1000.

If I’m still a member of one of the local camera clubs, I hope we get her back again.
