I'm Ingunn. This blog is about learning to make photos instead of just taking them. This is where I collect and express ideas and thoughts, and sometimes I might get sidetracked, too! There is so much to be learned. I have an urge for making life better, simpler and tastier. My picture galleries are in the sections travel and portfolio. I write in English, but I am Norwegian, and comments are most welcome in both languages.

EARTH WONDERS by anaeugenio

Project | Pond study, November

What happened to November? It never was enough time to make a proper photo shoot for my pond study. I finally managed to squeeze in half an hour of shooting in the first week of December between looking after a sick daughter, marking papers and my general business, but I never got around to blog about it then. My pond study suffered from this, of course, but I have to make use of what I've got to prevent the project from being a failure altogether, so here is my November production t last. My December photo shoot is almost finished, more about that later.

It was a beautiful day, I remember, the first snow had finally arrived (a lot later than last year). It seems to be sunny at all times at my pond. Of course it isn't, but when I have time and desire to go up there, the sun is more often present than not.

The main image of November is really nothing very special, but at least I like how the sun bursts out from behind the trunk, and I think I captured the mood of the day. I used the 28mm, aperture f/5.6, shutter speed 1/400 and ISO 100. I didn't manage to make more than three of four acceptable images this time.


Fall has entered the stage

After weeks and weeks of pouring rain we are now blessed with nice weather again, with soft, low sun and pleasing temperatures. The fall colors have been absent so far this season, but now they're entering the scene, finally. The past few weeks have been busy for me, so my camera has been collecting more dust than images. However, by the end of the week I'm joining a class in creative photography and post-production, and I can't wait to begin! I have high expectations and long for a much needed input and refreshed inspiration. 

Another treat is that my dad has been visiting, and he's by far the one in my family that I share my passion for photography with. We've had a couple of walks and tested some new gear, and we got a few nice ambient shots. I'm challenging myself to go wider, so I only brought a 28mm prime lens this time. It is promising, but tricky to get good results. I like that. All in all, a very good weekend is about to end.
