Week 2: 100 Happy Days

Week One: 100 Happy Days

April 4, 2014

So, I’ve taken on yet another photo-a-day style challenge. I know, I know, I’m a sucker for them, and I usually run out of steam before they end. But I believe in never giving up!

The challenge lasts 100 days and the photos must reflect something that brought happiness into your day. A unique way to truly be in the moment, and to take note of those small daily moments of happiness we tend to overlook.

Sign up by checking out the challenge here: 100happydays.com, then just add the #100happydays hashtag and you’re sharing with the the world.

 

Here are my week one offerings.

I’ve posted about Roland Theys’ work before. He is an amazing photographer with a beautiful eye for light. He was kind enough to send me a link to his new site, and I wanted to pass it on. Please check it out!

Shells…

June 12, 2013

I love photographing nature. And ocean things in particular are a passion of mine. When I tried my hand at sketching courses I took shells as my subject. I will say I didn’t do too poorly. But definitely photographing them is more in my skill line. These were taken with my Pentax 90 point and shoot. I need to take my Canon out next time.

365 – Week 16

June 9, 2013

This week I played with my Pentax waterproof point and shoot. It seemed appropriate to do an ocean theme since I bought it for my first snorkeling adventure in Mexico. Since there was no opportunity to go snorkeling in Vancouver this week, I settled for some shots of sea shells and sea stars. Then I decided to do some black and white work. Working in black and white is a fascinating process. You have no idea how many varied effects you can get from one photo until you start playing with contrast and filters.
