A year of learning...

So... One year ago i decided that i liked photography. One year ago i decided to start my blog. One year ago i decided that i was going to learn and practice, and learn and practice, and learn and practice some more. And now here i am going I am going to learn more, and practice more, and learn and practice some more...  And i am going to improve and reach my goals.

The slideshow are all the pictures that i remember going.. "thats the best picture i'v ever taken!"  There are 51 pictures. There is no music, cause i wasn't sure what music to use so i decided not to use any :)  They are in the order i took them in.

These are just some pins from of pinterest that i like

Jello oranges

Jello oranges?  Yup.  What is that? orange peels and jello.... Cut the orange in half take the orange out and put jello in it. Then let the jello stiffen (or whatever you call it) and then cut it in pieces and take a picture ;)

Ya.. very messy. (especially if you give it to a 12 year old boy..) But it was fun and i like the pictures that i got :)

The front walkway.

So i'v always thought that our front walkway was pretty cool. And i thought i'd be cool to take some pictures of it. :) It was very dark so i had it on a 10 sec. shutter speed and on my tripod. It was really fun doing different stuff with it :)  So anyways, here is what i got!

 This picture is just a normal picture. This is what i was originally going out to take :)
 This picture i zoomed in and out and in and out very slowly to get this
 This one i took off the tripod and jiggled the camera up and down.
This one at first for like 5 seconds i had it on the tripod so that the lights and stuff would be burnt in the picture, then i took it off and jiggled it. (if you cant tell all the white lines are the lights on the ground but by jiggling it it makes them scribbles on the picture.

So ya... that it!

So lately iv been seeing lots of baby ducks. And so i thought id take my camera to the park and get some pictures!

 This mom duck was trying to cross the street and none of the cars were stopping.  My mom thought they were all going to die ;( And then a red truck stopped and parked his car in the middle of the street and was taking all the baby ducks across and the mom was NOT happy at all. lol. But they got across safely :)

Then we (me and emilie) went to the park and i found this mom and her ducks all swimming and the baby ducks were SO cute!

The moon.

So i heard earlier this week that yesterday (Saturday) was the best day of the year to take pictures of the moon. So... i watched a photography session on how to take pictures of the moon and went out saturday and gave it a try. Here is what i got.

So i did edit this a considerably fair amount. I cropped it about half the size it normally was (so that the moon would appear bigger). And i made it a bit more white since i had the wrong white balance on. (cause how would you set it on for the moon?!)

But im happy cause my previous try(s) Made it look like a giant white circle and you have no idea what it is. For all you can tell it could be a flashlight being shined at the camera... :)
