The sun was shining so bright but extreme cold weather outside. Baby was fast asleep and I was taking a break with a cup of Cappuccino.

Then the door bell rang.

And there was a horse standing at my door step, telling me to come out for a ride with her.

I tell her it’s too cold outside, but the horse just smiled and grabbed me by neck. Whoosh, I was on the back of her.

The horse just kept going like a wind, but I never felt the cold on my cheeks.

We passed by the park with stone bench.

Then, here we were under the white blossoms, I closed my eyes and took in a breath of warmth and sweet aroma.

I opened my eyes, and there I was, sitting at the kitchen table holding a cup of cappuccino.



My dreams under your feet – Journey of becoming a great photographer #4 1/2

As I made myself a homework this week, I am questioning myself about my subject being my baby girl. In our class, we discussed about the digital citizenship and safety, but now it is making me to rethink about sharing my baby photos.

Am I violating my girl’s right for her privacy? Am I putting her in danger by posting her photos, so some random people will misuse the photos?

So I decided to pick example photo for me to try re-create that is a neutral without a face from Flickr.

First, I went back to the Canon website’s PLAY and tried to figure out what exposure settings this photo was taken with. I came with Aperture 2.8, Shutter Speed 1/750 sec and ISO 1600 as my best guess.

Well, great thing about picking example photo from Flickr is that photographer posts their camera settings.

My guess was quite off from the actual settings the photo was taken… But I am going to try taking photos from both settings and I would like to compare them in my next post.
