Project 365: Week 22 and Week 23 Recap

13 Apr

It’s always hard to believe when two weeks have gone by since my last recap, but it just happens that way. Life is busy, but I’m still clickin’ away. Here are the shots from Weeks 22 and 23 (almost halfway finished!).

Day 148 (March 28, 2014): In the brush

I went to pick up some dry cleaning and there was this antique sewing machine displayed in one of the front corners of the store. Check out the hand-painted detail!)

    Yeah photos! I really like them all, but here are some of my favorites.

    Day 148: great DOF and composition.
    Day 149 & 150: good use of color. I like in the second picture you have your husbands hands.
    Day 152 & 153: love the antique sewing machine. I like that you converted the first picture into B&W, it helps accentuate the age of the machine. In Day 153 I like the composition – I like that you have the foot / needle as your focal point but left the wheel in the picture.
    Day 154: Textures is a good name for this picture – the texture is what I like about it, and the fact that at first glance it isn’t clear what the objects are. The abstract element makes this picture interesting.
    Day 156: old keys – very cool. I like the textured background and that it is “endless” (don’t know if that is the right word in English, that would be the word for it in German – scary). Did you shoot this with your macro? It looks like your DOF is quite short. I’d recommend maybe using a higher aperture (higher number) then you could have each part of them in focus.
    Day 157: this is my FAVORITE. Great choice to do B&W, great composition and great DOF. Excellent. I would totally hang this up in my house.
    Day 158: good DOF.
    Day 159: also really like B&W for this shot. Good composition and I like the classic feel of this photo.
    Day 161: fantastic – big fan of street photography. Again really great choice to convert this to B&W. Love everything about it.

    Great job my friend! Can’t wait to see the next ones!

      Thanks so much for all the wonderful critiques! Yes, I used a macro filter on #156. I’m not sure what you’d call the background, but “endless” works. 😉 What a compliment on #157! Thank you!! If you want it, let me know! As for #s 159 and 161, I love B&W conversions as well. Sometimes, it just adds so much more to a photo to see it in B&W. As you can tell, I’m also in love with street photography. I hope to really grow in this genre. It’s captivating!
