Photo 101 Day 8: Let the Picture Move You

Red Berries

I’m really starting to get the hang of taking photography. The above photograph was taken along the same walk way shown in Photo 101 Day 5: Everything in 3’s.

It took me three take to get this shot and I have to say I’m proud of myself. I love how the color of the leaves and berries sort of pop as well as take the eye from bottom to top and vice versa.

And guess what else I love about this shot? I love that I was able to figure out how to make the background blurry and the foreground focused with my Sony a5000. I haven’t been able to do that since receiving the camera for Christmas. So needless to say I was dancing, cheering and looking like a dern fool the whole rest of the to the front door of my building. I didn’t care.

I hope you guys are enjoying your day!

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
