Firstly, let me say how much I am enjoying Through The Lens Thursday and how much I am learning. So, thanks to Greta at GFunkified and Alison at Writing Wishing who dreamt the whole thing up with a prompt for every week.
When I first switched my camera to manual a few months I was almost positive that I would soon be back to auto as I had less than no idea what all the numbers meant and which to use for any given photo situation. I was convinced I would be missing great shots left, right and centre because one or all of my numbers would be wrong and my photo would be dark, out of focus or both!
Well, here I am and I have not gone back to auto and even better, I can’t believe I didn’t make the effort years ago to use manual. Yes, it is confusing (still), and I thank the photography fairies everyday that I can take a ton of photos of the same thing and delete the crap ones. Good old digital!
This week’s prompt for Through The Lens Thursday was ‘Empty’ and as I was making my son’s birthday cake I thought empty egg shells might work just fine. So I gathered up the shells and took them outside for better light and took a few snaps in various arrangements. I liked this one best so I cropped it and here it is. Empty.
Here are the numbers – ISO 200, f/4.0, 1/200s.
I finished the chocolate cake and I have to make it into a Batman birthday cake by tonight!
What would you have used for ‘Empty’? Next week is Street, so I had better get thinking about that one.
