I have a quandary…how to I continue to get good pictures (lighting, interesting background, variety) in the winter? ….
I’ve tried numerous settings close to my work locations, cause ya know the paying job comes first 🙂
One afternoon on my lunch break, I stopped at a lovely area next to a business park (it has a little stream and two pretty bridges) to take some pictures, and the landscaping company sat on their mowers and watched me the whole time I was there. Granted they were also there doing their job so I can’t fault them. It just felt awkward….just a little
Yesterday I thought to go to a local river trail that I frequent in the summer, it’s so beautiful. There were actually a lot of ducks on the river and even though foliage is somewhat dried up, it’s still very pretty this time of year. The only drawback is the temperature…17 degrees. That’s kind of a deterrent for me and for a lot of other people too. The trailhead was empty…and I’m out there propping up my phone/camera tripod on a big rock next to the river LOL and it is brutal cold…it could be worse. This time last year it was below zero…so yesterday was balmy compared to last year. But I have to get a picture of these awesome jeans! My whole outfit looks so cute together! It’s a studded tough girl look, I love it.
As I was finishing taking pictures, I saw someone walking up the trail toward me…a guy with a hood over his head….I have a very active imagination. Those that know me will attest to this! I hurried out of there cause I got kind of a sketchy feeling and my imagination is running wild, thinking I would be a murder victim by the river and it was lucky I left in time…my mind goes on like this sometimes…
In October, I watched the second season of “Stranger Things” and freaked myself out. One time home alone watching episodes, I happened to see someone post a picture (on Facebook) of a werewolf creeping up someone’s stairs! Obviously this is a gif and it’s not real, but I soon turned on all the lights in the house and really was very wary going down my stairs! Me and my imagination could start a war…seriously…
So what are the funniest/weirdest things you’ve ever done to get a good picture??? Check mine out below 🙂
