and get a photo for the challenge.
Oh wait. That's not how the diddy goes.
But if you know how it goes, I bet you're singing it in your
head now. Go ahead. Sing it out loud :)
The CameraShy Take52 Photography Challenge last week was Trio.
I thought it would be easy to find something to photograph
but I looked all week and saw...nothing.
I knew if I waited long enough inspiration would eventually strike.
Finally, while standing in line at the grocery store, I saw a
package of Tic Tac® fruity mints and knew I had found my 'Trio'.
They're bright and colorful and fun looking.
Actually photographing them...not so easy.
I have white tile countertops that I thought would be way
whiter than what they actually photographed.
They came out kind of gray looking. Yuck!
After posting my photo, I got a couple of good tips from another
challenger on how to fix that post-processing. I think I need
to use a secondary source of light, too. Maybe a light box.
I'm pleased with the angle, DOF (depth of field) and reflections.
I would have liked a little more sharpness to the image. That
could be balancing the camera on the edge of the counter.
I probably should have set up my tripod.
But that's what the challenge is all about.
