Yeah, I've been a bit slack with writing something to go with these photos.
I guess that's one of the disadvantages with taking quick snapshots - they're meant to be quick and typing takes a while.
Still trying to get back to a seven day week. Hopefully there will be more on the weekends to make up for the grind during week days

Okay, dramatic FAIL for the week before last!
What happened? What's my excuse?
Well, I got a bit lazy. So what happened to this week just ending then? I ended up in Brisbane. I did take a lot of shots, which will likely end up on my site rather than here.
Shall we try again? This upcoming week's theme shall be... Fonts.

And this was scraping the bottom of the barrel.
But I wanted to get seven photos in at least.
Quite a disappointing week. I hope I do better this time around, although it looks to be a busy one.
So... Next week's theme? *cue dramatic IRON CHEF music, smoke and camera zoom!* Space.
Hard week this one. Got a few nice ones, but mostly duds. Like this one.
It's a wind chime at my parents' place. Didn't really think it through too well.
Reminds me of something I read on someone's blog: "There are no bad photographers, just lazy ones." Don't know whether I agree with it in general, but laziness certainly killed off this shot.

I wanted him to stand out subtly by desatching everything else slightly but without the tell-tale selective colouring.
So ends this week. It's been a busy one as I've been processing photos from Smash (see my set on flickr - http://www.flickr.com/photos/mukimu/sets/72157624554510633/) and I also went out to the Glebe tram shed with a set of brollies and a cute model. The theme has been a good learning experience, especially in colour correction. They're not top-notch photos, but none of the Seven in Sydney collection are meant to be.
I was sort of afraid I wouldn't have much to use for this week's theme, but it seems it all worked out nicely.
So, next week? Shooting through stuff.
There's that pale green overcast that I haven't been able to get rid of, but what you can't see is that the original was completed washed out in green. Those light bulbs are actually all green.
The sign is also green, which is a bit of a tricky task for colour correction.
This isn't perfect, but I'm pretty happy with where it ended up given the original.

I did consider that the mobility theme might be a bit hard also. So I'm going to try something easier this week: Desaturation.
It's more of a post-processing thing, but I think I need practice in that area too.

Jess' mat, covered in dog fur. It needs a bit of a vacuum!
So end this week. I loaned out my camera, so I didn't have Sunday to shoot. In fact, I almost completely forgot I was meant to be shooting this week.
It wasn't until Thursday or Friday afternoon that I remembered while looking at something and thought it would be a good thing to shoot for the theme.
So now I need to think of a new theme... Mobility.

Providing the lighting for all of these shots is my old 430EX flash.
They don't make these anymore, but they're a hardy little thing.
So that ends this week! On a Saturday no less!
Good fun experimenting with paper to get that seamless effect.
And so next week's theme is... Texture.
