Late Afternoon Summer Sunshine

Posted in Huntington Beach, Photography by Bridget Casas on June 23, 2009

Now that it is officially summer, it is time to catch some images with sunshine as the main focus. The sun here is reflecting on an aluminum chair and it has created an unusual image. I got up from my computer chair this afternoon and looked over to see this unusual reflection. I went to grab my camera so I could take the photo before the sun moved too much. Willie was here and grabbed the tripod for me. I did need it to complete the shot.

What do you think of this image? Willie is not too keen on it! I try to look for unusual things to photograph. I think this one qualifies. I get unusual images like this when it is spontaneous and just happens. We do not have summer weather here yet (which is fine with me). It is still more like Spring – in the mid 70’s. Kyla and Donnan were shaking in their boots last night because of some fireworks. Kyla started it and she has transferred her fear to Donnan. What are we going to do on the 4th of July? Tomorrow I will give you the link to the wedding photos. I downloaded them on Zenfolio but I want the family to approve them first. Is that ok?

Crystal Candy

Posted in Personal, Photography by Bridget Casas on February 24, 2009

I decided to shoot a photo with some beautiful pieces of crystal shaped like candy. My mother gave these to me years ago along with a beautiful Waterford bowl. There are other colors of candies such as red, purple, orange and yellow, but these are my favorites. Larry has given me a few also. I did a close-up and you can even see some air bubbles in them.  I used my +1 close-up filter,  1/50 at f25  so it would all be in focus. I hope it works for you. I am not crazy about the white at the top.

Beautiful pieces of crystal…

I shot this on a white mat board outside. It was not as sunny as I would have liked. It is rather overcast and cool right now. My photography class is tonight. I wonder what we will learn? We have a group project we are working on and we will meet tonight. I have taken a few photos for the project and I am sure the others have also. I have some photos to take for my Saturday class too.  Anyway, I guess that is enough for now!
