It Started With a Comment


 It Started With a Comment... I posted a candle photo, one of you bloggers wrote a comment and said if you put the AV high and use a tripod, you can make stars out of the lights..... I THINK it was Diane B. Please fess up whomever told me this.



I had no tripod so I set the AV on 1/25 (aperture) and sat it on the counter top.  OOPS! cover your eyes, yes, that is MadSnapper in her night gown, it WAS 6 AM...



I got carried away SNAPPING!   can you believe that???? but I did make Stars on the lights..


Then I saw  a collage of cats on a fellow blogger and asked if I could copy it... She said it was a collage from iPiccy... it was and I did.... only it is not like hers, I got to PLAYIN...........

NOTE! why can I remember all this and NOT who the two people were that gave me the info... Why?


AFTER all this.....guess what I did Next?

I've given up trying to guess what you'll do next, but I do like all your photos. You did a great job with both the stars and the collages.

It was me who told you about iPiccy! Love how your collage turned out with those rays of light. A monopod from Walmart, eh? Hope mine has one!

Linda said...

I'm catching up with your posts as I've been trying to do quiet, non blogging things. However, you have so many great photography ideas and ways to edit your results that I'm enjoying your recent ones. The collage is lovely. I'm only sorry I haven't such editing facilities myself.
