experimental photography

we had a some beautiful weather yesterday afternoon, and despite everyone’s continuing struggle with snot, we took the kids out to the playground at early head start.  i was relieved that the squirm was excited to be there, instead of freaking out when we pulled up.  we have relapsed a little about wanting to go to school.

the extra contrast-y afternoon sun gave me lots of opportunities to experiment with my digital harinezumi.  the camera gives you the option of shooting in color or black and white.  and you can set the iso at 100 or 800.  i find the 800 setting can give some really beautiful grainy results that look almost like digital watercolor.

i have found that the camera is definitely better in a closer-up situation.  i took it with us on our last trip to the zoo and couldn’t really get any good pics of the animals in their wire enclosures.

i was able to get a good picture of the squirm with mr perfect.

happy birthday to two of our friends!  augie went to a party on saturday afternoon.  he was especially entranced by the front porch, but was also interested in the clown!

    Great shots, both for the artwork and the family album. We need to do more of those…

      that is the great thing about so many digital options these days, it lets you really experiment without feeling like you are wasting money! apparently the new polaroids are digital and you can choose to print or not. i want one of those next 🙂

    Lovely. I’d say your experiment was a super success. 🙂

    I agree with your reply to kaet about the digital cameras… 😉

    I’m enjoying how you think “i must give this a try” and you actually DO it!
