Project 365 Sunday update #3

Ok so another week, wow these are moving fast!

My Walkman is kinda redundant now I have my iPhone.. the only real advantage it has is battery life and seeing my push bike is in dire need of some TLC before I can ride it again it's just been lying about. So here it is day 18, my Sony Walkman (I Photoshopped the screen in)

I got this funky torch for chrimbo, its an LED light with a tripod built in, the head can tilt through 90 degrees so its pretty handy and bright. Day 19.

Many moons ago, ok roughly 9 years ago I used to play a game called Magic the Gathering or MTG for those in the know. Wednesday saw a return for me of playing a booster draught (but this was a draught with a slight tilt, we weren't playing with fresh packs of cards, but instead with all the good cards from over the years.). I enjoyed playing again and we're aiming to play every 2nd wednesday in the month, so roll on Feb. Day 20 is the 2 stu's having a duel (but only Stu in the photo).

I didn't do or go anywhere exciting for Day 21, so I decided I would draw a day 21 and then photograph that.

Day 22 saw me pulling my hair out. I decided to finally install Windows 7 Ultimate. Oh boy.. trying to get my WiFi working was a complete ball ache, it took all of 25 minutes for Win 7 to install, and then several hours of trouble shooting, downloading driver after driver on my laptop to try and get my WiFi working.. trouble was the TCP/IP 6 protocol, soon as I disabled it, bam! it worked. Microsofts best OS to date? MY ARSE! it is pretty responsive though.

Ok so Day 23 is kind of a cheat, this is also for a competition on an online forum Hexus.net where people have to take a photograph for the title "Beginnings" using their Canon 50 1.8 MKII

So Day 24 I had a concept all worked out, I'd shot it and was going to roll with it, but, when Maisy had to do her home work the images I was seeing just had to be captured through the lens. So this is it, the past 7 days.

Yeah, I know I'm a day out, but I was travelling home from a weekend in Exeter last night and didn't get home until 1am and went to bed. So I'm doing my Sunday update tonight instead..

Day 11 my external drives for backing up all the photographs I take, I keep all shots on a Drive and keep them for about a year before I make a final copy on DVD

Day 17 is a homeless guy in Exeter selling The Big Issue. He was up for having his photo taken, but not very co-operative when asked to pose. Typical..

Project 365 Sunday update #1

by Robert Whetton 11. January 2010 00:56
Ok so here are the shots I've taken throughout the week, those who are Exif peaking will see that yesterday's (Sat) and today's (Sun)were taken in the early morning of the following day (I don't count a new day until sunrise..)

So Sunrise it is for this shot of the moon on day 4, it was just striking against the blue of the morning sky.

Day 5, I was in the New Forest when I saw these amazing trees over the stream. So out came the 70-200mm and I got this shot.. I'm sure i was thinking about Avatar that afternoon.

Hooray!! the rest of the country has snow for days, but we have to wait until day 6 to get our covering of the white powder.

While renewing the bird food around the garden, I'm followed by a cheeky Robin who hangs around enough for me to get my 70-200mm with x2 tele converter, and even allows me to get close enough for this tight shot. I was even able to get in pretty close with my 28mm prime, but this shot won the day for me.

Friday day 8 was a fun day.. a Trash the Dress Session. I had heard there was 6 inches of snow in Salisbury, and as I spend a few days a year chasing military helicopters around Salisbury Plains, I knew of a great location for the session (I'll be posting about that this week). This shot was taken on the way home.

Mr Kyps was the venue for this portrait of Bert who has taken over from Romin for booking bands. I was there shooting bands, in particular Viper Lounge who paid me to cover their set. Berts reaction to me asking if I could take his photograph? "I don't like having my photo taken". So thanks Bert for putting up with my request for a Day 9 photograph.

Sunday Day 10, driving home after spending the evening with my Copywriter I spied this Royal Mail aircraft at Bournemouth International Airport. Something you don't see parked their everyday so I thought it was a worthy edition for Day 10.

So thats it. Sunday 1 of 51? for Project 365. I'll post the TTD Session later this week, I have a fair bit of editing and other work to do first.

365 Project - Day 3

by Robert Whetton 4. January 2010 00:46
A very good suggestion by Hannah that she's only going to blog every week.. considering its now day 4 and I did in fact take a shot on day 3 but only just now getting round to posting it now, I may well do the same, post a weeks worth of shots on a Sunday..

So this is the last shot until next Sunday, I will still be uploading them every day, just not updating the blog with them on a daily basis..

So this guy must have been either a fanatical Wind Surfer, or a Nutter (or they one of the same?) because it was baltic out at Swanage where this photo was taken!
