Project 365 – Days 31 through 33: Experimental shots

January 31 2013

(Jan. 31, 2013) I checked out a Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L lens from the Cosumnes River College newspaper so I could shoot a softball game. I put a 2x lens extender (which I also borrowed from the newspaper) so I could take some test shots. The helicopter was just a speck in the viewfinder, and I cropped like crazy, but this is what came out. I’m surprised at the stop-motion and detail to be able to read “Police.” I want this lens! Anyone feeling generous?

(Feb. 1, 2013) My Photoshop teacher very briefly showed the class how to get this “color burst” effect to black and white photos. He just breezed through it as a demonstration to show us the wonders of Photoshop, but it was simple enough and I wanted to try it out. So here’s a shot of my awesome Spearmint Chapstick!

(Feb. 2, 2013) I shot Cosumnes River College’s softball team playing their first home game: A doubleheader against Lassen Community College. I had autofocus on (I’m sorry!), and some freaky things can happen when not manual focusing. This picture is one such freaky thing. I thought it looked cool, though, so I saved the picture.
