Day 11:

OK, so this one's actually a frak-up; my notes from back then indicate I accidentally set off the shutter. I kept a log of lens lengths, shutter speeds, and f-stops for this series. The next line indicates the shot I'd set up, but for some reason I never took it, so I'm using this one so I don't have to retitle all these posts. That seems to be my hair falling into the shot, so it still counts, right?

A year ago on TTaT: Windy tulips


  1. I really like the portraits! :o) Cool idea. I want to get into halfway serious photography. I need to buy another camera. Any suggestions? (I don't want to spend a huge amount of money, but I want something decent for semi-serious photography.)

  2. thanks, E. I wasn't sure what people thought of them.

    as for cameras, I don't even own a digital yet as I haven't been able to decide what I want/what I can justify spending.

    There are a lot of good compact DSLRs out there which are pretty reasonable and let you change lenses. Also some pretty adjustable point&shoots at the higher end of those models...
