nce-portrait

f/5.6, 1/13, ISO 800

If you haven’t noticed, there are not a lot of self-portraits here on Fel’s Photos. I’m not a huge fan of taking my own picture, it’s just the way things are. But I received word from my college professor that she needed a photo of me after I informed her I had passed my NCE. I could have given her an older photo, but I decided it was time to get in front of my camera to take this portrait. I’m still not a huge fan of having my picture taken, but this one isn’t too bad.

winter-feathers

f/5.6, 1/4000, ISO 800

The snow is everywhere you look here, which often leads to great opportunities for photos. Originally I was going to take a photo of paw prints I found in the snow, but it wasn’t working out the way I wanted to. My mother had found a few bird feathers in the snow and pointed them out to me. I love the way they feathers contract against the white snow.

winter-sunset

f/1.4, 1/15, ISO 400

It isn’t often that I get the opportunity to capture a photo of the sunset. Usually I am in the middle of driving home and by the time I get home the sun has already set. I got lucky today though and was home early enough to capture this photo of a winter sunset.

dog-stare

f/1.4, 1/15, ISO 400

You have probably seen this cutie at one point or another if you have visited before. This is my dog, whom I absolutely adore, but is not a huge fan of having her photo being taken. I was able to capture this shot of her though after many attempts of trying to get her to look at me. I think my dog was starring over at my mother at this point, who was attempting to help me to get this shot of her.

stairs

f/1.4, 1/15, ISO 400

I was having some trouble thinking about what to take for today’s photo. The inspiration hadn’t hit me, so what do I do? I ask my husband. He suggested taking a photo of something a bit more abstract, which led to this picture of my stairs, the banister, and a pole. There really is not a lot more to say about this photo other than it was a bit more different than my usual photos. Okay, not completely true considering I have taken some rather random photos of objects.

jelly-beans

f/1.4, 1/50, ISO 400

I have been meaning to take a photo of this jar of jelly beans since I first received it. At work, we have a Christmas party and this year I received this jar of jelly beans along with some Sour Patch Kids. It (obviously) took me a bit to figure out exactly what kind of composition I wanted for this photo and where exactly I wanted to take it. Better late than never!

snow-heart

f/2.0, 1/3200, ISO 100

We were not supposed to get as much snow as we did today, so we’re kind of stuck at home for the day. I had to come up with something to take a photo of and I had done a Winter Wonderland photo previously, so I needed to get a bit more creative. So, I drew a heart in the snow using food coloring. I had previously seen people who will put food coloring in snow or on ice and decided I was going to try it out. I had no idea how it was going to go and this was my second attempt at creating and taking a photo of the heart in the snow. I think it came out pretty well; though, it was kind of difficult with the food color running, but I was able to get a nice shot of this heart in the snow.

My husband and I subscribe to Loot Crate, which is monthly subscription in which we receive a box full of geeky merchandise. When I’m stumped as to what to take a photo of, he generally comes up with one idea or another. Today’s idea was that he would hold and wear items from some of our Loot Crate boxes. He is wearing Minecraft sunglasses and a Space Invaders tie while holding a Tribble from Star Trek. I have to admit, when I first saw the Tribble, I had no idea what it was, but my husband was very excited about it and therefore told me all about it. So now, I know all about Tribbles and what trouble they can make.
