Coloured Pencils. =)

Hello! Just got back from school and the light was actually pretty good for once! Normally daylight is fading by the time I get home but today it was just RIGHT. Of course, I pleaded with my sister, offered her humbugs or cupcakes or even 50p but she wasn't having any of it! "The light is right!" I kept saying, but non-photographers never understand, do they?! Found a bottle of coloured wooden pencils, drew myself a picture and decided to be 'creative'! Oops, there goes my exclamation marks again! So, this is how my little shoot turned out. Mostly @ 2.8, ISO 100/200 and varying shutter speeds. Have been shooting a lot in Av mode lately, I think I need to get back into the swing of manual. I added grain to the black and whites, can't resist a grainy B/W! =) So that's my little story! I don't know about in America or other countries but here most schools, including mine, end at 4-00 pm so there's not much time for photography afterwards. We start at 8-00...that's a whole 8 hours in school! What time do you/your kids start and finish school? Gotta go do homework for Chemistry now, yuck! See yooou! =)

thanks for the compliment, Lulu! I love brenda, she is an inspiration, she helps you a lot with Photography. I just started with photography and she's I think my influence aside from Stacy of Blue candyland, check her blog too, just looking at their blog helps you.

You take good still life pictures. I should do that often. I love your profile picture too!!!
