Dog and Master playing at dusk

9/365: My dad and dog Joya were playing in the backyard before sundown and I got a couple of shots. Due to the low light, the photo is f/5.6, 1/13 s (to get the blur, of course), at ISO 3200 (hence the noise).

7/365: Sun setting behind the Walton Lighthouse as seen from Twin Lakes Beach. I sure do live in a beautiful place!
Pick of the day:
It’s amazing how much the light changes during one sunset.

Super Bowl Sunday

6/365: I had to highlight the American tradition of Super Bowl Sunday for my pic of the day. My mom made hummus from scratch, along with a vegetarian chili. Pair with some chips and salsa, and we have ourselves a little Super Bowl feast! Here is my beautiful mother with her Super Bowl treats:
Vegetarian Chili, plus a pic of all the snacks:

San Jose park

4/365: Ran an errand for my dad in San Jose today and ended up on S 1st St. Photo of the day is of a little park in the middle of the street. Each side of the street is one-way with this park in the center separating the two sides. I hope that makes sense…

It’s always interesting when there are all of these nice places to sit and hangout and there is one lone person:

3/365: Bulletin board/wall between the CVS and Safeway in Felton. I know it’s pretty cliche, but also a classic. 
I almost chose this one as the one for the project…

I also loved the shadows and textures of this one:

365 Project: day 1! [self-portrait]

Posted in 365, Photography, Portraiture by daybf on February 1, 2011

I’ve been wanting to start a 365 project for a few years now, but I was a little afraid to actually start. It’s a big commitment to take and post a photo each day! But, I think it will be a great challenge and I’ll strive for the best photos possible. I also wanted to start at the beginning of a month, so since I missed out on January, February 1st it is! To start I just did a simple self-portrait to further experiment with my new light set-up, and to get the ball rolling.

It’s a very bare-bones portrait of me. No fuss, just a lil mascara, neutral expression. Just me.

And, because this is my blog after all, here are some fun outtakes:
