February Challenge: Day 6 – Yellow Tail

Yellow Tail

WEEK 2 = YELLOW

Wine bottles at the grocery store. Yellow Tail is supposedly an Australian wine, but I’m curious if any Australians have even heard of it (I’m not a big fan of wine, by the way). These ones really stood out because of their bright yellow labels. In this shot, I was testing out my brand new 50mm f/1.4 set wide open. This lens has some crazy shallow DOF! Here are a few other shots from the grocery run:

February Challenge: Day 3 – Shot Glass Mirror

WEEK 1 = CLEAR

So week 1 is over, and it was way too short. I was kind of having fun shooting clear stuff. At the end of each week, I’ll post the final photo along with the thumbnails from the previous days. And I’ll also remind you all to participate in the February Challenge if you aren’t already doing so.

This was a CLEAR shot glass partially full of CLEAR liquid posed on top of a mirror and lit with an off-camera slave flash. Funny thing about this photo — it was the first shot out of about 50. I guess I’m just that good. I could’ve saved myself about half an hour of messing around with flash angles and diffusers. Oh well, it’s good practice.

OK, so I kind of cheated on this one too. I actually took the photo on day 4 rather than day 3. Shame on me. But I came up with the idea on the 3rd… does that count for anything?
