Project 365 - Day 31

Another try at portrait photography. This time it's a close up shot of the eyes of my older daughter. She's got wonderful eyes, very expressive. I chose to go with a shallow depth of field to concentrate the attention on her eyes. I'm quite happy with this one, still have to practice portrait photography a lot, but I've got incredible models ! ;-)

As usual, you may have noticed that I haven't been very regular on posting my pictures for this project, don't worry, I'm still working on it, but it's just not always easy to manage the family life, taking pictures, work, photography and sharing my pictures ! By the way, for those interested, I've added new sets of pictures on my urbex photography website.

Project 365 - Day 30

Belgium and its well known weather. I'm quite frustrated not being to go outside because of the continuous rain. Well, I admit I could be a bit more courageous, but this kind of weather is very depressing. I was looking at the window and saw all these little droplets. They were like a thousand of little lens reflecting the outside world upside down. At least, it gave me the opportunity to take this shot...

Project 365 - Day 29

The other day, my daughter was making a cake with my wife. She called me and showed me what she was doing and said: "look how it's nice, why don't you take a picture of it ?" So I decided to take a photograph of it for my project 365.

Project 365 - Day 28

Still giving a try at abstract shots. This one was taken while I was aboard a car (please take note that I was not driving !). The night was falling and I tried several shots to capture the lights of the cars while on the highway. This is the one that turned out to be the best of the serie...

Project 365 - Day 27

Another try at portrait photography with my youngest daughter. We spent a nice moment together, for once, she was very receptive and not running everywhere. I like this shot because she looks very contemplative and lost in her thoughts. I really have to practice more with portrait photography, a style which I'm not very familiar with. Most of my portrait pictures are just uninteresting family portraits...

Project 365 - Day 26

I've been very sick recently and spent a good week in bed, so I didn't really had the opportunity to take shots and/or post pictures, but here's another one. It's another abstract shot, I'm really beginning to like doing abstract shots !

Project 365 - Day 25

I was at a gas station the other day. While filling my car, I was looking at the pump. The sun was reflecting on the metal, and I liked the texture and the colors of the metal. I thought I could try a close-up shot of the metal with the three pumps aligned. Well, here's the result, not too bad, but not too good either in my opinion...

Project 365 - Day 24

I really hadn't much time these last days to post my pictures of my 365 project, but I haven't given it up, don't worry ! So here's the next one: an urban scarecrow, well not really a scarecrow in fact but this is what it made me think of when I looked at it. I was drinking a coffee outside of a pub and looking around. I looked up and saw that urban light that reminded me of some Don Quichottesque's scarecrow.

I also added a new set of pictures on my urbex photography website for those interested !
