Tenth week in pictures.
We had breakfast for dinner in an American diner in Paris. It was pretty yummy and the staff is nice.
Went to the movies at Forum Les Halles. I didn’t like the movie.
Here we go, the previous week in photos. I’ll try to be good and post this past week next Monday, as god intended.
Trying to catch up. Still the week before last.
I stress about focus a lot. Crisp images are my goal, one day, when I can afford gear to make them.
I usually don’t use post production sharpen tools. I find that they cheapen the photo and only fool amateurs.
The problem with low-end equipment (aka, affordable DSLR and lenses) is that it’s not very sharp. You can try and use only that one aperture point where your favorite lens takes the crispest photos or, like me, you swallow your pride and keep on taking the best photo you can take.
To me, swallowing the pride and posting anything that isn’t perfect is very hard. But if I didn’t I would have no public photos and would have stop photographing a long time ago.
Making photos encourages you to learn and thrive and take better photos each time. It’s the ONLY WAY to learn. You never stop learning.
When I look back I’m very glad I didn’t stop. I’m glad everyday for not giving up the previous day. Everyday.
I’m just a gal trying to capture light with a machine. I’m not perfect and my machine is not perfect either but that’s not stopping me. And it should not stop you either.
I made it pass the first month without failing a day of Project 365. That is pretty cool, in my book!
This week in Paris the rainy days carried on their grey, gloomy work of depressing us all but wine, baguettes and friends are always a good antidote.
More “Sad Girls in Windows” photos for my set.
Third week of Project 365, year five.
Stuck at home because of the rain. I like rain but it’s not very convenient to take photos. It’s a bit depressing when it comes to go out with a camera and an umbrella. But I managed to (almost) catch up on a project I want to share with you later and still went out to run some errants on Champs-Élysées. If you ever need to go to Champs-Élysées, when raining it’s the best time. Much less crowded than on a sunny day!
Week 2 of the Project 365, year 5.
The thing is, it’s hard to make different pictures everyday. This is what’s good about the exercise. It forces you to try and think of something to photograph, or to see the world though a different perspective (literally). You are still going to make lots of boring pictures (at least I am) but the practice turns into a thought agility that is very useful.
I restarted Project 365 again on April 1st.
This is my first week in pictures.
For the past two years I tried to go to the Chinese New Year Parade in Paris and never made it. This year I did. It was so much fun! Lot’s of color, texture, people and a general feeling of energy.
It was very, very cold but it was worth it.
Rue des Barres is a little cobblestone street very near Île Saint-Louis. It’s charming and it has a few nice shops. The church you see up the street is the St-Gervais-et-St-Protais Church that, according to Wikipedia, has a very good french baroque style organ. I must check it out one of these days.
