365.234 - Something creepy is in the shower
1/25 sec, f/1.8, 50mm, ISO200

The shot above was one that I had envisioned for quite some time, but wasn’t able to accomplish until I got myself a tripod – one of the supplies mentioned in the “essential gear” link below. On a side note, I need to do a better job of keeping track of what photos I’ve posted here, because for the life of me I can’t remember if I’ve posted that before. If it’s a repeat, I apologize.

  • You may or may not have known that flickr partnered with Getty a while ago, allowing Getty to tap certain images to be added into their collection, but now you can actually request Getty to look at your photos via a flickr group. Check out the details here.
  • I’ve talked before about using the histogram to help edit your photos, but it’s also useful while taking photos, as this article points out.

  • Thanks a lot for linking to my histogram post!

    btw, I loved your recent post on DPS about using GIMP scripts. The GIMP is such a great image editing program that still doesn't get much attention, unfortunately.. But, I think that'll change once it supports 16-bit RGB images :)
