7/52-18 Reflections & Roses

Another week of not really thinking about the 7/52. I tried, I really did, but there was so much other excitement going on that I couldn’t really focus. I’m working on a new schedule for my not-working time that will allow for some quality photography time, and hope to implement it this week. My success or failure will be reflected in next week’s (and successive) 7/52s.

One thing that would help: clear weekly themes or projects, with some sort of goal beyond ‘get 7 pictures worth sharing.’ I’ll work on this too.

So. The lens of the week: the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G. I strapped it on last Sunday about this time, and there it sat. Monday evening, I noticed some groovy reflections and colors in the kitchen door, and grabbed a few frames, which set the theme for the week, mostly.

Wednesday, determination struck, and I tried to go out wandering with the camera, but I hesitated one second too long and social anxiety took hold, so I started shooting reflections around the apartment. I think there are some interesting things going on in a couple of these.

Friday, I was walking in from work, and spotted the little Roses in a pot. Out came the camera, click-click-click went the shutter, and the theme mashup was born. Oh well.

Everything was shot with the D7000 and aforementioned Nikkor. EXIF is in the lightbox, and the reflection pics got 40-60 seconds of post work in Lightroom, vs. the 12 seconds of work for the roses. Good times.
