    Default COTW - silhouettes (ends 3/06)

    CONGRATS to Lauren (LittleFlores) for winning the long exposure COTW!

    Lauren has chosen our next topic as: silhouettes!

    For those of you who struggle with this as much as I do, here are a couple of tutorial sites to get you ready for the challenge:

    Have fun!

    How exciting! I've just begun experimenting with silhouettes in the past week or so, so maybe I'll actually enter this COTW.

    Oh my GOODNESS! See, this is why I'm here! I'd never tried a silhouette (still haven't) but thought I'd read the tip pages on it and thought, "Gee, I don't know how to set my exposure differently from my focal point on my P&S." I didn't even think I could. But lo and behold, reading the tips and then doing the research to see if I could, I discovered that yes! I can!

    Eureka!

    I know, I'm totally goofy, but I just had to share that I appreciate being challenged to think about different things that I don't know (and there's SO much I don't know!) and learn!

    Thank you!!!

    El, those are just downright perfect!!

    Mine isn't even close to perfect, but I made a stab at something. I don't have any real studio equipment, but DH helped me rig some stuff up to do this shot with DD's toy guitar. Crazy, I know.
