Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

Shadows in B/W

6/24/10 - Day 188
With a full day in the office and then a 24 hour trip to SF, I knew there would be no time to shoot today.  Before leaving for the train to downtown, I noticed the long shadows and silhouettes created on the deck by the rising sun.  Fired off a few shots, which in color were pretty mundane.  I experimented with some Lightroom settings and opted for high contrast B/W which make the shots much more dramatic.

While a day late, I also am submitting to the Daily Shoot for yesterday's shadow assignment.  See my Flickr photostream for the runner-up shot.
