Day 365 / 365
I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do a more exciting Day 365 picture. I had so much to do today that I just ended up setting up my light stand, speedlight, and umbrella and just took this shot at home.
This was a challenging, but rewarding project. If I were to become a professional photographer, I will fondly look back to this project…the project that started it all!
I know my photography improved so much this past year. I’m glad I ended this project with a shot taken with studio lighting. Last year, the idea of using studio lighting equipment, even though it’s the bare minimum of just one light setup, never crossed my head. Now I love it! want to learn so much about studio lighting that maybe I can become a “strobist” sometime (if I have the money).
Thank you everyone for following my blog and giving me such positive feedback this past year. It really strives to make me a better photographer.
Day 364 / 365
Rooftop Photo Shoot
To my surprise, my husband wanted me to do a photo shoot of him, and I was glad he asked because I wanted someone to practice my lighting setup on.
Right off the bat, I realized that I needed at least two light setups to cover the whole car. With the only one light stand, I just mostly did up-close and cropped shots.
This was done at the roof parking garage at my work. It was just him and I…a perfect place to shoot!

Day 362 / 365
Ntense Gear Photo Shoot
Here is a sneak peak from my lifestyle photo shoot with Ntense Gear.
Day 360 / 365
Pepper With 70-200mm Lens (Black and White)
The one thing I really love about the 70-200mm lens is that it’s good for low lighting, at the same time, I get to zoom into subjects from a far distance, like Pepper for example.
Day 359 / 365
70-200mm f/2.8 Lens on D7000 (Black and White)
This was the lens I was using the past few days. It’s a telephoto lens that can zoom from long distances. It’s also good for low-lighting with its aperture as high as 2.8. I borrowed this to use for an action shot photo shoot this weekend.
This lens is so heavy that I have to use a tripod. Luckily it has its own stand. If I were to put the camera on the tripod on its body, it would tip over.
After carrying this camera, taking this picture with my smaller D3000 and 50mm f/1.8 lens felt much nicer in my hands, but weird at the same time because it’s a smaller camera.
Day 358 / 365
It looks like these trees are smoking, but it was actually very windy. The trees were moving in the wind.
Day 357 / 365
Moon and Clouds with 70-200mm (Black and White)
Since I had a long lens, I was able to take this shot from the ground using a tripod.
