My cat is obsessed with sleeping on my phone.
It took forever to get this done tonight. It had been ages since I had done this technique, which is called focus stacking. I took about 17 pictures of my hard drive (with my camera on a tripod), shifting the focus slightly with each picture so that I could get the entire name in focus with still having a shallow depth of field. After taking the images I had to put them in to Photoshop and blend them together, which on a laptop (even my heavily upgraded one) takes forever. I think it took a half hour to process this final image. And I had to do this three different times, with one time taking an hour to process. So needless to say I have been working on this for more than a couple of hours. I also busted out my flash for the first time in a while tonight, and bounced it off the window behind me with a diffuser.
I seriously love my hard drive, so I thought it deserved a spot in my 365.
Lexington, KY is currently hosting the World Equestrian Games, and today was college day. It was free for college students, so Elliot, Whitney, my friend Dave, and I hopped on a bus downtown Lexington, rode out to the horse park, and walked around all day. It was such a blast! We even got to pet a penguin!
This was taken in the Alltech tent, where they had a model of sustainable farm that they are working on.
There are more pictures to come for sure, but it will probably take a bit because this is the week when everything is due for every class pretty much. Let the stress begin.
I just opened an Etsy shop with my sister! Check it out!
