I was supposed to do something else for my 7 week into Project 1/52, but my husband kept telling me this morning how much he would love to visit Rio during the carnival. Hence this passionate look upon Mardi Gras!
Nikon D7000, Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D
Focal length 50mm, ISO-100, 1/80 sec. @ f/8
One speedlight with a snoot and amber filter at 1/32 power on one side and another one (hand held) at a low power setting with a pinkish red filter on the other side, aimed at the background. Processed in Lightroom 3.
This is part of a personal project I have recently undertaken but which has become a fantastic group project.
One single theme photographed differently every week, for 52 weeks.
Click here to visit the Project 1/52 Facebook group. There are currently 44 members, each with a different theme and their photo albums are visible to the public. I tell you, there are little gems in there!
Sorry, but it’s not possible to join anymore… maybe next year!
My own theme is called “All Fired Up” and consists in photographing flames in any form, ranging from matches, to fire camps and anything in between!
