shadow shots with new nikon d-60






i finally broke down and bought a nikon d-60 which i've been drooling over for some time. i love it! tons of things to learn and explore but so far i'm finding it a breeze to use. all this week's shadow shots were taken with the nikon. for more amazing shadow shots from around the world, check out hey harriet's blog.

Your up and at it early - we got a new Nikon too, but the L100 - the 'easy' one! Love your shadow shots... especially the one with the dog on the leash.

ooooh, i love these shots taken with your new toy!! i've put in a request for a nikon for my birthday....but after moving into a brand new house, i feel a little guilty asking for something so pricey. now that i think of it, i asked for the camera BEFORE we moved into the house, so there should be something in the "birthday rules of gift etiquette" that negates my request as being over-the-top, don't you think?! hee hee

Marvelous shadow shots! So happy you got the new camera! I have a new one, too, and it's such fun -- still have a lot to learn though! Love the bottle shot!

Enjoy and have fun!

Interesting and thoughtful shadow shots. I love the jar of beans. Is that one straight from the camera? It's a great effect.

Serena said...

Congratulations on your new camera.....great shots! :)

Fascinating images. Forgive this novice question -- how do you get the photos to show texture? Especially the little jar lid -- it looks like there's a 'grain' to the photo. Cool beans!

thanks for all your wonderful comments, my friends!! just to clarify i did do a bit of photoshop editing on two of these photos. i added a bit of hue saturation on the colored pencils shot. you can see the effects by looking closely at the shadow. i also photoshop edited the clear glass jar with lid. it is a substantial-sized glass jar with river rocks in it, photographed on our dreiveway. i was disappointed in the image when i downloaded it to my mac, so i drug it into photoshop and altered the curves and added a bit of texture. you can see the effects mostly in the shadow. thanks for all your interest!!!

Christine said...

don't know if it's my imagination, but this shadow shots seem even better than your previous ones, so clear and well defined.
