More progress…. its getting there, slowly.I still think the main tree looks more like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree than the tree in the original photo. And I added some random trees to the background that aren’t really in the original photo as well, bit the pine trees are rather difficult to recreate, so I placed in some oak-y looking ones instead.
I can’t even tell you how many hours I’ve been working on this. I’ve lost count, but its getting up there in the high single digits at this point.
The picture I used for reference is Gele by =jjuuhhaa on deviantArt
he’s also on Flickr. Stop by and say hello!
I’ve decided to give Twitter a try. I keep hearing about it, and its sounds cute! So I figure, why not. I added an rss feed of my tweets over on the right. Just in case anyone cares to check it out. lol
Oh, and here’s my picture for the day. Taken during a trip to the Stony Brook Gristmill with my Nikon FM, and a Nikkor 50mm f1.8. This one is my favorite from the trip.
Hopefully sometime soon I’m going to try and head out to the Arboretum for some photos. Just as soon as The Boy and I are off again…
Every spring my neighborhood is filled with these fluff pink trees. Giant pink cotton balls to welcome you home every day.
Everyone thinks I’m crazy for shooting film lately. But I kinda like getting back to the basics. Besides, its going to be a while before I can afford a DSLR (I’m thinking NIkon D60or D80), so I’m going to have to get my fill of manual goodness through my Dad’s old Nikon FM. Thirty years and counting, and its still going strong. They just don’t make things like they used to, do they? 😉
