I’ve been an achy, coughing, stuffed up mess for the past few days. I was really hoping to get out to get some pictures but I needed to rest more. So I tried to find something interesting to photograph at home. I didn’t even have the energy to try to style and pose the souricettes. So I tried to get interesting photos of the roses Mr Mouse gave me for Valentine’s day. They’re starting to wilt a bit but still look pretty good. I also took detail shots of some items in the living room. It would all have been so much easier and fun with a macro lens. Souricette 2 made a mess with crayons and I tried to get close to them but I couldn’t get close enough, you know? I’m also finding the lack of tripod a challenge. It makes indoor photography with no flash that much harder. Well, I tried my best at least!
Here are the roses. I set them next to a window to get as much natural light as possible.
And then, here are a few of the detail shots. I kept my aperture wide open and I just realized while editing the photos that I should have closed it up a little. I had to put some of the shots aside because the depth of field was just too shallow…
