Shooting this in complete darkness except for the ambient light provided by this floor lamp, I got bolder and bolder with using my camera’s manual features tweaking an exposure setting here and there. I took as many different exposures as I wanted until I got this one with just the right amount of lighting to give the entire room a mysterious effect.
The next photo is a complete opposite of the first image. Playing with the sun’s rays as it was getting low on the horizon, I happened to see this mysterious creature and so many others washed away on the shore. I liked the way the sunlight was reflected on its plastic-like body and on the sand as well. Such a colorful animal but deadly, the Portuguese man of war, also known as blue bottles.
All thanks to Photo 101 for pushing me to my limits and giving me inspiration to create more visually appealing and unique photos. I vowed to only use current and up-to-date photos so as to force me to practice and practice some more. The first photo was shot tonight with my DSLR and the second one with my phone two days ago.
