Project 365 for 2018: Week 1

Posted by Avital Pinnick on January 8, 2018

I’ve very quietly started a Project 365, with the specific goal of mastering my new Sony Alpha 6300 mirrorless camera. When I took it out during Hanukkah, I was really frustrated over the fact that I didn’t know the settings well enough to be able to set it in the dark and that I wasn’t positive I was locking the focus in low light. At least the Sony is much lighter to haul around than the Canon T2i with 18-135mm lens. Photo above is the funky weave of our screen door leading to the back balcony.

Sometimes there are things to shoot. This sunset was past its peak, but I was on a bus and had to wait until I got off the bus to photograph the sky. By the way, this was not post-processed.

Other times, there isn’t a lot to shoot. I find that after Shabbat goes out is a tough time. After doing dishes, tidying up, I’m usually too tired to think of a photo and don’t want to walk into town on the chance that there might be something interesting at the mall, so I usually shoot something inside my house, like my embroidery. Tip if you’re doing a project 365: make a list of easy shots for those times when you don’t feel like taking photos.

    Hi Avital, I’m thrilled you’re doing a 365 to learn the controls of your camera — does that mean at least a picture every day? I think my favorite out of this bunch is the screen…
