Day 180

After two frustrating daytime photo shoots that produced nothing good enough to share, I had to shoot indoors after dark. I don't like doing this, because I don't have any lights apart from a built-in flash, and that never, ever produces good results. So I have to rely on the ceiling lights and table lamps.

I had an idea for a dark and moody black and white shot of hands making a heart shape, so I went for it. The finished result isn't quite what I had in mind, but it's pretty close. I shall definitely try this one again some time in daylight.


  1. Hello Helen

    greetings from Holland, Joop

  2. Hello Joop! Nice to 'meet' you and thanks for your comments!

  3. Nice work. At least you are sticking with your photo a day LOL.. I have given that up and doing a blog post a day.

  4. That's great Helen. I love how you experiment and make the best of less than perfect conditions while still producing wonderful images.
