When I began jogging last year, I did it for several reasons. I wanted to improve my health. I wanted to increase my endurance and I wanted to participate in a 5K marathon. There were many instances when I didn’t want to run. Jogging wasn’t my passion, but I persevered because I had a purpose.
I’m in the 12th day, 2nd week, and 1st month of a 365 day, 52 week, and 12 month challenge. Now, I’m fighting the PhotoChallenge fatigue. Unlike jogging, photography is my passion and this challenge provides a daily purpose. However, the challenge is not so much taking the photo, but finding something creative or inspiring around me. This week I traveled and I looked around my every day surroundings to find something memorable.
I went to Peterborough last week to photograph the Peterborough Cathedral interior. I used the HDR method to combine the various exposures. This church has been a goal of mine for several months and I’m pleased with the results.
I also included some shots taken throughout the week. I took the tree photo using the “Tungsten” setting. This setting is normally for indoor use. It compensates for the yellowish indoor light by adding a blue tint. Without the yellow light to cancel the blue, the camera produces the following result. The second image was taken using the “Auto White Balance” setting. This setting adjusts for the ambient light. UPDATE: I wanted to add the still life image with the bowl of fruit.
I’m enjoying the daily challenge and I hope you enjoy the results. If you want to see more photos, please visit the Flickr site.
P.S. I didn’t participate in the 5K marathon due to scheduling conflicts. However, I will participate in one this year!
