Bringing in the Dawn Part 2


Blogger micki said...

Camera - Konica Minolta 70
Film - Kodak Gold ISO 100
Shutter Speed - 1/60
Aperture Setting - f-11 Program Mode
Lens - Minolta 28-85mm zoom lens
Polarizing Lens
Scanning Method - My scan from my cheap little hp officejet 5510v all-in-one copy/scanner/faxer/printer

It is hoped that you would respect my ownership of the images posted here on Shutterbug Underexposed, despite the ease with which you could copy my photos. If you would like a true photographic print of any of my images, please contact me at and I will be happy to provide you with one.

Another shot from the chilly morning series. I’m a little disappointed with the scan, but I’m running on only two sessions of sleep totaling four and half hours in all, so I’m too tired to fight with my scanner today. I didn’t get up and go shooting, I just got up at one and stayed up until 5:30 surfing blogs I haven’t visited in a long time and looking for films that seem to be impossible to get. I found one supplier for a Kodak B&W Portra film I want to try, but I have to make a minimum purchase of $100 to buy from this seller. While normally that isn’t a difficult thing for me to do when shopping for photography “stuff,” this place sells mostly digital photography supplies, and don’t offer enough items for me to fill a cart with a hundred dollars worth of supplies. Hmmm, unless I buy a scanner from them. They do sell the one I want, and after today’s scanning session, that might not be a bad purchase to make right now.

Have a great weekend!

again, a very beautiufl view. i like the gradiant color change in horizon. the texture of the sands on the forground is what i like next. i have mix feelings about the composition. your daughter in the corner immediately takes my eyes to her. on the same side of the photo there are the rocks and i feel the left side of the photo is visually heavier and my eyes are not spending enough time with the rest of the photo. i like the photo as it stands though :)

The large version here is a must-see - love how the gradient in the sky complements the 'gradient' of textures on the beach.

Now get some sleep!

Fabulous shot even with the not so great scan.

I think you deserve to give yourself a new scanner. After all, 'Tis the Season...Right?

Amazing shot it evocates some painting ... A new favorite on your blog!

Maybe it's because I figured this was from the chilly morning shots that it seemed beautifully sad and forlorn. Nothing McDonald's pancakes won't fix, right?

Beautiful sunrise picture. Your daughter should be commended for battling the cold in the name of art.

A new scanner sounds like a spendid way to make it up to the minimum order. It seems like you are having constant issues with your current scanner and we all want to see all the detail in your wonderful pictures.

Nice sunrise (Sunrises are more fun than sunsets). I like the person in the foreground. People in landscapes are neat!

A peaceful, calming photo. It could be called contemplation.

Could so easily be chilly evening also, I wonder why my first reaction before reading your text is to think this is dusk.
