52 weeks project – week 2

Posted: 15th January 2012 by kolstadmedia in Photo

Picture number two in my 52 weeks series is done! :) Quite a bit of work went in to this one. Because its wintertime where I live, and the sun wont give us more than 2-3 hours of daylight, I had to scramble through my harddrive looking for background pictures that would work. After a whole lot of searching and many cups of coffee later I found the ones I could use. Only thing shot this week is a picture of me holding my Lastolite umbrella :)
The grass, mountains and sky is from my hometown dated back a few years. The water on the other hand is shot on Ellis Island, New York, looking in on Manhattan. :) Anyways, fun weekly picture for me, and as the title says, stay positive!
Take care everyone, and have a great week! :)

Strobist:
1x Canon 430EXII. In my umbrella, over my head. (Duh)
