Brushing up on ye olde website

Well… It’s starting to look better. I did a few minor css changes and modified the header on soft-graphix.com and some tweaking to twitter & wordpress. At this point, I’m going to try and incorporate the chosen color (#35290f) to bring consistency across the various sites. I’m not entirely sure what my limitations are with WordPress, though I’ll put that thought on the back burner for the time being. The new theme that is in use now has a sans-serif font and a white background… so it’s closer than before.

Now I can get back to taking pictures. Today I opened the fridge and snapped a shot. Not a great picture:

On the checklist of things needed, a tripod. Because my hand is less-than-steady I opted for a high iso instead of a slower shutter speed. By doing that, I caused my picture to become very grainy indeed. I did run the image through a photo editing program to crop and add some different lighting techniques. The goal was to try and make an interesting image with the refrigerator. Came out kind of dark and bleak. Has a very ‘homemade’ feel to it.

What a great day!

A day out on the town!

Looking up the wall at neon!

Trying to train myself to take pictures of things I wouldn’t normally think to take a picture of… like a wall. I have an automatic setting on the camera that looks like a candle burning for low-light conditions (the camera only allows me to manually get up to 1600 iso, while the candle icon selects 2000+ iso that’s great for low light.  Just have to keep a steady hand as the shutter speed is also low. The black ceiling helps the brick really stand out.
