Day 362

Exif Data: Nikon D3200 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55; ISO 100; 1/80 s, reversed.

Another week is getting started today, but this one is special to me, is the last week of my project and although I’ll be very busy studying for some exams, I’ll try my best to shoot good photos for the last days of this project.

Today I wanted to compose something that involved lines, I didn’t know what I could use for it; later on I found a blue crowned motmot’s feather in my drawer; I found that feather a couple of months ago in the university; I’ve been collecting different feathers that I’ve found, specially the colorful ones and I see that they can be interesting subjects.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.



Otra semana empieza, pero esta es una semana especial para mi, es la semana final de este proyecto, y aunque voy a estar muy ocupado estudiando para exámenes voy a hacer mi mayor esfuerzo para que las últimas fotos sean muy buenas.

Hoy quise componer algo con lineas, no sabía qué usar para esto, pero en mi cajón encontré una pluma de un barranquero que encontré hace unos meses en el suelo de la universidad; ultimamente he esztado coleccionando plumas que encuentro, sobre todo si son coloridas, y ya veo que son interesantes para hacer fotos y componer con ellas.

Day 96

Hi Everybody!

I really wanted to go out today and do some urban photos, but I’m very sick, so I decided to stay home taking care of myself and turn this day into a macro-monday.

I’ve written before that I’m such a big fan of feathers, specially peacock’s feathers because of its colors and the eye spot that it has, and I like playing with the water as well, so even though I didn’t do anything with water falling as I’m used to, I managed to use it in a different way, I put 2 drops onto the feather so that in one of them the water reflected part of it and made bigger its details, and the other one is out of focus just to create some bokeh.

Exif Data: Nikon D5000 ; Lens:  Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55 with a close-up lens; 52 mm, ISO 200; f/9 ; 1/320s.

Feel free to leave feedback, critiques or suggestions.

Have a great week!


Hola a todos!

Hoy quería salir a tomar fotos en la calle, hacer algo urbano y buscar cosas curiosas; pero estoy muy enfermo, así que decidí quedarme en la casa cuidándome y convertir el lunes de salida, en un lunes de macro.

Ya había escrito alguna vez que las plumas de pavo real me gustan mucho, especialemente por sus colores y por la mancha en forma de ojo que tienen; también me gusta jugar con el agua, y aunque hoy no hice ninguna foto de gotas de agua cayendo y generando un impacto, si la utilicé.

Puse dos gotas de agua sobre la pluma, una la enfoqué para que los detalles se reflejaran y se hicieran mas grandes, la otra la desenfoqué para crear un efecto de bokeh en la foto.

Datos de las foto: Nikon D5000 ; Lente: Nikkor AF-S DX 18-55 con un lente close-up; 52 mm, ISO 200; f/9 ; 1/320s.

Day 5

Today’s picture is a peacock’s feather, something that might be familiar for some of you, because it’s become very popular when it comes to decoration, masks, costumes, jewerly and so on.

Peacock is an asiatic specie of bird well known by its colorful long eye spotted tail.

A peacock sports about 150 of these feathers that are pretty long; but every year they are shed after the breeding season.

Some facts about these birds:

In Hinduism, the peacock represents benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and knowledge

The Greco-Roman Mythology the “eyes” upon the peacock’s tail represents the vault of heaven, and the eyes of the stars.

Babylonia and Persia see the peacock as a guardian to royalty.

Christianity considers the peacock as a symbol of eternal life. It also represents resurrection, renewal ans immortality.
