Project52 - Week Five: Reading

Week 5's photo is one I started planning around week 2 or 3 I think! My problem was that I feel awkward taking photos of myself when people could potentially be watching. Finally a day came round when no one was home so I ducked outside and took it.


It's a good way of showing how I've essentially spent most of my free time since the start of the uni summer holidays - I've read the complete works of Jane Austen, Michael J. Fox's autobiography 'Always Looking Up', the complete Twilight saga, the complete Keys to the Kingdom series and I've just started on the book pictured - a collection of the works of the Bronte sisters (I'm trying to read some more classics, and I'm quite enjoying them). Reading has been easier than movie watching this summer - I've spent part of it with various renovations, meaning the house hasn't been as cool as normal, so it's been too hot to have my computer on my lap.


This photo was actually a test photo, but I liked it the best out of what I took, so I've cropped it to get rid of my hand holding the wireless remote. Not sure if it looks odd? I also had the issue that in front of the tree was quite dark and the paddock quite bright, so I used a Curves adjustment layer and masked out the paddock bit, then did a Levels adjustment over the top. Quite happy with how it came out.
