It's day 9 of my marathon effort of photographing 55 recipes in under 28 days. I have photographed 29 recipes so far and have 26 to go so I am past the half way mark. The end of this week has been difficult mentally and physically as I went out on a sprint earlier in the week trying to complete between four and five recipes a day to get ahead. This left me feeling pretty wrecked by the middle of the week which in turn left me only completing two recipes a day for the latter part.
The dreary weather and overcast days have wreaked havoc on my photographs and pushed my skills to its limit. There was one particular day which the sun didn't peek its shining face out at all which left me in a quandary to try and maintain the bright and airy feel to the photographs. I have only started using the Manual setting on my camera over the past month so I am still learning on the fly on how to best use this setting to take a good photograph. Previously I had been using the Aperture Priority setting but wanted to push myself to learn the manual side of the camera.
