Well, believe it or not, we made it!  28 days of images, not all winners, but I hope you learned something along the way, I sure did.  I’m now pumped for Spring and getting out and shooting some more!  I’ve tried to interject some teaching along the way and so I will for this last image of the series.  Remember that camera, lenses and accessories are only tools for making images.  Today I drove up to London Kentucky along with Chester and visited the  Levi Jackson Wilderness Road Park.  I stopped at the old grist mill to shoot the flowing water,  It was beautiful bright blue sky day and I did not have any neutral density filter with me.  Shooting a slow shutter speed to blur the water was out of the question with my X-T5.  However the iPhone has a Live setting that makes a longer exposure and then can be selected to show the blur of movement all in one frame!  It worked!

I’ve enjoyed doing this project and will try to think of something new, for now thank you for coming along!

I broke the rules today on the 27th day of the challenge, to prove a point!  I went out in search of today’s image and only had to drive a couple of blocks from house in the sub-division where we live.  A neighbor was flying an American flag and the wind was really ripping!  I really wanted this shot, but I knew that shooting just one frame, the chances of catching this shot was nearly impossible.  So I used the advantage of my camera that can shoot 15 frames per second in continuous high.  I shot 45 frames to get this one!  I rarely shoot in continuous high, but when you need it, it works miracles!

Our church family went to the local cinema tonight, as a group, to see the new film, The Jesus Revolution. If you are a believer you must go and see it, if your not you may be by the time you exit the theatre!  It was well done film with first class acting and a great TRUE story!  Do yourself a favor, get down to the theatre and take this one in!!!!

Being a member of the Bag of the Month Club has finally overwhelmed me!  I pulled all the camera bags out today, I am not currently using,  and stacked them up in the hallway to decide what to offer for sale.  I’m not doing well with that either!  So here is the deal, anything marked FREE, claim it and pay the shipping and it will be on the way to you! If you want one that is priced, same thing.  If you see one you really want that says I’m keeping it make me an offer.  For any of these options email me at  billfortneyphoto@gmail.com  I will respond back to you and we will get going on it!  I pray you never fall into this trap!!!!
