Hi Outsideshot,

You can't do anything about series - all shots are grouped according to the day they were taken. You can't make your own series, though that would be fun. Even if you only shoot one day a week, but that day you take 500 shots at seven different locations, of seven different subjects, they all go in that day's series - you can't spread them out.

I can understand if you got that impression from all the swan pictures, but it's just my incredible good fortune to live by this pond, and these are all taken 100' from my back door. This pair has visited in the spring and fall for several years, but this year they're staying, and built their nest 100yds away in clear view from my spot, (and from my windows until the trees leaf out). So I go down there several times a day, often when I know the light is good, and as soon as they see me they swim right over. In the close-ups they're about 10' away. I can't take any credit beyond befriending them.

But it gives me lots of practice, which I need, to shoot them in sunlight - they're just sooo WHITE. I made a custom 'Swan' preset in the camera that turns contrast down, and then edit with fill light and backlight filter. I'm getting there. (And this time of year their heads and necks are tan, from mucking around in the remains of last year looking for new growth.)

I've never really seen cygnets - this is going to be very cool!

Or do you mean shots you don't want to show in your gallery? In that case, check the box for portrait/blog on the upload page

About isight


Living on Cape Cod in this beautiful spot, trying to notice what the days have to offer, playing along with life as it unfolds, celebrating the wonder of it all. I explore and experiment with the camera, trying to see more than the obvious, looking for fascinating details, unusual subjects, novel views, the overlooked, and the borderline abstract. I love the process - shooting gets me to look, and looking gets me to shoot. Really, looking gets me to see - to observe, notice, pay attention, grow curious, and learn the ways and patterns and rhythms of my surroundings. Beyond light - the given - within and without - I'm fascinated by water - drops, ripples, waves, reflections, distortions, ice - and the life around me, and fascinated by how we make sense of what we see, or not. Through the camera it's about how it looks more than what it is. Play with it! This is a great site - enthusiastic, appreciative, and inspiring - a place to enjoy beautiful photos, learn about people, places, and things, make friends, and learn about photography at one's own pace (while motivated by the one week time constraint). Without this site and the encouragement of many members, I wouldn't have kept at it, and I'm forever grateful. Most of all, I learned here that photos are a way to communicate not just what I see, but perhaps how I see. I've gotten comments from people worldwide saying an image somehow touched their lives - a moment of beauty, a chuckle, a new idea - and I still find that awesome, and humbling.
