Week 1 of the Photo Challenge is done! As we head into week 2, I decided to give myself some concrete goals for my shots this week.
- Use my tripod at least once
- Take photos of the same subject with both of my lenses
- Take one shot fully manually
This week, Days 5-7 were taken with my point and shoot for convenience's sake. I want to push my ability with a point and shoot as well since it's so handy for travelling and really is quite capable of good quality pictures.
Day 4: Something Green
Day 5: From a Low Angle
Day 6: From a High Angle
Day 7: Fruit The most challenging shot this week was fruit. We had no fresh fruit in the house and my daylight hours were waning by the time I would get home from work. The logistics weren't working out when I was figuring out if I could stop by the grocery store on the way home and still style/photograph. I took a bite of doughnut and thought some more. I took another bite and wondered some more. Then it hit me. Coconut is a fruit, no? It's still one of my lazier attempts though.
Day 8: A Bad Habit When I was a kid I chewed my nails off as fast as they could grow in. In an effort to help break the habit, my mom promised I could get my ears pierced at 10 instead of 13. Now, I have my ears pierced and chew my cuticles.
Day 9: Someone You Love Mr. P wasn't around. My family is on the east coast. Not that this rascal is my last choice, but he was certainly the most available model.
Day 10: Childhood Memory Hello Teddy, old friend. Old faithful. From age 2 until 26 he was my only bedfellow. When I moved to NC, Mr. P and I struck a deal. Teddy would retire when we finished our master bedroom renovation. He celebrated that night, and I shed a little tear for Teddy.
October 11: Something Blue When I was Sam's momma, I ordered this sweet watercolor from an artist on Etsy. Sweet blue eyes. Miss this gal.
