During our evening dog walk I thought I’d shoot the reflection of the mountain relief in the perfectly still water of this fountain. Then, Paco decided to check out his own reflection and photo bomb my shot! He’s famous for photo bombing my pics but, once again, he made the shot way more interesting. I love Paco, my photo bomber! LOL
When I set up this photo I was initially just wanting to take advantage of the gorgeous light and take a pic with some negative space. Then when I saw how those clouds looked like caption bubbles, I asked Nora to stretch her arms out wide and give me a happy face. It was too sunny for her to look at me so I had her raise her face with her eyes closed. Then, I had her try another pose with just one hand up, looking like she was serving up that cloud. And, to get that perspective that she’s way up high, I just crouched down low. That piece of driftwood is not that high. (BTW – do you see that she’s riding a driftwood bunny rabbit? Nora wanted me to point that out to you!) I thought about making these into cards for her grandparents but, mostly it was fun intentionally composing a photo for a caption. I also realized that I tend to take pics with my negative space on the right, instead of on the left, and those pics don’t make for the best facebook cover photos. Well, there you go…a fun photo project for you. 🙂 See more of my 365 Project: Untouched photos from my Nikon D5000 with 50mm lens
I took a few shots of this green smoothie in a wine glass for my other blog, The Juicy Mamas, and loved how it looked against these hot pink daisies and black table. The subject matter here isn’t exactly spectacular but, sometimes choosing colors that POP can make for an interesting photo. Do you agree? Let me know!
I’m running a summer arts camp this week so I’m taking 5 minutes a day to quickly shoot and post what I get. I have a hanging fuchsia basket outside our front door and I aimed my camera underneath. I saw that the majority of this fuchsia was brown and quite frankly…kind’ve ugly. So, I decided to crop it tightly to leave some of the petals against a lot of blue sky. I like the colors and the negative space. What do YOU think? I love feedback so let me have it! 🙂
It seems like this photo could work for a card background or some flowery quote like this:
“Be like the flower, turn your faces to the sun.”
