P52 Week 14 – Framing

This week was framing!  I always love to use natural framing around my subject to draw your eye to them.  In landscape photography you use the natural elements – rocks, trees, water etc to frame but with people I suppose you have to get a little creative.  Sure trees and rocks and what not work…

P52 Week 13 – Lines

This week is about lines.  My first thought was about leading lines – lines that draw you in or lead you through an image.  Then I thought line of sight – subjects in the image looking off one side or another making you wonder what they see.  I settled on lines as texture in an…

What to wear: Spring Sessions!

I get a lot of questions about what to wear when coming to a family photo shoot.  I always like to say “just come as yourself” but that’s not always enough for some.  I’ve put together two style boards to hopefully spark some ideas.  In general it’s great to coordinate but not exactly match.  Stay…

P52 Week 12 – Centered Composition

I’m running waaaay behind on my P52 project!  I’ve been shooting but not necessarily along the theme.  So, I’m trying to catch up.  This week (2 weeks ago!) was all about centered composition.  Generally when you frame up a picture you want to follow the rule of thirds (nutshell: draw a three by three grid…

P52 Week 11 – Negative Space

This week’s prompt was about negative space.  When I first started photography I was all about filling the frame with my subject and while that has its place, I needed to find some variety so I started reading up on negative space.  Negative space is the area which surrounds the main subject in your photo….

Enjoying the time change!

As the time changed and gave us more evening light, the weather finally broke which means everyone made their way out of the woodwork!  Our neighbors were kind enough to let the kids jump their energy out on their trampoline!

New Toys!

I’ve been wanting to upgrade camera bodies for a while now but never really had the push to do so.  A increase in photo shoots and a nice tax return means I could finally take the jump.  These are the first shots off the camera the night I got it.  I’m in love!

This week was an open week – photographers choice.  We were encouraged to go out and try something different vs. using something from the archives.  I spent some time working on macros!

Snow Day!

This winter has been a long cold one with very little snow. For the kids of the neighborhood it’s been rather disappointing. This weekend however delivered both great show and beautiful weather to be out in to enjoy it. We spent hours on the big hill, breaking in the middle for naps and some coco…

P52 Week 8 – Low Light

The prompt this week was low light. This one was in the basement with a big double sliding door but it was far enough away and there was little other ambient light that I had to jack the ISO up to the max of my camera – 3200. The subject is the one you’ll always…
