This week's theme was texture, and I found myself very struck by the topography of this plaque when we were in Memorial Hall at the Naval Acadamy last weekend. I desperately wanted to run my fingers across it, but I thought that might be just a smidge disrespectful (something about being at the USNA made me feel like I needed to be on my best behavior) so I'll settle for having this photo.
This week's theme was Low Light... for this shot I used the Softbox Pro app for my iPad as my only light source. I held the iPad in one hand and the camera in the other and played around with the angles until I got something I liked. Oh, and sorry about the lack of makeup. ;)
I mentioned that one of my goals for this year is to participate in a Project 52 photography project, and I'm pleased to report that I'm officially one month in. I'm participating in this with over 400 other Clickin Moms members, and we have suggested themes to follow for each week. Let me tell you, the work these girls have submitted so far has been incredible and so inspiring. It's amazing to see everyone's vastly different takes on the same theme. Here are my photos, so far: Week 1 | New Year
Week 2 | Silhouette
Yyyyyeah, so I'm really proud of this one, but it's also super personal and I don't feel comfortable sharing it with the masses. I promise I will try my best to make sure this is the only one I can't share with you. Sorry!
Week 3 | Shallow Depth of Field
Week 4 | Weather
I'm planning to post these on a weekly basis from now on (probably on Mondays) so stay tuned, and thanks for looking! :)
