So I have gotten a bit behind on sharing my 52 week project, hope you will excuse my tardiness. I have had lots of training clients coming through and it doesn’t look like it’ll be slowing down anytime soon. But enough about my real job, here are my photos for April.
LPTG 52 Weeks; Week 13: “New Beginnings”
A crocus found in the flower bed. I love taking pictures of flowers and making them more unusual and unique than people thought they were. If I can get people to take a second look at a flower shot, I have hit my goal. And since these are some of the first flowers to come up for spring I thought it was appropriate for a new season.
LPTG 52 Week Project; Week 14: “Think Small”
I love finding small little treasures on my walks, things people normally wouldn’t bother with. Moss, fungus and lichen are some of my favorites. I loved the color pop this moss lent to the tree. A very small subject for sure, but no less amazing IMO. Really hard for me to “think small” without my macro lens this week. (C&C welcome)
LPTG Week 15: “Paper Airplane”
So, I had all kinds of random ideas for ways to include a paper airplane… but it didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to include Luna in this. And when I saw the Nasa paper I could use to make one, it sealed the deal. I mean her name is Luna afterall, I only thought it appropriate for her to help me with the shot. I love the devlish look in her eye, and while the lighting leaves more to be desired I went with this one for her look. Fire away, I know you are probably getting tired of seeing my Lunatic, but it had to be done.
LPTG 52 Week Project: Week 16; “How do you get from point A to B?”
This is a method of getting from point A to B that I hope to do more of this year. This was shot with Nikon D7000 and my 50mm lens. I really wanted the DOF of the 50mm but did not take into account how far I would need to be from the subject to get the composition I was going for. This posed a problem when I was up on Rowdy taking this picture, I ended up having to lean backwards while trying to compose it. Not the easiest thing to do when you have no saddle on, and he wants to walk you back into the barn. So though it is not tack sharp as I wanted, I do still like it quite a bit. I especially like his ears. Probably because they show he is listening (somewhat). I knew I wanted to play around with the treatment of this photo too, to lend to the feel of the subject which is not normally what I do either, but I like the results.
Anyway, that being said you do not have to like it as much as I. CC (comment/critique) always welcome
So any favorites?? I am considering starting another mini project. A fellow friend/artist started a mini project involving creating everyday and going through the alphabet starting now, June 1st. I am not sure of the direction I will go medium wise, but I know it will involve quite a few photos probably. Maybe it will push me to touch some other mediums I don’t bother to take the time with. What spring projects are you working on?
I love the pictures. It looks like you had lots of fun with all the projects. My favorite picture is the horse.
I like the last picture a lot and of course the one of Luna. 🙂 You did a great job with the subjects given.
