I have been so inspired! I’m reading The Photographer’s Eye by Michael Freeman which builds upon the Shooting 301: Elements of Design class that I took last fall with Sarah Wilkerson at Clickin Moms. Everywhere I turn, I’m seeing through my lens. I’m seeing texture, form, lines, color… I’m so energized! I hope this feeling lasts for a long time. 🙂 Here’s my second week of the year.
Day Eight ~ Studious Boy
Dominic was working on his TAG math homework and I saw angles. I knew I wanted to capture his handwriting during this time, he’s growing up so fast.
Day Nine ~ Morning Rain
With Curtis traveling, I took Dominic to school. I’m so lucky that Daddy does this most mornings. It was cold and rainy.
Day Ten ~ Little Ladybug
I walked to pick up Dominic after school and on our way home, he spotted this tiny ladybug. I’d never seen a yellow one before!
Day Twelve ~ Chair
The kids were playing video bowling and I was struck with the lines of the deck out back, so I moved a kitchen chair there in front of the door and began moving it around… experimenting with the light and lines. I even like the smudged up windows… this is our life.
Day Thirteen ~ Shoulder and Sternum
I have been wanting to do some macro work with Dominic. His little shoulders have that sweet fuzz that will soon turn dark. I love the way the light plays with the shadows on his shoulder, neck, and sternum.
Day Fourteen ~ Strawberry Bokeh
You know how much I love macro and in cutting up strawberries for a snack, I wondered what the tiny seeds would like blown up. Seeing the curved strawberrry bokeh from the highlights was a nice suprise!
Thanks for looking!
