This photo was taken in the midst of a busy weekend and I just loved slowing down and taking a moment to squeeze some photos in. It was really interesting playing with the lighting and getting it just the way I wanted it. It was neat to see how when the light is coming from a certain side or angle it highlights different features of the subject's face that may not have stood out to you before or may have gone unnoticed. It is quite beautiful to see a whole new side of them and to see them in a "different light".
I really enjoyed this photo challenge and this photo is by far my favourite. I thought it may be hard to capture the web in focus because it is so thin but I think it turned out wonderfully. I love the bright red of the fire hydrant and how it contrasts the leaves in the background. I think the shallow depth of field also adds a lot of interest to this photo.
This photo was really hard for me to take but I`m really pleased with how it turned out. I really wanted to do a macro shot of my cat, but she kept moving. She would not sit still and she made it very difficult to take the picture. I followed her everywhere but she just kept meowing and rubbing against my leg. I had to ignore her for a few hours so she would settle down and sleep. When I found her asleep I ran to get my camera and I took this shot. As soon as I took a few pictures she was woken up by the flash. I was really worried about how the photos would turn out because of the limited amount of time I had to take them. I am so glad this photo turned out the way it did.
This photo challenge was very difficult for me. I have seen photos like this before and I always thought they were absolutely stunning, but had no idea how to create my own. As I set out to take my own, I came up against some challenges. I couldn`t find a lot of moving water near me, everywhere I went the water level was very low. I also couldn`t find any moving water with a big drop that I could get to easily. I wish my photos had turned out better but I am excited to try again in the future now that I know how to take Cotton Candy Water photos.
