The theme for this week was artistic Red. I just invested in a tripod recently so I took it out in the town I work after my shift one evening and tried my hand at light trails. One of the members of the facebook group I'm doing this challenge with said it looks like the comic book character The Flash is running by. I dig it. The photo came out way better than I expected, I must say I'm proud of this one! :)
This week's theme was Landscape. I took a few photos on my way to work one foggy morning. I got some of the Rocky Mountains in there and some crisp country landscape in others. Landscape photography is pretty new to me, however, after this challenge, I am going to learn more about it. I really like being able to photograph the beauty I see in my every day travels. Colorado is a beautiful state to live in, there is so much diversity outside and I am really looking forward to expanding my photographic horizons!
I started a new 52 week challenge this week with a Facebook group though Dogwood Photography. Week 1 was self portrait. I set the timer on my camera and learned how to pose myself. It is a lot harder than one would think. It's also challenging to put myself in front of the camera and onto the web. I'm used to being behind it.
I took a photo with the practice swords my husband got me for my birthday with my pointe shoes next to me to try to illustrate both aspects of my life and the balance of masculine and feminine and the strength and softnss of each.
