This week's challenge was to take transportation to a unique and artistic level. I think I nailed the unique portion of it anyway. Also, I've been watching a lot of Xfiles lately...
This week's photography challenge was "reflection landscape" I chose to take a photo of one of my cat's with the reflection of outside in their eyes. My mom's cat, Galileo, was up for the task.Getting a decent photo of him was challenging, he's always on the move, unless of course he's asleep.
This week's challenge was to photography a person in their environment. I chose my mom in her natural environment: by the window, in the sunshine, reading a book. My mom is camera shy and getting her to let me take her photo was in itself a challenge! She proved to be a great subject for my portrait, however.
To do this week's artistic shadow, I used a couple of vases I had to create a colorful shadow instead of the typical black and white. I love to be creative and try new things with my photography, creating a colorful shadow photo was a great way to stretch my own imagination and try something new! I took this photo in the early morning when the sun was streaming into the living room window casting shadows through the blinds and onto the vases.
This week's photo was taken in Windsor, CO at the lake there in town. The lake is still partially frozen over, the geese are flying around it, and the lake reeds are still brown. While the wind sometimes blows a hint of spring, the rest of the earth around here is still stuck in winter. I feel an early spring approaching, however.
Got a great photo of my Maine Coon meditating in the sun the other day. It may be a faceless photo, but he is all ears. So full of personality and life.
This week was a fun one! A good time to get creative and shoot up close and personal with one of my favorite candies! I used Lindt truffles as my subject. The white chocolate and peppermint kind. I took a lot of photos and "posed" my candy many different ways, finally I got a shot worth posting! It was a fun experiment this week.
For this week's challenge, my subject was the Rocky Mountains again. I drive towards them every day going to work, they are a beautiful part of the scenery. They are a little bit different every day, the way the clouds are, the way the sun shines on them. They stay the same, but are subtly different every single day. Just like most people, we stay mostly the same, but little things change us every day to shape us into who we are.
For this photo, I did a High Dynamic Range shoot. I shot 3 photos at the same subject with different settings and combined them all together on my photo editing software. I was pleased with the result. My husband made it his desktop on his computer! Flattering!
My husband and I went to Ft Collins for breakfast the other day and as we were walking back to the car, I saw a neat looking wall which I thought would be great for this week's challenge! So my wonderful husband let me take his photo and I think it turned out great. Although, that could be a biased opinion.
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! :)
