Confession time: Right when I wanted to get more serious about my Project 52 photos, I picked up a project at work. Like, a doozy of a project. And when I drain my brain at work during the day, I fall face first into my bed at night. Most weeknights you can find me changed into my pajamas by 7p — that way if I start to doze off, I can just climb into bed without having to do my nightly routine right before.
I’ve had my camera with me everyday, but not a lot of time to get away and explore. I’ve had a few photowalks that have been fun… but not like what I wanted at the beginning of May.
Now we’re facing the end of June… and too many outtakes for “from below” to count.
Settings: f/16.0, 1/100 sec, 35mm, ISO 100
Camera and Lens: Canon EOS 5D Mark III with Canon EF35mm f/1.4L USM
Narrowing down to an image this week was hard because I didn’t like any of them. But after playing around with a couple that included big, fluffy white clouds… a little editing and cropping… this was the one that spoke the most to me.
I’m not sure what building this is… but that doesn’t matter because the sky was bright blue, the clouds were happy and the most perfect breeze was blowing. It might be teetering in the high 80s, but we were handed a few great days of weather. So I stood on the hot pavement and aimed my camera toward the sky. You can’t win them all, but you can appreciate a beautiful day outside.
Week 26: Photographer’s Choice
Another quarter has passed us by and we’re going to have another “photographer’s choice” prompt! It’s nice to take a little break between all the different themes, so this week share your favorite photo with our Flickr group. I challenge to choose only ONE image to share — not two, not three, ONLY ONE IMAGE! Being selective with the photos we choose to share is part of this project, and it helps us figure out our style and define who we are as photographers. If you need a little guidance, I’ve included some articles below that might help you choose the perfect photo.
If you post your images on Instagram or any other social media, use the hashtag #2017project52 so that we can find your work and give it some love!
