P52 - Week 7

I'm a little late in posting this, but the photo did come from the correct week.

As I have mentioned, part of what I am hoping to get out of this challenge is to broaden my skill set with my camera. I want to get better both stylistically and technically. To do that, I have to step outside of my box a bit and try new things.

So, what to shoot?

This week, I (literally) decided to test the waters, so to speak. OK ... the puns are getting thick and I should just spit it out. *shakes head* I know, I can't seem to help myself.

ANYWAY ... water was the theme. More specifically, water from my kitchen tap. Trying to freeze the motion and ... see what I could see.

Here is my favorite from the set:

It's not exactly what I was going for, especially with the flash and shadows, but in the end, I still like it.

I tried a couple of different set ups and a couple of different settings. And of all the things I tried, I liked this best.

I'm going to keep trying new things. I know some will work and some will require more work from me. But that is the point of these exercises. And I'm feelin' pretty good about it right now.


About This Blog

I'm a proud mom of a very active little boy. I have truly enjoyed the opportunity to document the many milestones throughout his life so far. These moments are precious to me. So I grabbed a camera and snapped away. I dabbled a bit in scrapbooking and took some time to learn at least the basics of photography. After all, kids grow so fast and you can't turn back the time.

But as he got old enough for school and team sports, I was so very disappointed in the offerings out there. I'm proud of my All Star in every thing he pours his heart into!

So I picked up a copy of Photoshop and tried my best to create momentos to capture these memories.

I'd love a chance to help you stop time for a moment as well.
