Photo 52, Week 4, Dreams

This week was dreams, my Angel dreams of doing Ballet and dancing.  we have tried this photo before, but I was not in love with it because I didn’t have toe shoes.  I still think that this is an image I will revisit a few more times.  Here I wanted to make the image also feel very aged almost as if it were dreams passed and old.  Never attained.  photo 52 week 4_dreams photo 52 week 4_dreams 2

I am hoping one day we can get her back into some good dance classes.

I love the process of aging many of my photos, I try not to overdo the process, but for a lot of my more artsy images I really like the feel of the images.

Photo 52 week 3, triptych

I love flowers, they are what I love to photograph when I can shoot whatever I want.  I did some fun and simple edits to my flowers and put them together into a triptych for this week.  I have had these flowers sitting in my studio for a couple of weeks… I have been in a few times and shot them and since they were about to die I decided to use them one more time for this week.

I have been inspired lately again by Harold Davis, even though I shoot differently than he does… he finds great beauty in flowers in all different angles and styles.

I hope if you are in a cold area that you are warm and cozy this week and if you are somewhere warm… well send some of that warmth this way!

Project Photo 52, Glitter, Sparkles, and Shine!

This past week for the photo 52 project we were concentrating on glitter, sparkles, and shine.  That does not mean we had to photograph something that was literally glittery, sparkly, and shiny… But really that is what I decided to photograph.  I took some of the glitter in my studio and put it on the bottom of a crystal glass and photographed it.  I used my 100mm Macro lens with extension tubes to really get in there close and get a shot.  I was not really jumping for joy over this image when I first created it and edited it, but the more I look at the image the more I like it.  I love glitter and I love sparkles and so do my kids and that is why I decided to photograph the glitter.  I hope that you all enjoy my image.  Tell me about how you are doing with your projects and resolutions so far this year.
