365 Project

I think this works for the "graphic" theme because of the way it is framed and the colors. I loved this one anyway!

Daily Click Project

Shh... don't tell, but I'm kinda cheating on this day. I've been so sick the last few days with a head cold and had no desire to leave the house all day, so this one was actually taken the day after.

I LOVED the color of these chairs and set them up like this for this look. I could have had them all be the same color, but I liked that I had only one orange one in the picture. I also liked the white background to make it simple. I was going to crop out the edge of the building, but in the end I liked that it added a little something.

Love the repetition and framing of the mirrors in this picture! I had an idea for this picture when I first saw the room, but when I went to take the picture, one of my friends gave me an even better idea to include more of the mirrors in it. I think our ideas together made it a fun picture!

I'm having a really hard time with this "graphic" theme, so I am just going to do things a little different than I had planned. This week was originally going to be finding letters out of things, but I don't know if I'm creative enough to come up with that stuff, and I'm not sure that it's interesting enough, so I'm just going to wing it this week... we'll see what else I can come up with. Heck, I might even change the whole month!

Fun in Vegas! Loved this wall, so I had to include it in today's 365 Project. This kinda goes with the repetitive lines/graphic theme.

14/365 {Lines}

picture project

I procrastinated again and had little light to play with for my daily picture (taken at 11pm), so I had to get creative with this one. I immediately liked this one when I saw it in camera because of the obscurity of it. It's totally the feeling I was going for. Although is it too obscure? Can you tell what it is?

This week has been a hard one to try to fit the "lines" theme. I'm glad it's a new one tomorrow!!! Oh, and I can't wait because Monday and Tuesdays pictures will be in VEGAS! I'll be there for the WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) convention! I hope I learn lots and come back inspired!

13/365 {Lines}

365 Project

I wanted to play with long shutter speeds, and I have another picture idea in mind, but didn't have much time to play with it. This one took me about 10 mins, so good enough for today.

11/365 {Lines}

Southern Utah Photography

Love the lines in this picture and the contrast of the blue sky to the lighter stadium. I took another picture without the power line in it, but I actually liked this one better. I think the line added *something*. Not sure what it is.
Southern Utah Photography

This was another picture from today. It didn't really fit the theme, but I had to include it because I just liked it so much. Almost looks like water, huh?! Who knew the red hill had a lake up there!?

10/365 {Lines}

Southern Utah Photography

So I took a bunch of pictures today but either I didn't like them enough or I didn't think they fit the "lines" theme. This one I'm just going to make it fit my theme. How? Well, here's my explaination... There's defintitely some horizontal lines in it, not as prominent as I was thinking for this subject, but the "line" that really draws me through this picture is the dots going diagonally through it. I know it's not an actual line, but as far as this picture goes composition wise, I think the dots draw your eye through it in a pleasing way. But really, I just liked the picture, so even if it doesn't totally work for the theme, I'm using it for today anyway!

Ya know, maybe I like it so much because it reminds me of my first house! It was turquoise (much brighter than this one) and it had a cute little mail box by the front door, much like this one, but without the cute floral decoration. Sadly, our old house is no longer that bright, fun color, the current owners repainted it after we sold it... now it's just boring brown! I liked the old charm!

9/365 {Graphic- Lines)

St. George Utah Photographer

I think the lines in this one are very subtle, but still work for the theme. Definitely some good Visual Mass (silhouette figures and light/dark areas of the photo), but I think this picture wouldn't work as well without the very subtle lines leading up to the end of the tunnel and the people there- two of my kids and my husband. I also love the light reflecting off the water.

March {Graphic- Lines} 8/365

St. George Utah Lifestyle Photographer

I chose this picture because I have been learning about visual mass and how your eye is drawn through a picture. When I think of your eye being drawn through a picture I think of lines creating the flow in it. This is not the only way, but since this week is about finding interesting lines, I think this works for an example of lines and having dynamic visual mass. It's not perfect, but I like it.

Project 365

Aaralyn reading. If I knew how to do anything with the video I took, I would post the video of her reading this book, but I'm still working on that. Eventually I'd like to be able to do videography too.

Love doggie wiskers... and noses!

Picture SOOC. ...Okay, minus the rounded edges and my watermark. You know what I mean...

Daily Photo Project

Learned how to do some fun things in photoshop tonight while I was playing.  I thought this effect made this picture look like it had oil spilled on it.
