This month, the Photo Ladies are participating in another photo challenge. The goal is to get out from behind the camera and into the memories with your families. I’m hoping to expand our knowledge from the original lessons from No Bad Foto and to get us to get out and use our cameras more. I find that I do better and practice more when I have monthly goals. Are you the same way?
The prompts for this week were…
- July 1st: Self Portrait
- July 2nd: Lines
- July 3rd: Backlight
- July 4th: Action
- July 5th: Bokeh
You can find the entire calendar with all the photo prompts here.
Here are my portraits from this week! Enjoy!
One of my favorite things to do while drinking coffee is to read a book on my Kindle. I’m currently in an online book club and am a little behind on the book we’re supposed to have finished. Oops! So I’ve been trying to catch up the past few days. (and you may or may not recognize this top from my 3rd Stitch Fix box! I’m obsessed, it’s so comfortable!)
I took maternity photos for a friend last week and I was so excited about how they came out! It was my first photo shoot and I really enjoyed myself.
I originally said I was not going to use the same subject two days in a row, but the backlight in this photo is just perfect. And so is the model!
My niece turned one on July 1st and we had so much fun celebrating her birthday! I have to say, there is nothing cuter than watching a baby eat cake.
I can honestly say now that while I love the look of bokeh, I hate photographing it. This was the hardest picture to take! It took a lot of setting up, figuring out the right angle, trying to get the lights in the back to blur just right, etc. And it still isn’t perfect!
What do you think?
If you’re following along with the photo prompts, which one did you find most challenging?
