I found a new blog this week, Rambling and Photos by Ashley Sisk. She hosts the Scavenger Hunt Sunday link-up. Every Sunday, she posts her photos from the precious weeks list as well as a list of 5 photos to find for the next week. She encourages you to be creative when interpreting the list. I decided that this would be a fun way to get more practice and to get photos of things other than my kids (although I do realize that 3 of out 5 photos this week are of my baby girl...oops)! As you can see, I do love photographing my kids but I think that expanding my subject matter will help me improve my photography overall. So here goes!
Forest - I got a little creative with this prompt and decided to use this photo of Lily in a forest of toys!
Morning Light - I love the less harsh light of early morning and late afternoon. This was taken at the playground this morning, it was Lily's first time swinging, she loved it!
Touch - This photo was taken when we got home from the playground. Lily was exhausted enough that I could carry her in from the car without her waking up, which is a rare occurrence around here. I love how she fell asleep holding her Sophie giraffe.
Newspaper - I don't really have time to sit and read a newspaper these days but I do like to keep up with the goings on in the world so I rely on news websites and social media to keep me up to date.
Coffee or Tea - If you had asked me this question a couple of years ago, I would have answered with orange juice! I did not like coffee until I had a job that required me to work the night shift on occasion. Everyone always told me that I would find the love for coffee in college but that never happened. I am still not a daily drinker but I do enjoy an iced coffee every now and then.
The list for next week is:
-Rule of thirds
I am excited to see what I can come up with and I hope to learn something along the way!
