Challenge – Framing

This challenge had to do with “framing” your photos.  Using something natural, or otherwise, to block out the focus of what you wanted focused on. 

I am NOT good at it!

But here is what I got.

The least framed one, this sun flair, yet one of my faves, because – well – sun flair!!

This was my first attempted (above) at using something natural to frame what you want to focus on.  Nature isn’t always your friend.  But I left it in the collection as while not good, it does force you to think harder to get better at your craft.

Overlooking the town of – Bath, NH.  Looking thru two trees.  Putting forth a challenge is fun, gives you the motivation to go out and “try” new things. 

Onto the next!

August Challenge! Bokeh

Bokeh: the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas of a photographic image, especially as rendered by a particular lens.

Sounds easy right? 

NOT!  This was a bit more challenging for me than I had anticipated.  The sun has to be right, the focus has to be “just” right.  I didn’t succeed perfectly but I did get a few good snaps.

Challenge: Patterns

I have a hard time with patterns I am an “odd sock” kind of girl.  You know the things that stand out? 

So this challenge took some work!

While walking around in Bethlehem, I came across these great windows.  I’ve shot them before, but this time I found the one I liked the best, and found the pattern.

The shingles of the same house as the windows lent themselves to more of those lovely patterns.

Nuts and bolts.  Patterns.  Rusty ones at that!

This is the curved wood of the covered bridge.  Light, dark, dark, light.
