dogwood52 week 20 - Composition; From Below

Image
I really like the old mill water towers around town. This one sits next to the Eagle & Phenix Mill complex on the river. This is actually a shot that I have taken many times, but I liked the crop on this one and the color tones. I am not sure when the tower was built, but the adjacent mill complex was built in the 1850's and the milled cotton was used to make uniforms for confederate soldiers.  ***

Create a starburst. I procrastinated on this one and had to use a shot from earlier this year. 

May CDP Theme Day - Laugh

My husband is always up for a photo. We were having a good laugh on the patio and I was just snapping away. He has kept me laughing for 40+ years. Laugh on!!!

We went camping for a week at an area state park. On the second day we witnessed the demise of a couple of [apparently] healthy at the had of park employees.  "Take paradise and put up a parking lot..."

War Eagle!

dogwood52 week 16 - Technical; portrait lighting

Image
I typically hate photos of myself, but I actually kind of like this one. It’s all about the sunglasses, right? The challenge this week involved the use of portrait lighting: split, loop, butterfly, or rembrandt.  Because I do not typically do portraiture, I don't have any fancy light setups but I did do some research. I guess this qualifies as 'Rembrandt' lighting.

dogwood52 week 15 - Composition; Rule of space

I was procrastinating on this challenge photo, but I think I like my staged version better than a stereotypical man/child/woman walking/running/riding a bike in front of a blank wall. This is my staged depiction of The Great America Eclipse (TGAE). We were in the line of totality in Dillard, GA on 21 August 2017. The eclipse in the photo is a painting I did of the eclipse. ***
