Week 15 High Key


We  had tons of rain this week, and not many days with sunlight to take a good High Key photo  – In spite of the gloomy days,  I think this came out ok using white boards to bounce light….. A challenge was the distracting shadows and glare that I was not able to diminish so I need more practice when the sun comes back!  Colleen

Colleen- A gorgeous display of tulips at the Arboretum this week. I created the bokeh effect focusing in the tulips in front and then gradually blurring images of more tulips and other garden visitors.

Week 12 Abandoned

The abandoned Macy’s Downtown. I was able to sneak a pic through a hole in the temporary drywall…          – Maria


There couldn’t have been a better theme for this week! We bought our first home over the weekend and moved out of our rental – while it’s been a great home to us, we abandoned it! – Sarah


Abandoned Doll House-  I’m refurbishing a 1960’s doll house from the thrift store and cleared out all of the furniture to sand and paint the walls covered in layers of vintage wallpaper – This picture was taken in the basement with low light and shadows, so the back walls are grainy but the focus on the miniature two inch doll dresser came out pretty sharp. ( the fire was edited in) – Colleen

Next weeks theme word is Bokeh

Wikipedia- In photography, bokeh (originally /ˈboʊkɛ/, /ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay — also sometimes pronounced as /ˈboʊkə/ BOH-kə, Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. Bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light”.
