Color | 52 Week Project | Week 17

Happy Friday,

The theme for the blog this week is color. I do love some bright colors in my photography. It’s funny because some of my very favorite photographers work in black and white or with subtle and faded color so I’m not sure why I love color so much when I take photos but I do. Maybe it has something to do with the happy feelings I have when I take photos. It could also be our location. We aren’t called Colorful Colorado for nothing.

Boo Radley’s butterfly headband was made by my husband. I came home with a spring banner I bought in the party section of Target for $5 and cut the strings off the butterflies and my husband hot glued them to a headband for me. I removed the wires in Photoshop to make them look like they were floating above his head.

I admit it, I love this photo of Boo Radley.

Catchlights | 52 Week Project | Week 46

Happy Friday!

The theme for the 52 Week Project is Catchlights. For those of you who aren’t photographers or are new to photography they are the little highlights in a person or a pets eyes.  They make a world of difference in a photo.

As you can see in this photo there is the tiniest, little pin of a highlight at the top of Boo’s eyes. Not a great example of catchlights at all. He was looking down and they just weren’t visible. It’s not a bad image but it’s not great either.

This is much better. Thanks for looking up Boo.

You can really see them here. The catch lights are rectangular shaped because I used a rectangular shaped light source.

Here they are both in the same space, equal number, and same shape. Amazing how that little tiny part of a photo makes a huge difference isn’t it?
