I have been plugging away on some creative photo sessions. It is starting to get a little out of control! There are so many different groups and blogs that a photographer can submit pictures to each week. It can get quite overwhelming! But I have had a lot of fun shooting these past couple of weeks.
These first pictures were inspired by a recent photography workshop where we talked about finding shooting locations close to home. This park and pathway are just next to my neighborhood. My daughter and I headed out as the sun was coming down and we got some really cute shots.
This next set of pictures I took one morning when I was hanging out with my son. I am working on this project right now where I am trying to incorporate dappled light. You can see an example of dappled light in this first picture. The other pictures I took just for fun!
These next set of pictures were also taken while I was trying to find potential locations close to home. These beautiful trees blossomed for a very short time right outside a neighborhood close to mine. One night I made the family pull the car over and my oldest daughter and I snapped a few pictures.
These next set of pictures I took last night. My second oldest daughter and I snuck away for a half hour together so I could get some pictures for the theme of “red.” We have had these awesome storm clouds lately and I wanted to capture them in some pictures. I also was trying out my new canon 85mm 1.8 lens. I am already loving it. We had a lot of fun looking for different spots to take pictures. My daughter really got into the creative process and was giving great suggestions. Then we were surprised with this awesome sunset and I was able to take one of my favorite pictures ever.
