I wanted to share a few more pictures I took for Picture Spring at Big Picture Classes. It's hard to believe that spring is almost gone and summer is fast approaching. I keep going back and looking at all the beautiful pictures of spring flowers I've taken.
Day 6This is always the toughest prompt there is for me! We were to take a self-portrait. I'd much rather be behind the lens!
Day 7We were to seek out soft, muted tones that sooth and calm. My wisteria was beautiful this year and the smell was wonderful!
We were to capture water drops and see light through them. Of course, there had been no rain here, so I took a squirt bottle and make my own rain! Water droplets are one of my favorite things to photography.
We were to find beauty around our home that we usually don't recognize in our day-to-day chores. This one I struggled with! I just couldn't find anything connected to chores that I thought was beautiful. Glancing around the bathroom I spotted the handle on the toilet. The handle was reflecting things around the tub. I thought it was a cool reflection. I took the shot and then processed it a little bit in Picnik. It turned out to look like a piece of abstract art.
The assignment for this day was to take a picture of the catchlight in someone's eyes. When light hits the eyes just right, it causes a catchlight that adds a twinkle to the eyes. This wasn't hard at all! Little Aaron's eyes always sparkle!
I'll be back soon with more of Picture Spring.
