I only had three ideas for this “depth” theme, and they’re the same ideas I had last years “perspective” theme. One was a close-up macro, photo stacked to get all the detail front to back and, one was of a golf shot coming at me where hubby was in the background and the ball was close, the other was of Taylor hopefully with the tip of her arrow to her eye all in sharp focus.
Here are the three I sent in this year for the CCoH critique by Walter Arnold. I looked for a reference I’d seen a long time ago that showed a sailboat. One placed it in the upper third of the frame, the other the lower third. One, I think the one higher in the frame made it look a greater distance away. I thought of that when Arnold was talking about cropping photos but I never could find the example again.
I wasn’t going to enter the print competition because I spend too much time and too much money having prints printed, mating or backed, choosing three and then storing prints that I don’t have room for…. but then, I did. Congrats to all the winners! I’m not sure which photo was marked which but my #s were 11, 31 and 51 so I can go back and see their score at some point. Continue reading
Fences make good neighbors AND gave me something to enter for CCoH.
Yes, I like a good fence. Here are the three I chose to enter for CCoH’s May theme of “fence.” Below those are others I considered, all taken this year.
I have missed several monthly camera club meetings this year, as I tried to get my computer straightened out, worked on client jobs, on taxes and took an actual vacation. Continue reading
I now have Scorpions Big City Nights song stuck in my head. Even though WNC doesn’t have many big cities, and the theme was “night light” not, “bright lights.”
When I saw this theme I thought of a kids night light, Gods night lights with the stars and the moon, and lights at night from man-made objects. Even though I actively shot for this theme (at night) I just didn’t have enough time to go to the meeting this month. I am however making some slow progress on our businesses and personal paperwork and taxes. Hubby, I hope jokingly, threatened to take my cameras away until I got it done and highly suggested I do what I say I am going to do and actually keep up with the paperwork all year long instead of having a years worth in the first quarter.

The first camera club meeting of 2019 features the theme “delicate” with my favorite critiquer, Jeff Miller. I’m looking forward to this one.
Todoodling is a word, right?
