Week 24: Inspiration: Who inspires you
Inspiration comes from many places. Tell us about who inspires you.
My students and colleagues inspire me.
They inspire me to be creative,
To have fun,
To try new things,
And to strive for excellence.
This particular photo is a crazy creation created through a multiplicity of fun apps and techniques
Just to prove my point.

Week 23: Composition: Leading Lines
The early bird gets the worm.
Follow that yummy worm to the beak of the beautiful raven.
The project indicated we should use strong leading lines in food photography.
It didn’t say the food had to be for humans. Imagine how yummy it must taste.
Well ok, time for truth the food really is for humans - it’s a gummy worm.
Don’t worry I didn’t give it to a bird to eat...the bird is as fake as the worm.

Week 17: Composition: Balance
Balanced composition is pretty straightforward,
unless you are trying to shoot in the "Accidental Renaissance" style.
So shoot a balanced image in the Accidental Renaissance style...
and so I did (at least I think I did).
We were out at paint night with wonderful waiter and a beautiful restaurant.
I decided to be brave. I pulled out my photography business card and asked him to pose.
He obliged very willingly and did exactly what I asked of him with such graciousness it was wonderful.

Week 15: Inspiration: Anonymous
We are all anonymous.
Do we really know each other?
Do we really know ourselves?
Do we really our hearts?
Do we really know who we put our faith in?
As we enter the holiest week of our religious year we reflect on who we are;
and who Jesus is to us.

Week 14: Composition: Center Frame Portrait

Week 12: Inspiration: Trash
Trash is your inspiration. Tell a story or create something beautiful.
Well I don't know that a sweet potato being peeled is beautiful;
but it sure is yummy once it's cooked.

Week 11: Composition: Fill the Frame
The Breaking in of Spring
The mighty power of the river ice flow breaking up in the early spring.
As I was watching people ice fishing it led me to wonder....
how do they know where to go to not break through the ice.
Using Fill the Frame is a great way to isolate your subject and create interest in your photo.
Can you do it with only one color in the frame? Fill the Frame with one colour.

Week 6: Inspiration: #NoFilter
Easy to be inspired by this cute little house finch in my snowy backyard
on a week when there is no limit on what to shoot this week.
The image was required to be pure with no filters, presets or other edits.
Basic exposure corrections only this week;
and that is what you see here.
A straight out of the camera shot of a beautiful little bird in the stark white snowy winter.

Week 5: Composition: Symmetry Landscape
Use Symmetry in a Landscape to create a new viewpoint for this week's image.
When it is minus 40 out for days at a time it is difficult to get a landscape picture.
I settled for this.
Take my word for it; there is an exact amount of snow on each pine needle to make this photo symetrical. 😂
Honestly though I think the true symmetry in this photo comes from the clouds sweeping down
To the middle where the hill meets it to sweep up to the sky.

Nothing makes a heart warm more than seeing an amazing momma taking special care of her babe.
