3/52 | Food

Saturday, January 21, 2012

This week's theme: food. And grapefruit was an easy choice for me. I'll explain why later ;) You would think that photographing a fruit, or any food for that matter, should be easier than photographing wild toddlers, but it certainly isn't for me. That's part of what I'm loving about this challenge, though. It's encouraging me to try some different things, and whether they are successful or not, I'm trying and learning, which is always fun :)

2/52 | UP

Friday, January 13, 2012

This week's theme was UP. So one sunny morning, while my kids were jumping on the bed, I ran for the camera.  E surprised me with the air he caught. I guess his gymnastics classes must be working for him. And you see the little guy in the back? That's what happens when I let my kids choose their own outfits. Gosh I love these boys!

1/52 | Breakfast

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

I decided to join a project 52 group this year. What's that you ask? It's a group of photographers, and each week there is a theme assigned. We all take a photo to go along with the theme and post it to share. It's meant to keep us inspired and thinking creatively. It will be no small miracle if I actually complete all 52 weeks. I mean, I will absolutely complete all 52 weeks. On time. I will! I will!

This week's theme - breakfast. Because my main interest is portraiture, my initial thought was to get a photo of one of my boys eating breakfast in all of their messy-faced glory. But instead I decided to take the opportunity to use my macro lens, which I have yet to master. I thought this turned out kind of nice.

And I have to give a big shout out to my boy Ethan, who saw me struggling setting up (food stylist I am not) and came up with this idea for me :)

If you think these muffins look yummy, here's the recipe
