Hello SC friends!! Kelly here to share with you a week full of photo prompts. Everybody gets lazy with photos from time to time (photographers included! ;), so it's always fun to have a prompt to get the creative juices going again. :)
#1 Action...catch somebody in full on action! Action shots are always fun to see afterwards. (small tip: set your focus mode to AI Servo if you're using a DSLR...it works great at getting a sharp photo of a moving subject.)
#2 Sunshine...whether you're able to catch a little sun flare like I did here with this photo of Jackson or if it's just your kids outside enjoying the warm Spring temps, hopefully you'll be able to find some sunshine this week :)
#3 Perspective...photos from straight in front of your subject are great, but often great photographs are when you shoot from a different perspective. Try shooting from above or below instead for an interesting composition.
#4 Background...try using a new background of some sort. Put up a fun piece of fabric or try out a new spot you've been wanting to photograph.
#5 No Faces...a photo can say a lot even if nobody is really "IN" the photo. For example, this shot of Brady I took at the beach a couple of weeks ago....he didn't even know I was taking the photo and his face isn't showing, but it definitely screams "fun at the beach". :)
#6 Detail...when I'm taking a series of photos, I love to take a zoomed in detail shot. For best results, use a low aperture setting to make your object really stand out against the shallow depth of field.
#7 Silly...Take a silly shot! These are sometimes my favorites, because it's just my kids being kids. Have fun with it and they will too! :)
I hope you've enjoyed these...now go out and shoot away and have fun with it!! Oh and link me up here if you play along and post to your blog or the gallery...I would love to see!
