Today, share an image that creates a sense of mystery. Intrigue us with uncertainty.
Today’s Tip: To stretch yourself, manipulate the light available to you to create a particular effect — use it to cast shadows and highlights to create a moody image. Work with natural light, or find an artificial light source
When you’re lost and forever feeling too deeply
Open your eyes to a world of beautiful wonder,
The greatest treasures are found
On a journey in which those feelings are followed.
Follow your own path
Today, let’s go big. Whether inside or outside, photograph something of massive size. Feel free to interpret big in your own way, and get creative with your shot. Capture all or just part of the subject. Place it in the foreground so it takes up the entire frame. Or shoot it from afar so it appears smaller — yet still prominent.
My interpretation of big.
The moon was so bright and big that it was hard to miss. I took the first shot with my iPhone and then raced to my car to get my Canon and try to focus on the moon.
There’s are my results.
I wish I had a zoom lens… 🙂
It’s time to take a break from our daily themes, so enjoy your days off. Use the weekend to catch up, tackle themes for which you didn’t have photos, or practice techniques you’ve learned.
I hope you aren’t tired of my beach pictures and you like my composition experiment.
Oh, and my poem. 🙂
A gull riding the gusts of wind
A boat sailing across the sea
Running wild into the ocean
Just letting it be
Daring to be yourself no matter what others may think
Living life openly without looking back
What is your idea of bliss? Is it an image of your family, laughing at the dinner table? A state of total relaxation, while lying on the beach? Your latest painting, drying on the canvas?
Bliss: complete happiness, great joy, paradise, or heaven.
How could I choose a single moment of bliss?
“I could no sooner choose a favorite star in the heavens.”
A refreshing ocean breeze;
A warm sunshine;
A drop of rain;
A wave of joy;
A captivating sunset
A glimmering moon;
A friend’s shoulder;
A child’s laughter;
A beautiful smile;
A soft whisper;
A lover’s kiss…
I simply cannot choose just one
Please don’t ask me to.
We have different relationships to and stories about water: how it has saved or defeated us. How it reminds us of family vacations, outdoor adventures, or the hot summers of our childhood. How it might symbolize a place we’ve left behind, or a location we dream to go.
Numb my pain
Let me drown
In your vastness
Let me sink
To the bottom of the ocean
Let me experience
All that you have to offer
