P52 weeks 3 and 4 update

Week 3’s theme was white/negative space. I submitted this one from my frosty post.

Earlier this week I was surprised to see my frosty photos in Sweet Violet photography’s featured photos. Thanks to Faith for including me. She chose this photo but mentioned that there were lots of beautiful photos in the post. The photo she chose was one that I nearly didn’t include in the post. They were both taken very quickly and I felt the focus was off but in the end I included them as I liked the photos but wished they were a bit sharper.

Week 4’s theme is sparkle or unique perspective. Yesterday I went on a street safari photography course in Manchester. We spent 3 hours walking round Manchester trying to capture street photography. I learnt a few new tricks from the tutor including photographing reflections in puddles like this one. I have plenty more photos to edit so you’ll be seeing more of them later but this one is my favorite so far.

P52 week 2 – open

Week 2’s prompt was responsibility or open. I chose open and ended up with this photo of an open book. Not the most imaginative interpretation of the prompt but I happy with the end result. I seem to love black and white photos at the moment. I love how it can transform the most mundane photos.

Project 52, week 1

I’ve decided to undertake a project 52 this year. I’m hoping that by aiming for one good photo a week instead of one photo a day this photography project will be less of a chore than a 365. I also hope to share other photos with you and enter other blog hops but p52 will be my main goal with anything else being a bonus. I’ll be joining in with Paint the moon: lets do 52 as Annie is offering 2 prompts each week to choose between (I need some inspiration for my weekly photo but I often struggle with prompts so I’m hoping that out of the two I’ll be able to think of something).

For week one the prompts were Sharing or All natural. I selected sharing. This is a photo of my husband and I sharing homemade focaccia (recipe to be published on purely food shortly) and a selection of anti-pasta. The photo of near enough straight out camera with a few tweaks in Adobe camera raw.
