Richard and I had a great time visiting this park on our way between Sidney, NE and Caldwell, ID.

Photos for the Fair!

Last year was the first in many years that I didn’t enter some photos at the Ozark Empire Fair. This year I’ve got them all printed, matted, and ready for Richard to take to the fair on Saturday while Mom and I are at the agility trial (thanks Honey!).

Week 20 – Composition: From Below

“Get down low; below 2 feet, and change your perspective. Look out or look up.”

This one seemed hard for me, but I was able to find two neat items to photo “from below” while at Purina Farms for a dog agility trial.

Very cool light at the Purina Arena in Gray Summit, MO

The same light viewed from directly below.

These huge fans (actually named “Big Ass Fans”) made great models for this theme. I tried two different shutter speeds to get the best effect. This one is at ISO 100, 18 mm, f/3.5, 1/320 sec

This one is at ISO 100, 18 mm, f/3.5, 1/15 sec

Week 19 – Vision: Edge Cut Sun

“Having an edge cut through the sun looks nice, or having the sun rising over a line or diagonal within the photo. Stop down the aperture to create a starburst.”

This was another busy week with travels and visiting my son and his lovely family. This is actually one of my favorite subjects, and I did get these few nice shots during a sunset in New Jersey. I didn’t fully follow the instructions by having an edge cut through the sun, but I did get the starburst.

I love all the little stars in this shot of the sunset reflecting in the water.

Week 18 – Wildcard: Photographer’s Choice

“Capture an image on your terms; who, what, where, when, why, how … it’s all up to you. Caveat: You must tell us your intent.”

This week I was really busy at the NARM Board meeting in Rockville, Maryland. However, I did take time one morning to take more lensball photos! My intent was to photo the buildings using my lensball and learning more about how to get the best from the lensball.

This photo started out as a mistake to take it through the screen. But the effect turned out great!

Week 17 – Creative: Humor

“Laughter is the best medicine. Make us laugh.”

Yesterday I found this really unique carrot in the bag and showed it to Richard. He suggested we make a “man” out of it. Then I remembered this week’s photography theme is “humor” so I felt this would fit perfectly. Richard built Selfie Stan and got him all set up for me and also ran the lighting. We don’t have the best lighting, and I didn’t really like the shadows, but then I figured, hey, he’s taking a selfie in the bathroom mirror, of course there will be awful shadows! It’s a selfie! So, with the addition of an iPhone image and a flash flare (I built the latter myself in Photoshop!), and a poem also written by me, I have a completed “humor” image!

Week 16 – Technical: Portrait Lighting

“Whether Butterfly, Rembrandt, Split, or Loop Lighting, choose the technique which best flatters your subject.”

This one was tough for me as I don’t have any knowledge of nor equipment for studio lighting. So, I did the best I could with what I had. The picture of Dolly was on a north balcony with no direct lighting, but I positioned her toward what light there was. The pictures of the hippo statue (don’t you love it?!) were taken in the house. The first shot was in the kitchen with a south window and a filter between the hippo and the window to soften the light. The second hippo photo was from our living room. I positioned the hippo in direct south window light with the filter between the hippo and the light. In order for me to get into the best position, one of our house plants was in the way. However, when I saw the shot I felt it added to the photo, so didn’t move it!
