For this weekend, I came up with a project for Christmas. My friend likes to get a photo of herself with her dog (Olly) to use as a Christmas card for friends and family – it has become a tradition for her. Also, we went away for my friend’s birthday a few months ago and decided to have a go at making “sparkler photos” like the one below.
My friend missed out on her “sparkler shot”, so I thought this would be a nice substitute. I think they fit in with the composition theme, but what I realised is that I need some help with my background blur. My vision was for large, blurred lights behind her (see my header image) but we only managed a slight blur. I still really like the pictures, but I’m looking forward to learning more. We even used the timer to get a couple with me and Gidget as well 🙂
I also spotted this Jacaranda tree, I love these trees but have never photographed them before. I love the colour, especially against the blue of the sky. When I see these trees, I know that Summer is here, regardless of what month it is!
Am really looking forward to this week’s challenges!
