52-Week Photo Challenge: Weeks 41 & 42

Week 41 Composition: Color Theory

“Color Theory is a huge part of composition that most photographers don’t explore. So it is time to explore it. Use Color Grading to create an image that looks like it is a still from a movie.”

Forest in fall

I was unsure of what to do for this challenge.  After a little reading up on color grading here is my first attempt.  I enjoyed experimenting with new ways to edit my photographs.  Fall in our forest, my favorite time for walks in nature and time to reflect.

 

Week 42 Inspiration: Work Work Work

“Work, let it inspire you this week.”

Engagement session

This week’s photo challenge arrived at just the right time, my busy season.  Every fall many of my clients wish to have family photos taken.  The weather is cooler.  Sweaters and boots are making their way out.  Cool breezes and the leaves make their gradual change from greens to vibrant colors to finally dropping to the ground.  This photo from a recent shoot represents what work means to me.  Sharing in a young couple’s excitment of engagement and their upcoming wedding.
