52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 7 | Portrait: Faceless
“WEEK 7: Portrait: Faceless: Tell someone’s story without showing their face.”
I just wanted to start this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 7 by saying that first: it’s by far the most difficult one yet. And second; I’ve been doing this challenge wrong on purpose.
And what I mean by this is that this challenge is meant for making that ONE photo that represents what the challenge is about that week. And I upload many, not just one. But I do that because I feel short by just uploading one. I don’t want to limit myself creatively. So if one week I just make 1 photo work, then I only upload that one. If I like 50, then 50. (Hard, but it’s a hypothetical).
My first DSLR as I stated in another blog post where I talk about my gear; was a Nikon. Then I moved to Fuji and then I landed with Canon (and I’m planning on staying because I’m loving it).
Talking strictly about my Canon gear. I used to have only one lens; Canon’s 50mm 1.4.
Nowadays it’s a different story because I have the best boyfriend in the world. And after hearing me complaining non-stop that my 50mm 1.4 was too tight for certain situations and that I really needed a 35mm. He gave me for my 25th birthday back in August; a Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART lens. He’s a keeper, I KNOW!
52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 6 | Artistic: Candy
“WEEK 6: Artistic: Candy: Your artistic interpretation this week should be inspired by something sweet. Therefore, a great chance to play with macro photography.”
So problem number 1: I don’t have a macro lens. And my 50mm will definitely not focus near enough. So let’s just keep this week’s 52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 6 to artistic and candy and sweet.
Since I don’t have a macro lens to play with, and the main subject is artistic. I didn’t want to take random pictures of something sweet. And it was really hard coming up with an artistic approach to it. Furthermore, in all of the Artistic section of this challenge, you can take the theme literally or figuratively. And I chose the later.
So here is my “artistic” take on candy = the summer skies. Which by the colors and the clouds look like cotton candy!
52-Week Photo Challenge: Week 5 | Landscape: Black and White
“WEEK 4: Landscape: Black and White: Look for a scene with great contrast that will make a great black and white.”
It’s been almost 2 months since I came back from a 6-day trip to Berlin. I will explain more on Wednesday’s post. And I’ll share some photos from the trip there! Stay tuned because I made that post a little bit different than usual, so please let me know if you’ve liked it when you read it in the comments.
