Macro {Emily}

Here is my Macro.

Macro was hard for me...I don't think I get the idea behind Macro.
Still fun though!!

The Creative Focus

Okay girls, how are you all liking the set up of the blog? Do you like the monthly assignments, or is that too much or too little? Also, we need to make a list of everyone so we can all take turns choosing the topics. Who would like to pick for December? Do you guys want to choose your own months, or should I randomly assign your months and we'll follow that pattern? I have had so much fun already, and I'm so excited about all the participation we've had so far! I'd love to hear your comments and any ideas you might have!

Macro (Lisa)

I have been a little macro crazy. I need to just post and be done with this. It was fun though.

P.S. I think we should do shadows and or reflections at one point... whenever.

Macro (Bethany)

I would have liked to get outside and play around with macro a little more, but my kiddos are sick and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. Oh well.

Macro (Jessica)

I failed at getting out to take fall photos, but I did try for a macro shot. I don't have a macro lens, so this is the best I could do. I found this washed up little strip of coconut on a beach in Singapore last week. At first glance, it looked like trash. But close up, the coconut is dusted in salt from the ocean.

this may be a little premature, but here are my macros.

i was experimenting with textures for these ones.

fall photos {hayley}

I was worried I had waited too long to get some good fall shots... but as it turns out, it is still BEAUTIFUL out there! Oh how I love the fall.
Everyone's photos have been incredible. I enjoy seeing all the different perspectives.
Like Jess, I haven't experimented with landscape photography much (I am too enthralled with my kids), but I am excited to get better at this!

up close & personal

i realize that not everyone has posted their fall photos, but i just thought i would give you all a heads up on what topic i have chosen for november. i struggled a bit to decide what to do, but eventually i settled on macro.

i'm not comfortable with this type of photography, which has a lot to do with why i chose it. i really like to challenge myself with new photography topics. that's how we improve, right?

feel free to interpret this "assignment" however you'd like. the point is to take pictures of something that might not be very interesting if you were to just take a picture of it as a whole. get in close. crop it. show detail.

it can be of a flower, a leaf, a book, a pencil, anything!

happy shooting.
