“Magic is something you make.”

Autumn is a magical time with nature’s colorful beauty all around us. Our photography circle’s theme this month was to purposely blur our subject. As photographers, we strive for sharp, in-focus images so it was challenging and fun to think out of the box for this theme. I spray painted some leaves gold and used them as the starting off point for my blurred images.

  1. […] Our lives have been so crazy so I have been MIA for the last two months. It feels great to be back, but this theme was quite a challenge. I have never done anything like this before, which is going to shoot with the intention of getting out of focus images. I knew that because my image would be out of focus, I needed a simple backdrop with negative space. I begged my 7 year old to be my model this month and she finally agreed. The light was literally on the horizon when we started so we only had like 5 minutes to make this work. I got some shots of her just standing, but I wasn’t loving them. She loves to twirl around and so I asked her to twirl and twirl for me. She had so much fun. The wind was blowing and I love how her long hair looks in these shots. I must say I loved what I was able to capture. This has probably been one of my most favorites this year! Do not forget, there are other fabulous photographers who are doing the same theme. Be sure to check them out. Up next is  the amazing Melissa Deakin Photography | Williamsville, NY Photographer. […]
