Today’s post is for Project 52, a weekly blog project that I am working on with several other talented photographers whom I’ve come to know and adore over the past year. In this project, we concentrate on light and spend several weeks exploring an overarching theme. Today we begin a new theme: Playing with Artificial Light.
My first post is from a sunrise shoot that I did on Saturday morning with some local photographers. This image was taken before the sun rose, where you can see that artificial lights can be quite beautiful. Indeed, the artificial lights were much prettier than the natural ones that morning, since the Seattle sunrise mostly involved the sky going from deep blue to dark gray to light gray. Sigh. I suppose I will have to try again in the summer.
Please continue along our creative blog circle to see what my lovely friend Jessie Wixon has posted. Jessie lives in NYC and takes absolutely stunning photos of her gorgeous family. Please click HERE to see Jessie’s first play on artificial light.
And if you are interested, here are a few more shots from the sunrise in Seattle. The first was taken with a super wide-angle lens, and the last with a Lensbaby:
Wow, you made a gray Seattle “dawn” look awesome!
Beautiful, Kami! Looks like you found the perfect spot for skyline photos!
Beautiful, Kami. I especially love the focus in the last one. I love the wide open views!
This is an amazing location! The lights in the first one are incredible. I love how it’s hard to tell whether it is dawn or dusk.
Kami, what a beautiful series of images! I really like the last one made with the Lensbaby.
wow…this is stunning-the skyline is beautiful….I love this series…
Gorgeous skyline! Beautifully done!
I love all of these, Kami – what a fun and creative take on this month’s theme!
These are beautiful! I love the deep blue sky of the rising sun and the contrast with the lights of the city. And the wide angle is gorgeous.
These are stunning, Kami! I especially love how you used the Lensbaby on the last one!!
