Project 52: Playing with Creative Settings and Light (4)

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 love.  In this project, we concentrate on light and spend each month exploring an overarching theme.  This month marks week 51 and we are on our *last* theme of the year.  As our last theme, we have decided to play a bit free and loose and to focus on using light creatively.  This may mean different things to each of us, and to each photograph, but expect to see sunflare and bokeh, movement and motion blur, and more.

I am posting two shots this week, since we are almost to the very end!  The first is a “selfie.”  I have been taking a Fine Art photography class for the last few weeks and tried to do some more serious self-portraits for that class.  I felt entirely uncomfortable – I didn’t know how to pose or where to look.  Avery came upstairs while the shutter was clicking away – and suddenly things were much easier and felt much more me.  My second shot is an experimentation with an out-of-focus shot.
