Enjoy the colorful things I found this week. No time for explanations - I'm in the middle of baking a double batch of chocolate chip oatmeal cookies.

I'm posting these as part of a monthly photography challenge called MCP Project 12.
These water drops show my resolutions of :
what happens when the water drops (very appropriate during our non-stop heavy rains),
trying new things with my photography this year,
taking more photos for me,
using my macro lens and
learning more about off camera lighting
(here I used a continuous source instead of my new flash, which will give me an excuse to try this again),

Snow in the Willamette Valley is pretty rare, but we got some just in time for the Cold challenge. The girls were so excited to play outside before school, but sad that it had all melted by the time school was over.

I was thinking I should use some great photo for the Rule of Thirds assignment, but I got tired of looking decided to use something recent and amusing.
Here is the before. I wasn't really thinking about composition, but concentrating on focusing the "eyes" and how my new flash was working.
Here is the after. I put her "eyes" on the top horizontal third, the right eye on the right vertical third and the space on the left takes up about a third.
OK, if anyone can guess what these the "eyes" are, I'll send you a free note card of your choice.
Hint: The two halves used to be one.

so I can say Happy New Year! I really dropped off the blogosphere last summer and only posted a couple of times. The fall was super busy with Sydney in Soccer, Kyla doing cross country and both girls at Kung-Fu twice a week. Then I ended up doing a lot of photos for other people along with putting some of my work in local shops. It has been fun, but kept me busy.
One project I got to work on with another photographer and mom was a photo booth for the holiday bazaar at our school. It was fun to try out the studio setting with professional lighting. I made the family take two minutes out of their lives without getting dressed up or even fixing hair to get a family photo and well, here we are.
Thanks Brenna King for all your expertise, equipment and time!
