May Assignment: Faceless

Faceless Photos

For this month's assignment, I thought we'd move our focus away from faces. This can mean any number of types of photography, whether it be some kind of landscape photo or perhaps a macro photo, silhouette, .... really the choices are so wide and varied. I thought it might be a good change of pace for us to think about something other than a head shot or portrait for a month.

Have fun with it!

Best,
GIGi

Here's one I took yesterday... trying to work on some super-soft, razor-thin DOF type shots.

That's beautiful, Tracy! I can definitely tell how thin and delicate the petals are.

Here's a couple silhouettes I took today of the boys.

Thank you both!! Tracy, I love your new shot--I love that delicate color combined with the silvery surface it is lying on--what is that?

I'll add one or two more here since it's the last day of May (already!!)

Amy, that's a cheap silver-coloured (plastic) serving platter. I always like the light and texture it brings, so I sometimes use it for stuff like this.

I LOVE that last shot! So beautiful. Love the mood and composition.

Tracy- Love the composition of that purple flower! It's stunning.

Amy- I love everything about that second one with Eva! She has such pretty curly hair!

Here's one I took of the boys a couple weeks ago and forgot about. I did some heavy pping, but I still really like it.
