Low angle this week! This is more about seeing the world through a new setting so I worked with my macro angle for the most part. I really enjoyed this week. I liked getting low and trying to see my subjects through a more creative angle. I liked how getting low puts the sky in the background and how dramatic each shadow became.
The first set of photos I took were taken in my grandma’s back yard during my kids egg hunt this last weekend. My grandma has a beautiful yard full of flowers and multiple gardens. Each one has a different feel. A cherry blossom tree surrounded, tulips, delicate flowers encircling a small wooden wagon. We take our family photos here every other year and the look is always completely different.
Another thing I enjoyed about the flowers was how much they changed when you got up close. The grape hyacinth became a thicket forest with a path through it. And I definitely have been reading too much Lord of the Rings.
The second set of photos were taken at the park this week. It was a really cloudy today and I loved the being part of the foreground. The colors weren’t muted at all when you really looked at the park, the colors actually popped against the ever changing clouds.
Also, trying to capture my kids playing from this angle was really fun. They loved having me stand at the end of slides to catch them or peeking through the grates before showing off.
