Again this month I am joining Donna's Personal Photo Challenge, and this month the focus is light.
I am fascinated by how much light affects a photograph. Over the years of taking photos for my blog, I have learned the best times of day to shoot pictures in the different rooms of my house. I love to take pictures as natural light shines on the subject. I have also learned (partly through this month's challenge) that the automatic settings on my camera are not always what I need to be the master of my photographs. So I have determined that one of my goals for the new year will be to learn to shoot in manual. (You heard me, Donna. Hold me to it!)
All of these photos were taken with my Canon Rebel T3.
I liked the way the morning light was falling across the counter top, so I plopped a few candy canes in my little crock of silver spoons and grabbed this shot.
I tried to capture a silhouette effect with my tiny sheep and wooden house on the windowsill.
I think this one is my favorite. Maybe because I love this old crock, but I was taken with how the sunlight highlighted it.
Thank you, Donna, for the challenge! I am always inspired to see photography in a new light (no pun intended) when I participate!
