Photo Challenge #1-Composition

Here are my pictures for photo challenge #1. This was a challenge for me because it really made me think about what I was going to shoot. While shooting I had to be aware of everything visible in the shot.


I thought feet was the easiest to shoot. I was done with these shots first but I think they ended up being my least creative and interesting even though they are cute! The first one is my little neighbor Frankie. He is just starting to walk but outside he crawls because he can get around faster that way. You can tell by the way his toes are curling that he is after something!
The next one is Henry the guinea pig. When he relaxing he lays on one side and sticks his back foot out. It's really cute!


Now I thought tea was the most challenging subject for me. I don't even drink tea. I did find a coworkers tea stained cup and thought it would be an interesting shot.

The second shot I took some tea (from work) and scattered them. To make the picture more interesting I converted it to "colored pencil"


I had fun with music. I've always loved the way CD's flashed in the sunlight so that's how I came up with this one.

We haven't had our piggy Henry very long now but I have thought about making a black and white scrapbook of him when I first got him. Henry on a piano, checkers board, black and white tiled floor, etc. This picture came to mind right away for music and now I have my first picture for my scrapbook!! Henry liked making piggy music!

NIce job - I really like the way that the colored pencil effect turned out - great comp. with the feet in the grass & the piggy where your subject is not right in the center, I have to remember to do that more!

The tea cup has serious possibilities. And I love the first one for feet.

I love the baby feet crawling away! the teacup is interesting, and the teabags in the packages are very cool! I love the whole idea of a b&w album of Henry this one is a great start! should be a really fun project.
