A Photo a Week Challenge: Brighten Up Your Day

Bright Baby C

As we in the northern hemisphere make our way out of the darkness of winter, I thought it would be fun to reminisce about the warmth and brightness of the summer sun. I played around in PhotoShop to lighten and warm up this image of Baby C. I hope you like the results and spend a few minutes basking in the glow of a late summer afternoon.


Whether your picture is naturally bright from the sun or other lighting, or you create the brightness with post-processing, have fun and get creative.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ and “Photo a Week” tags.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.
