2017 Trevor Carpenter PhotoChallenge Week 45: Clear glass with no reflection

Week45-clearglassnoreflection_nmp

A few weeks ago I posted my entry for a new photo challenge I had found. Since then, the challenge has changed names and website addresses. I haven’t missed a week of posting on Facebook, but I haven’t been posting here. I hope to make this a more permanent thing and remember to post here every week as well. So, here’s my entry for this week. The challenge was to take a picture of clear glass with no reflection. My sister gave me this cute glass candy basket.

So my set up was very, very basic. My kitchen table, the light from the window, and a plain, white tea towel to cover the box that made it high enough for better lighting. Not perfect, but very fun.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Crossed Lines

crossed_lines_nmp

The art of photography is the study of lines and curves. We are always looking at how lines and curves affect our image. At how converging lines interact with our main subject or subjects. We can become obsessed with the rule of thirds and where those lines line up (hehehe). So for this week, I want you to find lines that cross. My photo was taken on the Big Island of Hawaii at a black sand beach were we stopped to watch sea turtles and the surf. Walking down to the sandy part of the beach, I found this beautiful spot where the tall, almost-vertical palm tree trunks crossed the horizon and a bridge.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE OR…) OF CROSSING OR CROSSED LINES.

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.
