A Photo a Week Challenge: Surprise!

Surprise!

Unexpected shots can be some of the funnest, most memorable images we capture as photographers. Even though I was doing a formal shooting of this little cutie, he was frequently surprised by the flash into opening up his eyes wide and giving that perfect “What, you’re taking a picture of me?” look.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF SOME OF SOMEONE OR SOMETHING CAUGHT IN AN UNEXPECTED OR UNPREPARED MOMENT.

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″ tag.

3. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

Baby R

I had the privilege of photographing this little guy. You wouldn’t know it from looking at him, but he’s only two months old (big boy). He was so much fun to photograph. He loved the flash and was a perfect angel through the entire shoot. Thanks to Baby R’s Mom and Dad for letting me have this much fun.

A Photo a Week Challenge: The Eyes Have It

Baby eyesI don’t know what it is about baby eyes, but they sure can melt your heart. This little cutie showed up at a baby shower a few months ago, and I couldn’t resist taking a few pictures of him. He was so easy-going and a natural when the camera pointed his way.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF SOME OF THE EYES IN YOUR LIFE.

Eyes are one of the first things we notice about other people, and they convey so much that we don’t say out loud. Blog an image of your favorite eyes and post a link to your find here.
