A Photo a Week Challenge: Teasing

teasing_nmp

Playful teasing can lead to some really fun photos. These siblings were having fun and goofing off while their sister and her new husband were having their formal photos taken. (I took candids at the ceremony and then covered the reception.) Despite the look on his face, this brother and sister get along very well and really do love each other very much, as you can tell from the picture I snapped right after the first one.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR THREE…) THAT SHOWS OR EMBODIES FRIENDLY, LIGHT-HEARTED TEASING.

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.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Blue or Purple Flowers

In August, I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding reception that featured a cake with this amazing cascade of blue-purple roses.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Wood

Living in Utah, which has been classified as a desert, you’d think that we’d have a lack of trees and wooded areas. However, the Rocky and Uinta Mountains in northern Utah and the various Plateaus in southern Utah give Utahans a plethora of pine and leafy foliage of the tall variety to gaze upon. The first image was taken on the grounds of Southern Utah University outside the world famous (and soon to be demolished) Adams Theatre at the Utah Shakespearean Festival. The other images are from previous posts (most taken in Utah).

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

Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Trees

Los Angeles Temple tree

We were in Los Angeles last week, and had the chance to walk around the LDS Los Angeles Temple. We spotted this tree and couldn’t resist taking its picture.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Fill the Frame

Sometimes, a subject is so striking you want it to be the only thing in your image. I usually handle this with an extremely close-up, as in this week’s image. But you can also do it with large subjects, such as a mountain or building.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR MORE PHOTOS WHERE THE SUBJECT FILLS THE FRAME.

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.
