A Photo a Week Challenge: Layering

Great Salt Lake sunset

Layering objects in your photograph can add more depth and interest to the composition of your image. Sometimes, moving slightly right or left, up or down can pull in an additional element or two that help make the picture pop more. It can take some practice getting the framing just right, and you have to be careful that your autofocus doesn’t take over and change the main subject of your image.

This photo is from the LDS Bountiful Temple looking across the Great Salt Lake.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO THAT ARE HAVE LAYERING OF SOME KIND.

Have fun experimenting with all sorts of layers and angle.  Then blog them and post a link to your masterpieces here.

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.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Street Life

Street life

I took this shot in London outside of Covent Gardens. I love the colorful buildings and window displays, especially on this very cold and rainy March day.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Pink and Gold

Gold and pink by a fountainPink and gold always make me think of little girls and fancy dresses. This sweetie was playing in the fountain while we waited for the bride and groom to come out for pictures. I love how her curls glow as much as the sheen on her party dress.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO WITH PINK AND GOLD AS EITHER THE MAIN OR ACCENT COLORS.

Look for the pink and gold around you, or use your photo editing software to enhance or create images that represent pink and gold to you.  Then blog them and post a link to your masterpieces here.
