Feb. 6 & 7th's Photo Blog...

Thursday, February 07, 2013

Good afternoon everyone! Hope you all are doing well!
We are suppose to get 15-25 inches of snow tomorrow and Saturday! That's just crazy! But then again I do live in New England and that is just a normal Winter here... hee hee. We've been spoiled these past years with little snow, and even this season has been easy, so can we really complain?!!? SURE, hee hee! I hope anyone in this storm's path, stays safe!

Okay, Photo time...
Yesterday's word was: Backlit
Not sure if I have anything for this?!!?? Here's a professional definition of the word....
"Backlighting (Backlit) can create amazing light in your photos. Spot meter for their faces and shoot.

Want a silhouette instead? With the light behind them shoot metering for the sky or something other than your subject. Your subject will be underexposed, creating a silhouette."

So I found this picture...

I took this picture when we went Blueberry picking last year. As my hubby and the cubs pick the blueberries, I look for photo moments. Mostly of them picking, but every once in a while you can see some of my pictures without cubs or PapaBear in them... hee hee. So this is a picture of some blueberries.

I think after doing all these Photo blogs, I'm learning and looking forward to doing my photos in new ways (wink). I'll always have my family in them, but I'll stop and enjoy other sights too. The main reason of me taking my photos are always to have the pictures, the memories of our life with our friends and family. And when I'm gone, hopefully my cubs will look back and enjoy these memories... okay, even when they get older, guess I don't have to be "gone" for them to enjoy them... hee hee.

Today's Photo words: Use your senses

What?!!? I'm guessing this means when I look at the picture I'm thinking of the sense that might of been used?!!? I don't know. This is what I came up with...

This is a picture of one of my Cub's Guinea Pigs, Twix. In the picture he is enjoying the wonderfully grown back yard grass.

It was a perfect July day... sun shining, grass bright green! The lawn recently watered, so just the right amount of liquid in each blade of grass. As Twixie looked around, it was like his "plate" went on forever. It was an "all you could eat" buffet! He looks like he's in heaven! Eat and enjoy Twix!

Hee hee...
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Oh, and thanks for all the well wishes. Last night I was finally able to sleep some... more then 3 hours! It feels like forever since I got a good nights rest. But with this new medicine, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel of this cold being done! Thanks again!!

    Sure wish we could take some of your snow! It was like spring here today, which is nice, but we haven't had much snow here at all which probably means more bugs this summer! I bet you develop your new photo techniques soon and wil have beautifully backlit photos to share! Like the idea of a pic of blueberries. Love, love, love the photo of Twixie! I can just imagine all of my senses being engaged by color and the imagine feel of the damp grass, the sounds of the beautiful outddoors and if I were a guinea pig, then the awesome tastes to explore in the yard! Enjoying your photo blogs alot! Thanks.

    We are getting the snow too, starting as rain so we might not get quite as much, but close. The thing they are worried about is power because of high winds.

    I bet you can create a new photo op that is truly backlit! Love the pic of Twix! sounds like perfection and anyone who can view it will use all their senses to enjoy it.... Sight, the memory of the feel of grass and wet grass, the smell of grass and if a guinea pig is looking, then they will think taste! Glad you are starting to feel better! I can't even imagine that much snow! I dbout we ever got that much down here!
