scavenger hunt sunday

This week’s scavenger hunt was very challenging for me for 2 reasons: I have very little experience in night photography and ditto for sky scapes. On the other hand, I do have 2 children and they do eat a lot. Interestingly enough, my favourite photos this week turned out to be the ones that posed the biggest challenge (night and sky).

All photos except the children image were taken with my little Nikon P6000. I’m enjoying a little break from the clunky DSLR this week.

1. the 5 senses – I decided to take a picture of my boys lunch plate since eating pretty much covers all the 5 senses. For my boys, the better the presentation, the more likely they will gobble everything up so I try to make their sandwiches interesting visually.

2. child/children – The boys enjoying a bit of iPad time … closely watched by mommy, of course.

3. dining – Our meals have gone to the dogs!

4. night – I set the camera on a little $5 tripod on our glass deck table and used no flash to get this image. I also used the timer to avoid blur caused by my finger pressing down on the trigger.

5. sky – I like this one because, aside from applying an auto tone edit, it’s pretty much a SOOC.

  1. I have to agree that your night and sky shots are my favorite too. You’re such a wonderful photographer that I can’t imagine anything being a challenge for you. Did I see a comment that you weren’t sure how you’d handle tilt-shift? I’m sure you’ll figure it out. 🙂 Have a great week!
