This week was somewhat of a challenge for me. I can already see this is going to stretch my photo taking abilities each week. I’ve noticed that I ALWAYS gravitate toward taking pictures of living things. Whether it be a child, dog, horse, bug, plant, you name it!
This week’s theme is Macro and I’ve come up with something somewhat abstract. Can you guess what this is??
Well, if you guessed an empty jug of sangria on my deck that is sitting out in the rainy/snowy awful weather we’re having, you’d be correct!
Macro photo taking with the iPhone is challenging because it requires you and your subject to be very still. I had several other ideas for this week, but most of my subjects were either moving at their own will or it was too windy outside.
I used Snapseed for this image. I am happy with the various color tones from the greenish blue hue of the glass to the remaining sangria at the bottom of the jug. I also like the pretty rain drops and how crisp they look resting on the glass.
I created another version of this picture, but decided it was over worked and seemed to loose focus and direction. I want the image to be interesting, but not confusing to the eye. I think this one looks crisp and to the point.
If you’d like to join in the fun please check out these blogs for more macro images and the challenge details!
Thanks for looking!
