April 26th spotlight photos

Sweets,
what makes my mouth water.



While I am a long way from being a really good photographer, doing the spotlight post has added to my skills at identifying good shots.
When I first began I had no knowledge of rule of thirds, bokeh etc.
I was told to pick what appealed to me.
Now I realize I am looking at photos in a different way.
Thanks to Rebecca for her patient and exemplary way of introducing new skills to us. 


This week I spotlight

Jama's  great example of
bokeh.
The macro of the serving of brownie makes my mouth water as it draws my attention to the ingredients of the goodie.


I am not sure what rule this indicates but the position of Kara's sweet Joey in this photo makes me want to join in his laughter while playing with someone he cares for.
Maybe even kiss his sweet cheeks, if he would let me.
Very creative Kara


This shot of Jerilyn's lemon cookies applies to the rule of thirds, I think. 
Please correct me if I am wrong someone.
It give an asymmetrical look to the photo that catches the eye.


Of course anything chocolate catches the eye but I am working with another blog on photography
and this month we are looking at 
minimalism,
simplicity
.
Ruth's shot demonstrates that to me.

Dawn Trender's shot of Lindl's chocolate
again shows the ingredients of the goodie which makes one's mouth water to look at it.
The composition has color, light, shading and texture.

Please, folks do not take my word for my explanations of these photos as gospel.

It only helps me in being able to verbalize why I like a photograph.

Next week our theme is machinery and Pauline you are up for spotlighting.

  4. Thanks for highlighting my pile of chocolate chips; they don't look near as inviting as the other goodies and how fun that someone put in a photo of a child.

  5. Thank you for highlighting our little Joey. He always has such a wonderful time playing with his dad and as you can see by the kisses his dad sure loves him!
