Saturday's post offered us six photography prompts. I was excited to see where they would take my pages! Rather than using the prompts to inspire new photos, I used them to help me choose which photo to use on a page. Let's see what happened.
1. Shoot the Whole and a Detail
This prompt was based upon Sue's page with her lovely "FunFlowers." I think pages like this are pretty cool. It gives you a chance to see the environment and also the details. I thought a picture of me with one of my darling pies would be a fun option for the whole/closeup juxtaposition.
2. Shoot From Behind
Francine's gorgeous layout showed her little man on a horse. It was a lovely example of how your focal point doesn't need a smile! I wanted a similarly lovely photo. Mine is much less beautiful, but it sure did make me smile!. My tiny happily running down the hallway on the final day of school!
3. From the Top
Speaking of perspective, the third photography prompt was to take a photo from the top, as Lisa did on her layout. I have the perfect photo for this one!
On a lovely spring evening I was out with my little ladies. They were doing cartwheels as they normally do. Then they lay on the grass laughing and giggling. And I got a lovely picture from above. Smiles are so different from this angle. It's a curious thing.
4. Shooting Nature on Aperture Priority
This prompt came from Cristina's layout. When I read the prompt I immediately thought about a picture I had taken of some trees that line the parking lot at my son's high school. I hadn't scrapbooked it yet, but was so excited to do so. I like how it ended up!
There are two additional prompts that you can do, too!
5. Put together a layout with photos taken on different days. CLICK through your photos and pick for a theme.
6. CLICK a photo of something you love in your community.
And that brings us to the end of our photo prompts from Saturday's post. I hope that you will find them useful for inspiring new photos or, like I did, helpful for sifting through your folders!
Thank you, always, for stopping by!
