The tree project favourites

Last week Jen and I started a new photo project – painting with light. My photos for this week will be up at 3 pm CET. But before I leave our previous project of trees behind I’d like to sum it up with my personal favourite photos from those 8 weeks. It was a funFortsätt läsa ”The tree project favourites”

The tree project 8 – thoughtfulness

We had a different theme for Jen’s and my tree project this week. We thought we should challenge ourselves with an emotional theme. For me this is very difficult and I was kind of dreading this even though I came up with the theme. The easy way out would be to take a photo of treesFortsätt läsa ”The tree project 8 – thoughtfulness”

The tree project 7 – trees in winter

I was planning to get out to take photos for Jen’s and my tree project this evening after I came home from my trip but I got caught up with work so those plans had to go. So for this week’s theme – trees in winter – I go back to old photos. I tookFortsätt läsa ”The tree project 7 – trees in winter”

The tree project 5 – backlight

Well, as you will have noticed as a recurring theme this week on the blog – lack of time and photo opportunities have made this blog a little less creative this week and more about everyday stuff.

Tree project 3 – black and white texture

Time has not allowed me to go out to take more photos so I have to make do with some ”left-overs” from last time. This means I am not too happy about these. But as this creative journey partly for me is to learn to try and experiment and fail – this entry is an exersice in that. The themeFortsätt läsa ”Tree project 3 – black and white texture”

Texture – the tree project

Yesterday was one of those perfect winter days.  I was a bit late for my little photography excursion so I missed a lot of light. But I did catch the amazing winter sunset. The air was completely still and the sky was cloud-free. The sun was just about to set and cast long dark shadowsFortsätt läsa ”Texture – the tree project”

Tree project 1

Happy New Year! 🙂 I was planning to write a resume of 2015 today for the English part of the blog but I won’t have time so I will put that up on Tuesday. What I will do is to present the two photos I got to take for Jen’s and my tree project’s firstFortsätt läsa ”Tree project 1”
