Same photo, different angles: Theme Thursday

Welcome to the second official week of Theme Thursday here! I’m so happy you’re visiting. Chime in in the combox, tag me on Instagram, or link your blog post up below.

Continuing with our theme of light for this month, I thought “same photo, different angle” would be a helpful practice to take up. Lighting makes ALL the difference in a photo, and standing in one spot just isn’t going to yield a great photo every time. It took me a long time to realize that by moving around a subject I often got better pictures from angles that seemed “wrong.” I distinctly remember the first time I broke the “have the subject look into the light” rule and took a photo directly into the light, and then with the light coming from the right of the photo.  I was astounded how different they looked, and also how interesting.

Theme Thursday 4

This week, after some failed attempts at catching Rosalie in a still position, I went with a still-life.  Here were some of my dinner ingredients for last night:

(All photos f/4.5, 1/160th, ISO200, shot with my nifty-fifty lens)






Which one do you like the best? I think I like the second, third, and fourth, but all for different reasons.

What about yours? Share them in a blog post or post them on Instagram with the (new and improved) hashtag #ThemeThursdayPhotos!

Don’t forget, sweet friends, to visit the other linkers! It’s way more fun to go through this together, don’t you think?

Take a silhouette!  Here’s a helpful tutorial describing the best settings to get a great silhouette.

Theme Thursday Oct Nov


  1. I like the first and last one best. What I want to know is what you made with all that beautiful goodness?

  2. Oooh, Brussels sprouts! Those look lovely, and we haven’t had any yet this fall. I’m going to have to add them to my shopping list.

    If I was going to put one of these on my wall, I’d pick the first or second.

  6. I ALSO want to know what you made… I really like brussels sprouts but so far I’ve only converted one family member to my point of view! The last picture is my favorite 🙂
