Theme Thursday: Advent, week 2

Ah the irony.  I’ve spent hours taking photos and editing them in Photoshop this week, but as they’re for a fellow blogger (bloggess?) they’re not mine to share.  I’ll share them here when she posts her Christmas pictures, though.  🙂

In the meantime, here is my meager contribution to the #HolyLens group this week: an accidentally apropos photo of a sunset.


No filter needed.

(I only realized later that this was Monday’s photo and {roof} was the theme.)

Let’s discuss next month’s prompts, shall we? I’d like to go back to the idea of working on specific photography skills, if that’s something you all enjoy.  I was thinking Composition for January, but the only theme I’ve come up with is Rule of Thirds.  Hit me with your best composition skills/tips and I’ll make a schedule for next month.

ALSO, Advent Week 4 will be posted on Tuesday, December 22 to avoid messing with your Christmas plans.  🙂

Finally, I PROMISE that by this weekend I’ll catch up with all your recent link-ups.  I’m so grateful to those of you who link-up, and I want to be able to take time to look at each one and comment thoughtfully and then I fall asleep 5 minutes after putting the baby to bed and that’s out the window in a hot minute. Wake up, Micaela!!!

  1. Some composition things could be: leading lines, framing, changing perspective (like shoot from below or above), negative space.
    A book I really like is “capture the moment” by Sarah Wilkerson, simple photography skills to practice, with examples (it’s a photography book, so I’m sure there’s a price tag, but maybe you can get it at the library)
    And the website there’s a lot there, but using the search bar works pretty well.

  3. I’ve slacked off on my Theme Thursdays and am excited for the new month! I like the prompts that force me to work on my photography skills. I’ve been so lazy about just using the auto mode. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
