I took this photo for a school assignment asking for a photograph that conveys mood.

Photo Friday: Not Having It

June 17, 2016

Last Sunday marked another year of documenting the Old Port Festival.  Besides photos of food, entertainment, and merchants, I enjoyed photographing the visitors, some in costume, and some not in costume.  I even found Obi Wan walking around.

Out of all the photos of people, I found one particular shot to be especially compelling.  It was towards the end, and I stopped to take a breather on a grass mound, with another photographer.  In all directions there was a sea of people; no one seeming to stand out.  From around the corner of one of the buildings, a man walked with his daughter on his shoulders, holding a balloon, and looking miserable.  I had no idea if her mood had to do with the noise, the crowds, or just hurt feet, but her position, and expression made her This week’s shot of the week.

Before I forget about it, she was the only one looking in the camera’s direction.

Photo Friday: Adding Drama with Clouds

May 1, 2015

Today’s picture is devoted to clouds.  Clouds can add drama, mood, and can help lead your eyes in a certain direction.  It can make an ordinary picture unique, and no matter how many times you take the same subject, you will never get the same picture thanks to clouds.  So, if you’re the type who waits for a sunny day to take out the camera, don’t.  You’ll get more interesting shots if you just include clouds.
