July 10, 2013Today's challenge is fruit. Imac picked the theme for this week. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac and Lew.
The files have been jam-packed and I need to clear out space for new photos. In addition, I was honored to have been asked to photograph a wedding this weekend, so I will need abundant space for the hundreds of pictures I plan to shoot. Besides the shots I will take myself, I have acquired the services of a talented friend to be my 2nd photographer. That of course means lots more pictures. So right now the archives are tucked away in an external hard drive. Consequently, I will keep things simple with this one photo for the header.
I just threw together what we had on hand. The header shot is the choice I was happiest with, as I did some experimentation last week. For some reason, I really, really wanted to include the avocado in the shot of fruit. It was quite black! After a few different ideas, I think I came up with a way to get some of that bumpy texture to show up on the avocado.
Please keep me in your prayers this weekend. I would love to be able to capture well the most essential images for the bride and groom this weekend, but we will be on a very tight schedule, and I will need to work super-efficiently. That's not the way I usually do things. I normally take my sweet o'l time, and the good stuff does not usually happen in the first couple of takes.
