Header Challenge:fruit

July 10, 2013

Today'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.

Photographing a wedding is an honor indeed!
I cannot IMAGINE doing that, my dear friend. What a privilege. You know that I am already praying that all photographs are splendid ones, all moments of love are beautifully captured, and that you are not stressed and can enjoy every moment yourself. Good thinking to have someone to back you up. I wouldn't have thought of that. Great thinking!!
"Lord, be with this couple as they begin their life together as husband and wife. Be with Craver as he captures the moments of reverence and joy. Thank You for hearing my prayer, Lord...and for the privilege of approaching You with these requests. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen. "
Beautiful header, Craver. Love the composition and the lighting. Beautiful!!
