Header Challenge:shadows

July 17, 2013

Today's challenge is shadows.  Lew picked the theme for this week. Check out my  pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing  Guy, Katney, Imac and Lew.

This was another crazy-busy week. The wedding that I had been preparing for took place on Sunday.  Now I get to pour through a bazillion images to select and edit and finish the work.  I honestly do not know how long it will take me to get it all done.  I'm guessing two or three weeks.  I was going to have one assistant (Mrs. Craver) to help organize poses and another assistant to shoot photos.  Unexpectedly, my wife overcame her shyness of DSLRs and used my backup Pentax (borrowed) to snap some excellent photographs!  While I formally get credit for today's header, it was technically my wife who pressed the shutter button.

Normally, when I think of our themes, I look for photographs that view the theme from a favorable position.  This was not the case for a wedding shoot.  The strong shadows, seen below the gazebo made it tricky to get a good shot during the actual ceremony.

If you're wondering why I didn't take this picture myself, it's because I'm IN the picture.  You'll find me shooting in stealth mode as unobtrusively as possible between some columns on the bridesmaids' side.

Yea, Chrissy. Good shot my friend!
Craver, I'm using my iPhone to view this at the moment, and it won't let me enlarge the header photo, but 'll be baasaack and view it on my PC. I must see if I can locate the elusive photographer-in-charge. I imagine you will be very busy selecting and editing photos. Those who haven't done this have no idea of the time spent doing it.
As you are working on the photos, enjoy....and take breaks.
So happy that you had great family and friends to help you with the initial task.
High fives to you, my friend!!!

Your wife can give you some serious competition as chief photographer. I did spot you in the photo. This is a wonderful header.

George, I'll have to tell her you said that. :-)

Indeed she got a great shot of the ceremony AND the shadows! I spotted a head with hand near the eyes between the columns.

You are a sneaky one.

Craver: Cool capture at the wedding, glad your wife snapped you in the shadows.

Nice shot, Chrissy! I do like the lattice pattern of shadow. Great job, you wedding-photog duo!!

Carletta said...

Mrs. C. did a wonderful job! Tell her I like the pattern of the shadows.
I found you! I wouldn't have seen you if you hadn't pointed yourself out.

Just a note on my watermark - I wanted something that was me so the heart in the middle is because I'm a Valentine baby. :) Glad you liked it.

Ooooh...I'm at my PC.
I see you! I see you!
(Do I get a prize?)
