This week’s theme was to convey the thought of motion through photography. This week Posh Pets did something a little different to showcase that we do not just photograph dogs and cats.
Fortunately for me, this week I met Peck. During his “portrait session” Peck definitely spent some time checking me (and his own reflection!) out in his aquarium. I love how this photo turned out! The colours are fantastic – his orange body fairly jumps out against the blue of the water. You can also see the motion of his delicate fins as they moved in the water – soft and billowy. These subtle movements were further amplified in his reflection. To tell you the truth, I think he liked being the centre of attention!
So, now please click through to Steph Skardal and see her take on motion. You can go all the way around the blog until you end up here with Posh Pets and Peck.
Hard to believe that another week has slipped by! But that is a good thing in Toronto – it means we are inching ever closer to the nicer weather. It also means we had another theme to work with at Posh Pets for our on-going Project 52. This week’s theme was blur.
If you spend any time with photographers, you will come to realize that they are generally obsessed with “sharpness”. They can wax poetic about how “sharp” a lens is, the “sweet spot” of any particular lens and how to properly “sharpen” a file for print. But, this week we needed to produce blur. And, more importantly, to ensure that it was not mistaken for the dreaded out-of-focus image. It was also important for us that the blur be created in-camera and not as part of some manipulation done with Photoshop.
So here’s our take on blur. Thankfully, my subject was patient. You should see the outtakes! (You are welcome to post your guesses on how we created the blur!)
Next, take a trip a little to our south to New Jersey to see Stacey Axelrod of Wacky Dog Photo’s image. Please start here and follow the circle all around. When you get back, you can post your guess!
