2013 CM Monthly Challenge – Shooting through glass

This is the fourth month for the Clickin Moms monthly challenge. The ladies in the group are so talented and I have really enjoyed viewing their photos every month.  I’m amazed at their creativity.  The challenges has really made me think of photography in different ways and are really challenging my though process.  This month’s challenge was shooting through glass.  In the past I would never thought of taking a portrait through a window.  When I saw this challenge my mind went blank.  I check out one of the posts on the Clickin Moms forum and took a few ideas from there.  I even managed to get a self portrait in there.

After viewing this month’s images please keep the circle going and head over to Bianca’s blog and don’t forget to come back for next month’s challenge when we take on beautiful ugly…. That is going to be interesting.

2013 CM Monthly Challenge – Close Up Portaiture

Last year I joined a group of ladies from ClickinMoms in a photography blog circle monthly challenge.  This year, that challenge continues with new topics every month that will push some of us (especially me) outside of our comfort zone.  This supports my goal this year is to become a better photographer.

This month we start with close up portraiture.  I so wish I had a macro lens for this challenge, but I don’t so I used my Canon 50mm and my Tamron 28-75mm to capture my daughter looking at her Kindle fire and preparing to go outside during the cold snap we last weekend.

Thanks for visiting this month.  Please keep the circle going and head over to Rachel’s blog.  Don’t forget to come back next month as we take on food photography.
