Ahhh…Friday. The kids have the day off, I had a studio session this morning…it’s somewhat sunny outside with blue skies and white puffy clouds, it’s a good day.
Here is the ninth installment of my 4 the love of focus project 52 myworldyourworld group (nine weeks?? wow, time flies). We have been posting every week our two images side by side in a diptych as shown below. It has been great to see everyone’s take on the themes each week and to see how differently each person views a topic. If you have time, be sure to check out the 4 the love of focus blog to see the other images that have been posted as well as some great member spotlights and other fun tips and insights for photographers.
This week our creative prompt was motion. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what to do for this…and then one night this week the boys and I were playing in the studio. They started jumping and doing their karate kicks and I got this shot below and Jarrod thought it was hysterical (the outtakes are even funnier). And yes, they are in their pjs…but I have permission as after my oldest saw the images he asked “Can these go on your blog, Mom??” Yes, yes they can 🙂 So for me…frozen motion is what we get 🙂
I love how my partner Kristyn LaPres, a fantastic Grand Rapids wedding and newborn photographer captured the pinwheel so perfectly in her shot with the stillness of the grass around it and I love the comparison of the frozen motion and the blurred motion of our two images.
