I Spy with my Eye… Photo Week!

Two of the most creative people in the world (Amy and Steph) came up with the idea of Photo Week. First, we had Color Week, hosted by Amy. Then Steph hosted Auto-week. Both proved to be challenging and fun learning experiences. I have definitely learned a lot about my camera and myself as a photographer through those first two weeks of Photo Week. I also really enjoyed seeing everyone else’s interpretation of the themes.

And now, it’s my turn to host Photo Week! I was very excited when Steph passed the torch on to me. I thought long and hard about the theme… And now, I present to you Senses Week. That’s right! We’re going to enjoy our 5 sense through photography.

Monday (10/6) – Sight
Tuesday (10/7) – Taste
Wednesday (10/8) – Sound
Thursday (10/9) – Smell
Friday (10/10) – Touch

Photo Week has very few rules. The point is to get out there and use your camera, and observe the world around more than you usually do. To participate, simply take pictures any time this week (starting today). Just be sure to post your pictures on the appropriate day. If you can’t participate every day, that’s fine too. And don’t worry about how advanced of a camera you have. Or how advanced your photography skills are. Just get out there and experiment and see how it goes.

    I am totally addicted to learning anything/everything about cameras now. I blame you! haha. I think macro is my favorite setting. Do you have a macro lens or do you use your kit lens+macro setting? Thanks for putting up with all my questions!

    Ha. Sorry or You’re Welcome 🙂 I used the Macro setting with the kit lens. I think for the middle picture I used my 55-200 lens. The others are with the 18-55 lens.

    I find myself not using Macro as much as I thought I would. Since the flash goes up. Based on what I learned yesterday I might start using Landscape for food pictures.

    Probably 90% of the time, I just use the Auto setting or Auto w/o flash and let the camera do all the work. Sometimes I use Shutter priority or Aperture priority. I’m glad this week’s photo week is causing me to try out all the different options.

    Jen! I took the same picture of the seed on a dogwood tree, mine didn’t turn out that great though… We are always on the same wave length. Nice job!

    Thanks for the insight, Jen! I don’t know squat about taking pictures, so I appreciate your words of wisdom. That checkers set is so cool. Great angle!

    I’m a big fan of the checkers shot as well!
