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.

    Love the action shots! I can’t believe that your KA was spinning when you took the picture. It totally looks stationary. Man, I have camera envy right now!

    Great set, lots of variety! The drinking fountain is beautiful. And Roxy is such a diva! Is your camera a Canon? That’s what I have. You might want to mess around in the “Tv” manual setting to play with shutter speeds…you’ll be able to get some action with your mixer that way. Nice work!

    Steph – it’s a Nikon D40. I definitely need to read the manual to play with the setting more as far as shutter speed goes.

    CB – I know. I kept taking pictures hoping that one would show it in motion. I should have taken it out of child mode and used something else to show a little blur of action. Maybe I’ll try again this weekend.
