As a photographer, sometimes you need to work on things outside of your normal day-to-day life and this project is going to help us (and you) challenge, grow and creatively develop your photography as a whole. Weekly for the next year, we will be creating images and we call it 52 Weeks of Awesomeness (52WoA)!
Here are our Week 12 – “SMOKE VS FIRE” images!
CHRIS: For my smoke image, I lit candles behind and in front of the camera, set up a flash directly behind the camera, blew out the candles, used a flashlight to lit the camera so my own camera could focus, removed the flashlight and then took the photo. I did that plus or minus 15 times to create this image. For my fire image, I made a tepee out of matches, focused one camera on the tepee, then lit the tepee and used a macro lens to shoot through a viewfinder of the camera that was focused on the tepee.
SARAH: This week’s challenge resulted in me lighting several things on fire and smoking myself out of my kitchen. None of those images turned out all that great so then I shot a candle. Groundbreaking concept, I know…
AUTUMN: This is a picture of fire.
This is a picture of smoke.
For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE join us! The more the merrier! You definitely do not need to be a professional photographer, this is something you can easily do with your point and shoot, cell phone, ipad, etc. You can comment with a link to your image here on our blog or on our La Brisa fan page or you can tag La Brisa Photography in your image on your own FB page or use the hashtag #52WoA on twitter and/or instagram that way we can share your efforts with everyone else!
