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 45 – “Sloth” images!
CHRIS: For 11 days, I was on a cruise and I ate ridiculous amounts of food; yet the elevator was still my best friend…
SARAH: The struggle is real.
AUTUMN: being a sloth is always a bad thing…. but is it really? look how cute…..
Here are our Week 46 – “Shadows v Reflections” images!
CHRIS: The drama of enveloping clouds versus the calm of a glacier.
SARAH: Perspective changes everything.
AUTUMN: shadows amaze me- the way they can change a room, a person, a landscape, and make you notice things you never would otherwise.
Here are our Week 47 – “Hero” images!
CHRIS: My parents are incredible. They immigrated from Taiwan in the last 60s with very little money, they have since put three children through graduate school, have been blessed with 5 grandchildren and have allowed me to become the man that I am today. They are the definition of heroes.
SARAH: This incredible heroine is my grandmother. Anyone who can successfully raise 7 children, manage a family farm, and battle Alzheimer’s with a witty sense of humor is a hero in my book.
AUTUMN: have you been to a hibachi grill? these people are heroes. their skill set is amazing
