52 Weeks of Awesomeness continues!

The challenge for Week 9 of 52 Weeks of Awesomeness is “Shoes”.

freshly pickled moccasins shoes

Paxton’s first pair of shoes were these adorable Freshly Picked moccasins purchased by Brisa. Initially, I was like, why would Paxton wear moccasins? We don’t live in the tundra!!! Yes, I’m incredibly fashionable, obviously. But, after we received them, I realized how cute they are! I still can’t believe our little dude fit in these shoes. They are so tiny! I also love how pristine his shoes are. Funny that he has shoes even though he’s never taken a step!

I wanted to create a commercial product look to show the stark difference in size, cleanliness and ridiculousness between my shoe and Paxton’s. By positioning the shoes on 13”x19” photo paper and using our whitefish painted walls, I was able to create a white seamless look. Then, I shot at night in the pitch black so that my flash was the only light source. I used an on camera flash with a MagBounce from MagMod because I wanted the light to drop off fairly quickly. In contrast to my previous #52WoA images, it only took 11 images to create this image! #StoryBehindTheImage

100mm | ISO 200 | f/4.5 | 1/50 | Feel free to ask any questions!

The challenge for Week 10 of 52 Weeks of Awesomeness is “Mom”! Excited to find your submissions via #52WoA on social media!

After a 4 year hiatus, the La Brisa weekly photography challenge, 52 Weeks of Awesomeness, is back!!! As a photographer, sometimes you need to work on things outside of your normal day-to-day life and this weekly photography challenge is designed to utilize your personal experiences, your unique perspective and newly learned photography techniques to improve your photos. Weekly for the next year, I will be sharing my images with you. You’ll find my weekly photography challenge images on the La Brisa blog, instagram.com/labrisaphoto and facebook.com/LaBrisaPhotography!

52 Weeks of Awesomeness is for any photography enthusiasts of all skill levels and equipment. The goal is to have fun and learn a little bit more about photography along the way.

Each week, there is a new challenge to photograph based on one of three categories:

Personal – the best photographers use their own experiences to create unique photographs!
Perspective – view everyday objects in a different way to inspire your creativity!
Technique – learn various photography methods to make your images more dynamic and interesting!

For those of you interested in participating, PLEASE join me in this weekly photography challenge! 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 everyone can view each other’s photos!
