I can’t believe that October is almost over! Anyone else feel like it was just the first week of fall?
The last couple of prompts in the October were definitely more difficult for me. Or maybe it was just the bokeh shot that through me for a loop…
Day 22: Bokeh
Creating a bokeh effect was the most difficult photo I’ve attempted to date. I still don’t think I quite got it, but my patience was waning. This is definitely a skill I’d love to master in the future!
Day 23: Dark
I took this photograph in Charlottesville at Jefferson Vineyards. After a tasting, we sat on the lawn and enjoyed a bottle of wine and the sunset. It was so peaceful and serene.
Day 24: Black and White
Because y’all know I can’t go a week or so without sneaking a dog photo onto the blog, Jetta was my model. With her jet black hair and white muzzle, she was the perfect subject for a black and white.
Day 25: Bright
I’ve been a bit disappointed at the lack of changing leaves on our tree-lined street. (Why is our block randomly so green?!) So when I drove through the Fan area of Richmond and came across some gorgeous orange and yellow leaves I had to snap a photo.
Day 26: Old
The Sir Christopher Wren Building at the College of William and Mary is one of the oldest buildings in the country and also happens to be where Aaron and I got married! I can’t express how much I love this old building.
*Day 27: New
This mural is fairly new to the Canal Walk of Richmond and was painted by various artists last spring. I never tire of walking by these and discovering little details I had previously missed.
Day 28: Hard
A friend of mine actually snapped these for me, but they are so fitting for the prompt. Taking photos with my husband is nearly impossible. We’re forever laughing at each other, and we always end up with a goofy series like the ones below. One acceptable photo out of five is pretty spot on.
What do you find to be the most difficult part of photography? Do you have any bokeh tips for a newbie?
*Edited to add day 27. Somehow I skipped over it! Oops. 🙂
