Week 22: Eyes

You know when you get an idea and you try your hardest to create this idea in the real world?  And then it doesn’t work?  I hate that.  But luckily, my subject this week is beautiful – and has very beautiful eyes – so I’m not too worried that my idea didn’t work out.

Here is my eyes:

Week 22: Eyes

Gorgeous, no?  Nicole is another co-worker who is willing to lend me random body parts for photographing.  And her eyes are so pretty.  We tried a few things – different angles, different props – but the blue scarf just made her eyes pop.  Love those eyes.

I believe I’m becoming addicted to photographing faces.  It’s always been challenging to find something I like but I feel like I keep getting lucky lately.  I really think the 50mm f/1.8 lens has helped me move around the subject more.  And of course, I love me some bokeh.  That fixed position lens really makes you workout your brain more in terms of composition.

For next week, the challenge is “lingerie.”  Now… I made this list not thinking about the consequences but please keep it clean.  I’m OK with “sexy” but I don’t want to see nudity.  As in no nips, folks.  The flickr group has a “safe” setting so don’t go buck wild on me.  And don’t forget to check out the flickr pool’s photos or click on the challenger roll – there are some fabulous  “eyes”!

chicalookate - I love reading about challenges other photographers have set for themselves. It is amazing to see how, as a group, they can take a theme can come up with so many varied images. Can’t wait to see what comes next!
