san diego family photographer | 26 weeks of inspiration {1} view from up here

As photographers, we are always looking for ways to challenge ourselves.  This year I am taking on an exciting new challenge, a 26 week project.  It is similar to the 52 week project most of you are familiar with, except this year we are working on techniques along with our themes.  Our themes for our 26 week project will be more thought provoking, so it will be fun to see the different interpretations.  I am working along with 11 other AMAZING photographers, 6 of my favorite photographers from my last group and 6 crazy talented news ones, who will be challenging me as the year goes on.  Each month we will have a different technique we are working on, and each week we will have a new theme.

For the month of January, our technique is unique lighting and our theme is “view from up here”.  After you see my picture, be sure to continue clicking through the different photographers links so you can see the complete circle.   Be sure to come back in 2 weeks to see our next theme, you don’t want to miss it!

Last weekend Brooks and I took off to the beach for our last day of Christmas vacation to look for ‘unique lighting’ and try to shoot something for our theme today, ‘view from up here’.  I love using light and often look for backlight for my images.  On this day, I tried for something different, I waited for the sun to go down and looked for more unique lighting … shadows and different light sources.  I ended up really enjoying the challenge and will continue to look for unique lighting in my sessions.

With this one, I know I’m only ‘slightly’ above him … but it’s my ‘view from up here’ and ‘unique lighting’.

And by now it was completely dark out so we wandered around to find a different light source.

It was fun to explore and look for something different.  I appreciate this challenge so much and look forward to the months ahead.

Please continue on with Aubry Startin | Phoenix Family and Wedding Photographer.
