The freshness of this picture is superb. I love the chipped nail polish and the crisp reflection. It evokes summer play and fun.

Transparency, freshness and calmness are the words that pop in my head when I see this crisp clean photo of a beautiful beach, the sky and the surf.

This one reminds me of my childhood in the beach and how fun it was playing with my sister in the surf.
Amazing back lit photo where you can feel the energy and enthusiasm of the children even without seeing their faces.

Love the boats. The turquoise water and the background mountains instantly send me to a tropical island on holidays, even if for just a second. A girl can dream, right?!

Friday’s Pictures: Macro Abstract

Friday’s Pictures is a recurring topic that features excellent photos by several photo artists and it revolves around a theme each week.

This week the theme is Macro Photography so extreme that it becomes abstract.

Love the shapes and the neon color contrast with the black background.

It’s part of a flower, that much I can tell. Love the composition and bright colors.

The fractal texture does it for me. It’s amazing the things we usually miss with our bare eyes.

Super Macro Eye

This macro photo of the human eye has great colors and light.

Something that we can learn from these photos: attention to detail, awareness of graphic composition and very good lighting make great photos.

Love how this familiar place in Paris (Saint-Lazare) looks so different seen by someone else. I also love the blue monotone and the movement.

Self Portraits

Maybe it’s because I’m a bit of a narcissist, maybe it’s because of my old compulsion to document everything (you can read more about that here) or maybe because I have no one else taking my picture but I really like self portraits.

I like to take them and I enjoy looking at other people’s too. Creative people always take the best self portraits.

To take a good self portrait you have to be comfortable with your camera and with yourself. To do that you need to take a lot of them. Just pick up your camera and point it at yourself or at any reflecting surface and then SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT!

You can also use a tripod and a timer for a more polished portrait.

Try different camera angles (above your head, at eye level, etc.) different facial expressions (silly ones will make you laugh and you can just erase them later if you don’t like them), strange places, with your friends, different reflective surfaces, etc..

Express your mood. Say something about yourself with it. Have fun.

Love the little rabbit running in the field, the monotone colors, the textures and the shallow depth of field.
