This challenge is suppose to encourage you to use an object as your focal point and inspiration! Composition, focal points and framing can really make the difference in whether an ordinary everyday object could even be interesting to photograph or to even look at.
So I am going to tell you the story about this photo that I am entering for this Week’s Photo Challenge. I love to hang my laundry outside during the warmer months in Michigan. As a challenge to myself, I decided to see if I could photograph clothes pins! To make it a little more interesting, I hung my colorful neoprene lunch bags on the line with the clothes pins. I was just looking to see if I could make it look interesting enough to capture someone’s eye! Anyways, I like the photos…
Weekly Photo Challenge: Object
Sometimes while photographing a sports game, I will get a little sidetracked and photograph something other than the game! I usually try to make it something challenging like a juxtaposition which is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast.”
One way I have found to capture a juxtaposition during a basketball game (actually during warm ups) is to capture the basketball as it comes thru the hoop and net. For me it is more of a comparison of technique, focus, position and timing. The shear timing alone can be extremely tricky but always such a delight when I capture that perfect moment in time!
Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition
Martha & Ben are my children and Jake & Maddie belong to my brother, Bill. This picture was taken towards the end of the summer 2012, in Union City, Michigan for my Mom’s birthday. She had spent a ton of time over the summer babysitting Jake & Maddie while Martha & Ben were constantly stopping over to visit or to eat! What an appropriate way to end the summer and give my Mom a birthday present that she definitely did not have!!!!!!

Here is the picture from the very top of this post. Ben is slightly tall and almost didn’t fit within the frame of this photo!
The women’s hurdles had just finished with an amazing young lady from Athens winning. Now the gun has gone off and the boys are leaving their blocks. I cannot believe the adrenaline rush that I am experiencing let alone the runners! I am moving, backing up trying not to trip over my own feet. As my heart is racing, I get set and I start taking more pictures. Here is what I captured…
Congratulations, Jesse Anderson from Union City took first place at his home track invitational!
I chose the first picture for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning because being a sports photographer I have captured several beginnings of races, games, matches and competitions… and I think this is my favorite beginnings to a race that I have photographed so far. Char
