This week for my photography challenge over at Scrapbook.com we were challenged to use these elements in our photographs.
Of course I can't do a photo post without a picture of my little boy. =) I liked how his bright orange shirt popped against the green and brown in the background. (SS 1/250 sec., f-stop 5.6, ISO 400, 28-135 mm lens at 90 mm)
For angles (and some texture) I took this picture of some shrubs my husband just planted. I was playing around with my 50 mm lens and wanted to get a good depth of field. (SS 1/4000 sec., f-stop 1.8, ISO 400, 50mm lens, Aperture Priority setting)
I thought this picture was pretty cool for lines and texture. You can see on the right that our grass has turned a lovely brown shade. =) That's what happens when you don't get any rain for a month. (SS 1/500 sec., f-stop 4, ISO 400, 50mm lens)
Edited: Per Cherie's suggestion, I've cropped the last picture down to show just the drain cover. I also converted it to black and white but I don't think it's too obvious. =) Thanks for the suggestion, Cherie!
