CM blog challenge

:: beautiful ugly :: | monthly challenge by maibritt

The CM challenge this month was shooting ::beautiful ugly:: which I interpreted to be finding beauty in something, you would normally perceive as ugly.

It didn't take me long to think of dead flowers, as I had shot those for a challenge like this before. I love finding the beauty in a dead flower. 

I have always wanted to try to work with textures and imediately knew, that I wanted to incorporate that into this challenge as well to enhance the dead flower.

This is my first try at working with textures, so please don't be too hard on me.

This was os much fun. I can't wait to start working on next month's challenge.

Now please follow the circle and go see what the talented Lori Zornes of Lori Zornes Photography is up to :o)


:: shooting through glass :: by maibritt

I just joined this fun blog circle with some amazing ladies from clickin' moms. Each month we get a new prompt for a new challenge. On the 2nd day of the month we all post our interpretations of the given theme on our individual blogs and then link to the next amazing photographer in the circle.

Make sure to follow the circle all the way through to get to see all the inspirering entries.

I am honored to be a part of this circle and hope that I can live up to it :o) I sure will try.

This month the challenge was :: shooting through glass :: I had the hardest time coming up with something as I am in a fog these days... I just can't seem to pick up the camera... but here goes... This image is by all means not technical perfect, out of focus and there is too much grain. (It was also one of the first times I used my new lens the "lensbaby composer Pro with the sweet 35 optic". I can already tell that we are going to start a love affair...)

But I took this challenge to try getting out of the box. I will use this challenge to try to break the rules and the chains I have put myself in. I will try to release my innner passion and artist.

Here's to trying new things!!!
