We’re shooting to illustrate two different verses this month, both with a theme of “harvest” (more details about the assignment here). If you live where golden fields of wheat or rye are around, photograph that! That’s what we’re really looking for. But if you’re like me, and the only kind of harvest around is the fruits and vegetables that grow in the backyard garden, well, we might be able to make that work. Here’s a little video about how my assignment shoot went. Hope yours goes better than mine. Smile

Even though I really don’t think the pictures of the gardener in the garden could actually work for this assignment, I just liked the concept and photographed it anyway. Smile

Zucchini is a WV staple, so how could I not photograph that while in a WV garden? It would go over well in a WV calendar, at least. Smile

The cabbages seemed to be more European in flavor. I like how cabbage plants grow in a way that they appear to be “revealing” the edible part inside, which visually illustrates the concept of faith in Hebrews 11:3 as explained in the assignment details.

A garden was the best I could come up with for the demonstration video, but I’ll be traveling through some of the mid-western States over the month of August so I’m going to be keeping an eye out for real harvest photos! Especially at golden hour. But, ha, I don’t know if I’d be able to even identify a wheat field if I saw one! Let alone, when harvest time is. If anyone wants to educate me on these things, please feel free to comment below. Smile

Regardless of how you shoot this assignment, I challenge you to shoot it at a different time of day than when is convenient. In this this month’s new, membership-exclusive Premium Training, Exploring Different Times of Day, learn about what makes the five distinct times of day unique and how, photographically, you can make the most of each one.
