The first picture of the Bible, I took on a sunny day in the shade.
The other pictures I took of my sister memorizing her Bible verses at golden hour. It was hard not to get the pictures grainy.
Mr. Staddon, I like the lighting and crispness on your pictures.
Looking forward to who is the winner!

Here are some photos of one of my sisters, Jemima🙂
Here in New Zealand it’s mid-winter, so all of the deciduous trees are bare!!
One of the photos has a pink ‘sunspot’, if that is the right term?? I also got a few other shots with lots of ‘sunspots’. Is that a good effect, or one to be avoided?

Beautiful job, everyone! You’re all doing such a great job at making a Quiet Time look pleasant and appealing!
@laura-aome, that pink spot would technically be called “lens flare”! It’s caused by the sun coming directly into the lens. Lens flare isn’t always a bad thing and can be used artistically, but in this particular case I find it more a distraction than a positive element. 🙂 To avoid lens flare, you just need the front of your lens to be shaded in one way or the other. Either by stepping into shade yourself, or by using a lens hood, casting a shadow over your lens with your other hand, tilting the lens so the sun isn’t coming into it directly, adjusting your position so the subject is blocking the sun, or things like that!July 22, 2022 at 8:12 pm #71479Laura LaneParticipant
Thank you for that, Lydia! I’ll definitely try shading the lens next time😊.July 22, 2022 at 10:17 pm #71484Hannah F.Participant
@lenspirationlydia, your photos are beautiful because you had great lighting, great subject, and love the creative foreground blurs. My favorites from your photos are the first and last photos! Wonderful!
It looks like I won’t be able to participate in this assignment (aka, photo challenges/competitions), because I do not have any willing subjects (despite having 6 siblings), I have been overloaded with summer school and then summer activities (work and volunteering), and alas the time that I was ready to shoot, the days were overcast, the lighting pitiful, and the weather so hot up past 106˚F !!! That’s typical summer weather in North Texas. Weather in December happens to be in 80s ;). Anyway, I look forward to watching the webinar recording.
Great work everyone!July 23, 2022 at 4:52 pm #71498Allison EstabrookParticipantJuly 23, 2022 at 4:55 pm #71504Allison EstabrookParticipantJuly 23, 2022 at 5:36 pm #71511Jemima Janse van RensburgParticipant
Hi everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the weekend! I had to squeeze the photoshoot in between my horse riding lesson and lunch yesterday, so the lighting is VERY bad!
@esther Everything is going well over here in South Africa. We are in the peek of the citrus season and very busy!🍊🍋 Everyone is calm and working, and there are no locusts (thankfully)!🙄😁
@laura-aome It’s so neat that you are from New Zealand! It is mid winter over here in South Africa too, and I also used my sister!😁😉
