This is Alicia's Photo Challenge. She is a blogger that I follow regularly and is teaching us (followers) some different techniques on taking pictures.
Here is Photo Challenge #1: Lighting
The Challenge: Practicing taking pictures using the light around you. Notice the difference it makes in a photo when you take them in direct sunlight vs. filtered sunlight (i.e. overcast, window or in the shade). If you have a source of controlled light, play with it. Use it to highlight the focus of your image. Lighting is the key to an image, so we're starting here.
I am behind on this by a week...so you will see photo challenge #2 tomorrow as well...trying to catch up and improve my picture taking skills.
