Triu mph comes in all shapes and sizes:
Today’s Tip: Triumph usually denotes drama of some sort, no matter whether it’s big or small. Playing with contrast is a great way to enhance your photos for a more dramatic effect.
Drama in these two photos shows how an early
misty morning looked on yesterday.
Looks as if taken in black and white-
not at all was full color in landscape.

Little bit more zoomed in
Triumph for me because I was early enough to take these lovely photos.
Double can be interpreted in many ways.
Yesterday I took photos of a spider’s web with dewdrops on the threads.
The threads can also be seen as double
parallel next to each other.
Today’s Tip: To make sure your edge packs a punch, use a photo editing tool to check the alignment and adjust the image, if needed, so that your edge is perfectly straight.
Taking photos through glass gives a different way of showing objects or gives an interesting point of view of the object.

Today’s Tip: Get close to your subject — either use the zoom function in your camera, if it has one, or physically move closer to it.
This is my
Trompie my TREASURE
I was standing below him.
Lighting isn’t that good but it still shows him watching me.

I practiced some after sunset photos.
This is the photo I have taken.
The TV antenna and power pole are spoiling the photo.
Landscape before crop
I used http://www.picmonkey.com/
to crop the photo. I think it looks much better.
What do you think?

Today’s Tip: Don’t just point and shoot. Observe your scene before pressing the shutter, considering how all the elements in the frame interact with one another. Make an object appear larger through a ground-level POV. Place two things side by side in an unexpected way.

Our lives are made up of big events and tiny moments. Ultimately, life is fleeting, and oftentimes it’s these small moments, this
motion, that we love to document.
A MOMENT IN TIME I’LL NEVER FORGET!

This is heaven!
Monochrome is my favorite way of photographing.
Today’s Tip: As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But let’s not forget , which can be very dramatic! Black, white, gray, and shades in between interact in the frame in dynamic ways. black and white, or monochrome

Monochrome can be very dramatic!
Today, pay attention to how color affects your images. Experiment with one color, and think about how to feature it prominently.
Today’s Tip: As you train your eye to look for color, keep it simple:
Choose one bold color against a neutral background, instead of several colors competing for attention in a scene.
Look for a strong color within a basic composition of uncomplicated lines — your pop of color will stand out more.
Continue to experiment with light and POV as you shoot color-as-subject — the color may transform as you move.
Don’t ignore soft, pastel shades — colors like mint and pink can make statements, too.
Juxtapose pastels with black and darker shades.
Blue and pastel pink
Soft pink brightens up the blue giving the windows and reflection a sparkle.
Yellow spots and bright orange
