3 Perspectives: Through the Lens – White

4 Flares 4 Flares ×

through the lens buttonAlison and Greta has a one-year photography project that we’re all participating in – in hopes of improving and sharing “non-cameraphone” photography skills.  #ThroughTheLensThursday motivates us to take out our DSLRs and capture better pictures.

This week, I’ve been at my mom’s due to back pain, and I forgot my DSLR at home.  I was very tempted to use my Galaxy S3′s camera, but I didn’t.  So I reached for the next non-cameraphone alternative – my mom’s “point-and-shoot” NIKON CoolPix L105.  Of course, as soon as I started walking around with the camera, my two girls wanted to do it too.

I thought, “Why not?  It’ll be interesting to see what they see.”  So to the 9 year old, I gave my mom’s smaller SONY CyberShot.  And to the 4 year old, I handed her “Little Red” (my CANON PowerShot ELPH 300HS).  I said, “find WHITE things and shoot!”


All the pics below are unedited, but the collages wre made on PicMonkey.  ENJOY!

  1. I love that your kids got in on the action! They got some great shots and so did you. I love the dandelions.

  2. I love that your girls got in the action! Their shots are really good!

    I like the shoes in yours. It’s not perfectly white, but the white stands out, you know what I mean?

    • Thanks, Alison.The girls did have fun. And I like the shoes too. It was just a little tricky finding the right interesting angle. Can’t wait for next week!

  3. Wow! Giving it to the kids to play along too. I love that.
    I’m a pro photographer but I don’t really critique very often! Who am I to judge someone else’s vision? I think they’re all lovely to look at together. And apart.

  4. your 9 year old captured an awesome close up of that flower!! way to go.
    and I don’t know why, but the 4 year old shot of the white shoes on the ground just speaks to me for some reason. perhaps it reminds me of my own in summer.
    LOVE the dandelion pics!! cannot wait for summer to try and shoot one. not that I want a ton of dandelions on my lawn — I’d like to find them Elsewhere! LOL
