I recently joined a fabulous group of photographers who challenge themselves each month with creative photography techniques and themes. They then create a blog circle showing off their best work. This is my first blog with them, and I am super excited to be apart of this group!
December's theme is Negative Space. This technique uses the blank space in the image to emphasize the subject(s). With it being December, of course I had to incorporate a couple of Christmas-y photos. There's also a few of my older travel pictures and shots from recents shoots.
Hover over the images below for details on the location or event, and also check out San Diego Wedding Photographer Lauren Nygard's blog, too. Enjoy, and Happy New Year!
This is one of my favorite shots from the Dia de Los Muertos Festival in Old Town San Diego. Taken just this past November.
I used a light box to back light this Christmas ornament.
My pretty and pink engagement ring.
One of my favorite shots from a family portrait session in November. The overcast sky served as a great, solid background. Taken in Fort Worth, TX.
I took this at the Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden in Balboa Park in San Diego. It was a rainy day, so there were some great droplets on the rose petals.
An older shot from my first trip to Las Vegas. The world's largest thermometer in Baker, CA. Beautiful white orchids.
