Week 5: Rule of Thirds

Welcome to week five of my Project 52: 2019 Edition. If you’d like to see the prompts that I’m using, read this post.

Anyway, as promised, I’m showing the Straight Out of Camera {SOOC} image too, so you can see what I started with and how it ended.

This was taken outside in my backyard, late evening, overcast skies. The Hubs was working on the RV and Squeekerz was begging to go back inside. He’s a diva and won’t sit on the grass or the concrete. Camping with him is a lot of fun. That being said, I can’t wait for us to get back on the road…

Straightened, cropped, and color muted in Lightroom

Rotated and watermarked in PicMonkey

Sometimes I look an image and I think, gosh, this would look better flipped. So it was with these leaves pushing through the fence between our yard and our neighbor’s yard. I placed the camera right up against the fence and angled it downward, so that the lens was above the leaves and I snapped. Fortunately, the Nikon D7500 has a rotating screen, so I wasn’t shooting blind like I used to do.

I also tend to shoot wide open because I’m a sucker for that creamy bokeh.

If you’re on Instagram, give me a yell and let me know you’re there.

Happy Snapping,

Daenel T {Living Outside the Stacks}
