Photo Blogging Challenge (October 2015): Closeup
Did you get close to something this month?
Or did you look at this theme in a total different way?
The thing about a theme like this is that there are many different ways to look at things. You could be close to things in many different ways.
So how did you interpret it?
I went with the literal way of looking at things. I got pretty close to things this month. I also got a new lens (Canon’s 24mm pancake… rented, then bought… a cheap and awesome lens. It has some macro features), which allowed me to dive into this theme.
This was kind of a cool topic, in the end. I like closing in on things when I shoot them. Sometimes it comes out better than others. I like the five I chose for this month and I had one or two others (foliage) that I had to push aside, unfortunately.
I’m excited to see how others tackled this project.
Anyway, enough of my blabbing. Here are my five photos for the month of October!
1. A cold one
Earlier this month, I went to one of the local festivals held in my area each fall. I don’t always go, but it was a perfect day and I met up with an old friend. It’s nice to enjoy a fine local (Ommegang) beer and catch up on things.
I took advantage of a day off and a warm fall day and hit a local state park for some photos. Looks like some nature was enjoying the warmth, too.
3. Championship gold
I am working on a project for an independent wrestling federation and took some images of their championship belts. I thought closing in on the title would be pretty cool.
How can I go a month without Cam? He was a hungry boy on this day… so a little closer look at that!
The fall is here and quickly turning. Most leaves are off trees. I liked the look of this one when I saw it … holding on as long as it could.
That’s my five and now it’s your turn!
