I Clicked It Up a Notch- August

I love Courtney’s site Click It Up a Notch.  Every month she does a link up in which you can show off you best shot of the month.  It is fun to see your own photos each month and see how you have been “clicking it up a notch” yourself.  The idea is not to compare yourself to others. The idea is to compare yourself to your yourself.  Watch your photos mature and your style change/evolve as you keep growing.

I really had an ah-ha moment this week (not the 80’s band).  I did a photo session with a couple of young adults that go to my church.  They were gracious enough to be my guinea pigs, um models.  I was trying to get a shot to submit for the Chic Critique Photography Idol contest to submit as a wild card slot. 

The assignment was posing and prop.  You needed to create an image that TOTALLY reflected your style.  I really had no idea what my style was.  It changes with my moods.  So I asked them if they would be willing to model.  I met them at a location I have been wanting to photograph at forever. 

I worked really hard to make it mine and own it.  Like the pros do.  I hit a breakthrough.  I pushed myself and I am so happy I did. I got some fantastic feedback from great friends (you know who you are) that took my editing a step further by giving me some fresh eyes and a new perspective. 

This photo is one from the session.  I will share many more.  I loved them!
