I'm having a bit of a love/hate relationship with this challenge, but I guess that's why it's a challenge, right? Some days my life is just not conducive to taking photos of sunsets and silhouettes. Another day I was inspired to do something I have intended to do for literally years. More on that tomorrow.
Day 7: High angle
I stood on the kitchen table to get this shot of Espen eating his lunch. A few thoughts: that kid is one messy eater, and I need to dust the lamp.
Day 8: Sunset
The world was not cooperating with me for this one. Sunsets move fast and don't wait for people who let the battery in the camera die while they're in the middle of a 30 day photo challenge. On my first attempt the battery died, so I went back in, defeated. Nick sent me out again with the camera on my cell phone. The pictures came out flat and awful, so I went back in, defeated. Nick sent me out again with the camera, whose battery had now a chance to charge minutely. I pointed the camera in the direction of the sky, snapped this and the battery died again. All things considered, I think it turned out pretty decent.
Day 11: Silhouette
With Nick gone at work all day, my best option for a model is Espen. Problem: Espen doesn't stop moving. Ever. Solution: Snap him while he's in his high chair and can't escape (see high angle shot above). Actually, we were giving him dinner the other night when I noticed his shadow on the wall and thought "hey, silhouette!" Those little cheeks are packed full of spaghetti, and the other shadow is his beloved sippy. Note: Espen does not actually have a cone head.
