Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project, where every week, my project partner, Greta of GFunkified and I, will post a picture (or pictures) we have taken based on a prompt. Our hope is that together, we can teach and learn from each other, stay accountable to our goal of improving our skills, and hopefully, be taking some gorgeous photographs.
This week’s prompt is ‘Sunset’.
1/30, f/22, ISO 6400
This photo nearly didn’t make it to the blog, because of course we decided on a prompt that needs to be photographed at a specific time. Of course unset is around the time we get the boys ready for bed, so day after day, I miss sunset. I considered cheating and posting an old photo, call it Throwback Thursday and be done with it. That totally defeats the entire project of course.
So today (my Thursday evening, your morning), I looked out the window, spotted the right moment, grabbed my camera, ran out to the balcony, quickly adjusted a few settings and snapped. They aren’t perfect. But that’s the thing about sunsets and nature. You don’t need to make it beautiful, it just is.
This week has been crazy. Good crazy. And I can’t wait to tell you all about it next week, once I’ve taken a breath, eaten some ice cream, and taken a nap. How was your week?
(What do you think of this ‘sunset’ photo? This is a photography exercise, so any critique is appreciated and welcomed!)
Next week’s prompt: Deep
