Scavenger Hunt Sunday [06-05-2011]

I've been a bit of a scavenger hunt slacker but trust me, I've been taking lots of pictures!!! I am still recovering from my Me Ra Koh photography workshop and editing the beautiful pictures that I was forced able to take in the worst lighting conditions possible. Despite my lack of time this week I was determined to participate....with the help of my pictures taken in the last month! Cheating maybe, but this is all about enhancing our photography skills and pulling our cameras which I've done. So here we go on another hunt.
Hot, Hot, Hot
my futures so bright that I gotta wear shades.

Finding Form
even in places you are not "technically" allowed to shoot.

Front Page of the News
or a Magazine Cover. This is a headshot I took of my friend Erica from my workshop. She was beautiful to photograph which made it so very easy. I even learned how to use my external flash which I used here. I'm in LOVE with my flash now. Wanna know the secret, send me a comment and I'll share. It works every time!

Chore
My dad is retired but always seems to be working or doing chores for others. Here he is filling up the backhoe so that he could help to dig out the foundation for my brothers new garage.

Beads
or sprinkles, they are oh so beautiful and delicious. This was my first cake pops attempt and I was surprised by how delicious they were. However they are a labor of love!

Glad to see you back to hunting again :D I am glad you learned a lot at your workshop. I don't have an external flash -but maybe I should add it to the list - ha!! And Mmmm - I want one of those cake pops - yum!

Stephanie said...

Your cake pops look delish! I'm teaching myself how to use an external flash, but I'm afraid I'm too addicted to natural light. You'll have to let me know your secret. :) Great shots this week!

Great pics - and I got all excited when I saw that you live in Chicago! I´m going there in September (I´m from Sweden) and if you have any (I mean it; ANY) suggestions of what I should do/look for/eat/whatever I´d be most happy to receive them. I´m going on my own and just meeting friends a couple of days, so I´ll have plenty of time to kill. :-)
