The topic for this week in the shutterbugs workshop was composition. Look for use of the rule of thirds, leading lines, and negative space.

Marlene and her family won a portrait session through the Becky Higgins Blog contest earlier this year. It has been about 14 years since her family had a portrait made. I'm glad we were able to have the session before her boys grew up completely and moved out on her!
She had her heart set on an outdoor session by a lake, so we scheduled it for October. Unfortunately, the recent heat wave drove us indoors for most of the session, and she wasn't able to reschedule. Since I was just as disappointed as Marlene, I decided to create a cool new backdrop for the session. I gathered up four doors and got to work painting and distressing them. Some were already pretty distressed!
More images soon! I'm still editing them...

These images were from the third week of our photography enrichment class for grades 4-6 at SSKY elementary. Just before these images were taken, we discussed the basics of composition. We covered framing, line, and the rule of thirds. You can really see those concepts expressed in these images! I hope you enjoy the show...
