Wow, where did September go? I am sad summer is over, but I also look forward to the beautiful autumn we have here in Connecticut. As September, 2020 comes to a close, it’s time to share the images for my personal project, Project 52.
For this personal project, I post one image a week to Instagram, and every month is a different theme. You can click on any of the links below to see all of the different and fun themes.
- January was “low light”
- February was “details”
- March was “black and white“
- April was “documentary“
- May was about “perspective“
- June was “full sun“, and
- July was “movement“.
- And August was “intentional blur“.
The theme for September, 2020, was “composition.“
What is Composition?
According to the blog of P52 Clicks, who runs these project, composition is how the elements within the photograph are arranged. This can be something as obvious as where you position the main subject, or as subtle as the placement of certain colors throughout the frame. How you choose to compose your frame will determine the story you tell. Even the slightest change of angle and position can greatly affect the scene captured. Composition includes a myriad of different aspects, such as leading lines, framing, symmetry, and my personal favorite, the rule of thirds.
I liked this theme, since there are so many interpretations with composition. I adore the one of the baby piggy toes in the beach sand. (and was obsessed with those baby toes!) And I was a little saddened by the strange but beautiful sunsets we had the week of the terrible fires out west. Finally, be sure to scroll to the bottom for an image of yours truly getting a blow dry at a fancy “dry bar”, in Boston for my birthday!
I’d love to know which one is your favorite! Hope you enjoy taking a look, and thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂
