FOTO FIND FRIDAY

Well, beings that it is still pouring down rain outside, I had to resort to something indoors for the foto find Friday this week. And beings that I needed to submit an assignment yesterday for a class that I'm currently taking regarding the ins and outs of flash photography, I thought I'd just use one of the images taken inside our home for the class. Now...here is the kicker...what theme am I after this week you ask? Good question. Considering how my creative juices have been stunted by the rain outside & the walls inside our house, lets say that the theme for this week is going to be "round." Yes, round. Like roundness. Circular, a sphere, a circle, a ball, a wheel, etc. - just anything exhibiting a round shape. How korny, right? Hey...at least we have a topic this week. That is a plus ladies. I promise you that is a plus. Ha ha!

So...my submission this week is centered around the round nautical accessories that I have always loved on our great room coffee table. Due to the rain, I'm feeling beach withdraws. Gasp! Imagine that, eh? Thus where the nautical display comes in. Eleven more days. I just keep telling myself that I need to make it thru 11 more days. Anywho...I used these accessories yesterday for an assignment that I did in my flash photography class. I'm definitely a natural light girl but I'm really enjoying learning the ins and outs of my SB-900 Speedlight flash. Unfortunately the flash unit itself is like learning your camera all over again (yeap, a manual and an auto mode on the flash unit too) but it is so worth it. Not only that but my instructor ROCKS so it really makes the whole process so much fun. Therefore, without further ado, here are my nautical balls...(shhh....don't laugh - I'm trying to remain serious and not crack a smile when I type nautical balls. Wink wink!)


I love product shots. Maybe it is my background with my AGD line and knowing that I have to shoot an object with the intention of "selling" it. I don't know. Either way, product shots are fun for me. I find it a challenge to photograph the subject in the best and most flattering angle possible. Product shots are proof that anything can be photographed and made to appear interesting. It's just all in how you go about the angle, the approach, etc. when capturing its purpose. Just like with humans and photography, the key to product shots are finding that particular products "best side." So...now that I've rambled a bit, how about you join in this week with me? You don't have to do a product shot, but if you want to, feel free. No matter what, just make sure that your submission revolves around something "round." Sound good? For now, I am off to tend to Kenidi. She was home feeling under the weather yesterday and now the school just called and told us to come and pick her up again because they wanted her out for a full 24 hours before coming back due to the H1N1 flu scare. Brent just left to go grab her from school. I look like something the cat drug in and didn't dare go pick her up myself at the moment. :)

If you'd like to participate in the foto find Friday "round" theme this week, please blog a post on your own blog that has pictures pertaining to this weeks theme. Also, please make sure that you mention and link back to this AGD blog when you place the post on your own blog. We need you to make sure your link takes us directly to that specific post for this weeks theme (and not your blog home page). Also, please make sure that your post includes the info that links back to AGD. If those two things are not there, your link will unfortunately be deleted and you'll have to re-post it the requested way. We are looking forward to seeing your submissions. Have fun with it! ☮ & ♥, Angie

Poor Kenidi~ hope she feels better ASAP! I know what you mean about looking like something the cat dragged in...I was buying a giftcard at Red Robin this morning and was sopping wet...while I was standing there I realized my sweatshirt was on backward! Definitely a day to stay inside!! ;)

Hey Angie! I'd love to know where you're taking a class on using the flash. I recently purchased the SB-900. I've read the manual and I'm playing with it alot...but I KNOW it's able to do soooo much more than my tiny brain can comprehend! I've got to find a class to take!!
