Regular Random – Five Minutes with Purple

The rules of this challenge are to spend five minutes photographing a subject using different lighting and angles.

These purple marsh grasses are so wispy and dreamy in macro and I’m totally in love with the bokeh.

Regular Random: Five Minutes with a Bouquet

Desley Jane hosts this challenge each week and the rules are to pick a subject and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting.

I tend to overthink each shot so I’ve always gone over five minutes in my previous attempts.  But these challenges have helped me realize that I can just trust my instincts and for the first time, I’ve gotten several great shots in five minutes.

Photo Challenge – Structure

This week, we are asked to share a photo of the structure of something typically overlooked.

Bee's Wings

A Bee’s Wings

So delicate and light, yet strong and intricate allowing the freedom of flight.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with Color

Here are the rules:

Pick an item or scene and photograph it for five minutes using different angles and light.

I do not have a green thumb so I can’t believe that I actually went out and bought several plants for my back porch.  But I’d love to get more bee and butterfly captures so hubby and I went off to the garden store.

Orange Coneflower 2

I’ve fallen in love with coneflowers – I think their umbrella shape is beautiful.  I also bought trailing verbena, dianthus and lantana.

So here’s hoping that the bees and butterflies will find their way to my door – and that my new plants survive the summer under my care.

Five Minutes – Regular Random

Desley Jane hosts Regular Random each week.  The rules are:

Choose an object or scene and shoot for five minutes using different angles and lighting and try not to interfere with it once it’s set up.  I confess – I have problems sticking to five minutes but I did with this post.

These are photos of my home office where momaskedmeforarecipe.com, photographyinpearls.com and photographyinpearls.photoshelter.com come together.  On my desk is an encyclopedia of birds and one for flowers (I really want to know what I’ve just captured!) as well as several photography books and different cookbooks.  (The flower on the monitor is a plumeria.)

Trust me – it’s much neater than my “real world” desk!

A neighbor found this flower and gave it to my husband knowing that I would want to photograph it.  It’s a Maypop and it’s a favorite of bees and butterflies.

Regular Random – Orange Tulip

Desley Jane hosts #regularrandom each week and I had so much fun last week that I decided to play again today.

The rules are that you spend just five minutes with a single subject or a frame, shooting from different angles, seeing how the light changes, all the while trying to interfere with the subject as little as possible.

I have to admit that I didn’t follow all the rules.  I loved the first set of pictures so much that I took photographs the next day with different lighting.  The bright color made me smile!
