Week 32 – Motion

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “motion”. And instantly what came to my mind is my dogs, Kona and Ruca, they are¬†constantly in motion. They like to use our living room sectional as a running track. And Ruca, the german shepherd, always wants to play. And will do anything, I mean¬†anything to catch a ball before it … Read More

Week 31 – Friendship

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “Friendship”. I always try to think a little outside the box and what might be “expected” for the theme. So I chose to go the route of timeless pairings of things…like peanut butter & jelly, or oreos and milk in this case. A perfect pairing, a friendship until the end. I … Read More

Week 30 – Water

This week’s theme for LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “water”. Instead of just shooting the beautiful ocean or rivers, I wanted to get my water in some different action. I made our kitchen table soaking wet having my husband help throw ice cubes into the water glass. I wanted to put it in B&W to add to the simplicity of … Read More

Week 29 – Summer

This week’s LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project theme was “Summer”. I had this idea of light writing with sparklers and spelling “summer”. I wasn’t a hundred percent sure it would be possible, and after several tries of spelling summer backwards I nailed it, and I am really proud of the results. I set up my camera on a tripod, put it … Read More

Week 28 – Texture

This week’s LensProtoGo 52 Week Project theme was “texture”. I didn’t have a clear plan for this one, but my husband and I we were walking around downtown Charleston during the Second Sunday (a day where they close King St. to traffic and let people walk in the road and the restaurants become outdoor cafes, definitely check it out if … Read More

Week 27 – Reflections

This week’s theme from LensProtoGo’s 52 Week Project was “Reflections”. I knew immediately that I wanted to shoot the Cooper River Bridge here in Charleston. I went for a more subtle reflection this week. I really like the softness of the reflection because the water was really moving and there was a lot of wind, and it made for a … Read More

Week 26 – Yellow

This week’s LensProtoGo 52 Week Project theme was “yellow”. My original idea was to shoot this old yellow Chevy truck that one of my neighbors has parked in his driveway…but I don’t know him. So I decided that I would do something cool with lemons. At first I was shooting the lemons, and then I cut a lemon slice and … Read More

Week 25 – Looking Down

This week’s LensProtoGo 52 Week Project theme was “Looking Down”. Once again, I wanted to avoid cliches or the expected shot of staircases, or eyes looking down. I actually didn’t have a clear plan in my mind for this one, and I decided it would just sort of come to me so I went about my day. I decided I … Read More

Week 24 – Monster

This week’s LensProtoGo 52 Week Project theme is “Monster”. I struggled with this a bit…do I go for a scary monster or a “cute” monster (a la Monster Inc.)? I decided to use my dog Kona, because she is the little monster currently in my life. Anyone who has a puppy I’m sure can relate to the growing pains of … Read More

Week 23 – Blue

This week’s LensProtoGo 52 Week Project’s theme was “Blue”. Which, fun fact, also happens to be my favorite color! I wanted to stay away from all the blue “cliches” like water and sky. I went out shopping for something blue and that would make a cool abstract shot. I went into Pier1 and found this organic wave shaped blue and … Read More
