Angles!

Oh my goodness! I think I'm more than slightly illiterate! When I saw I Heart Faces upcoming challenge for this week this on the side of the blog I read it as A-N-G-E-L-S. "Funny topic," I thought. "I'm interested to see how everyone interprets this category."  I wondered how I myself might interpret the category. And I came up with a way- a very creative (and possibly borderline sacrilegious) way to have an I Heart Faces photo of an angel. So imagine my surprise when I read this last night:

We think most of us realize by now that taking a straight-on photo of someone is usually not the best choice for portrait photography. Boring! :)

Unusual angles are fun and cool...and they make your photo stand out from the rest of the pack.

For this week's photo challenge, we are focusing on unusual angles. Stand higher than your subject, lay on the ground, move to the side, tilt your camera while you are shooting...do what you need to do to give your photo a uniqueness of it's own. A unique angle is what this week is all about.

And (of course!) make sure at least one face is clearly showing in your photo entry as well.

So here's my entry for the angles photo challenge, tomorrow I'll let you see what an angels post would have looked like (I mean why not- I spent so much time making it happen right).







Laughing at myself,

I love our picture and I totally read it that way as well and then when I went and looked at a few entries I was like ooooo ok hummm I would have looked really silly if I would have posted what I was going to post :)

Once again, you weren't alone in reading Angels, not angles. Love the photo and the blondie curls.

It's a trick on the eyes for sure. I love that picture.
