Tuesday's Hues | Mango

Today's color bar is inspired by my love for mangoes, also called "King of the Fruits"! The nutritional value of this fruit is unbelievable. I wish every season was mango season, but only one more month to wait. If you're interested in the macro shot of this delicious mango, you can find it here.

January: *Week 2 | Quiet Light

John is home sick today. This is our Quiet Light this morning as he ate his breakfast, brown sugar flavored oatmeal. It doesn't look like it from this image, but the kitchen and eating area are pretty dim, especially this morning. We are experiencing some overcast skies, which has been the norm for middle Georgia since the fall. 

If you read my previous Project 52 post, you'll know that I chose this year's 365 project called Finding the Light and January's theme is Quiet Light. I've been playing catch up with my photography and other art as I have been working my day job and trying to put the finishing touches on this site.

*Note: This isn't actually "Week 2", but this is my second entry for my Project 52. 

My settings: Shutter Speed - 1/20, f/stop - 2.8, ISO - 400

Tuesday's Hues | Ask, Seek, Knock

Today's color inspiration is from a head shot session I had with a few photographer friend's in Suffolk, VA. It was a winter day, super cold! The ornate patinaed door handle caught my eye. Image available for purchase in my etsy shop.

January: Week 1 | Quiet Light

This year I will be documenting my 365 Project with a group called Finding the Light. The 365 Project is actually a challenge with monthly themes. I will be posting an image per week, hence the Project 52. January's theme is Quiet Light. The image above is from Week 1. 

If you followed my 365 Project last year, Capturing 2015, then you know a little bit of my random style. I shoot from my heart, so I allow whatever I am feeling at the moment to inspire and guide me. 

One day this week, I woke up with my sons snuggled close beside me. My Bible App woke me with the reminder to spend my quiet time with God before I start my day. I've been reading a daily devotional called On the Farm. It highlights motivational parenting and spiritually discipling the hearts of your children with corresponding Bible verses. On this particular morning, I picked up my phone and snapped a few shots with the remote. 

Currently, I shoot with a Nikon D90 and always shoot in manual mode & RAW format. I majorly use a prime lens; 35mm is my absolute favorite! I had my camera set on a tripod for this shot. Also, I used the 5 sec timer with remote function. 

My settings: Shutter Speed - 1 sec, f/stop - 1.8, ISO - 1600
