The 52 Project: Week 7



The 52 Project will now be posted at my photography education site, Photo Camp. Please head over there to follow along or to find some creative inspiration of your own.

The 52 Project: Week 5

I’m posting Week 5/52 a few days late.  I actually shot on Tuesday, but then had trouble finding time to download, edit and post.  I’m sure this won’t be the last time!  One day I was sitting on the floor in Caleb’s room, and I noticed a stream of light coming into the hallway through the bathroom window. I had literally never noticed it before and I knew it would be the perfect place to play with highlight and shadow. Caleb crawled up and down the hallway (he is really on the move now, but still mostly slithering on his belly) and I experimented with using the window light in different ways.  Not surprisingly, I have a lot of frames. This was the only one where he stopped and for some reason looked up at the window. I love that his face is lit and everything else is in shadow.  I did some minimal editing to burn the shadows (make them darker) and dodge the highlights (make them brighter.)  The image was shot at f/2.5, 1/100, ISO 640, 50mm.



Wedding and family photographer, Julie Afflerbaugh lives with her husband and two adventurous boys in Boulder, Colorado. For more than 10 years, she has worked as a professional photographer in Colorado capturing natural images of weddings and families in beautiful outdoor locations. Her approach to photographing newborns, children, families and weddings is to encourage her subjects to be present in the moment and forget the camera is there. The results are images that are relaxed, playful and real. Julie has earned a reputation as a premier wedding photographer in Boulder, Colorado and is available for travel to her favorite destinations. Get in touch if you are planning a crested butte wedding, a steamboat springs wedding or a Lake Tahoe wedding.
