I have to admit that today was one of those days were I was totally unmotivated to do anything, much less hop in my truck and drive to the location for today’s shoot. And even though I really like the results of my shooting/editing, I can’t get excited about it. Have you ever had one of those days? What did you do to get out of the funk?
Anyway, today’s images have a double inspiration. First from my friend Carol, who requested that I shoot fences, and also from Shannon, co-host of this months collaborative photo shoot project/challenge. This month’s challenge is silhouettes, and one of the idea-fostering images she shot prompted the shot of barb wire below. Thank you both, ladies, for the inspiration for today’s shoot 🙂 I don’t know which of the two silhouettes below will be my submission. I really like the barb wire shot, but don’t want to be a copy-cat. Though I think I should have used a larger aperture in the wooden fence image to reduce the star-ing affect of the sun. What do you think?
