SITS Photo Learning Challenge: Day 3

I love learning and being part of challenges.  My belief is that life-long learning is a cornerstone of a healthy life.  May we continue to open our minds and fill them with newness as long as we all shall live.  (sounds like wedding vows)

Today's topic is Lighting in the SITS Photo Challenge.  I haven't studied it yet, I confess, but I took photos today and experimented with lighting.  I am working on an oil painting of our dog, Buddy!  We love him to pieces and no painting could do him justice, but this is what I've come up with so far. He is still under construction. The photos of the painting were taken inside in a room with lots of windows in the early afternoon.  In the first photo I used the flash.  In the second photo I didn't.

  2. i definitely like the second photo. im constantly having an issue because for the photos for my tutorials on my blog, im almost always at home after 10p and thats the only time i get to craft! so my pictures suffer. but i love the natural light coming in from outside.

  7. Thx guys! Both versions got votes so I think it's just up to the individual. Sometimes when we are so hard on ourselves we are only looking critically through our own lens. Someone else looking at the same thing sees beauty.
