Friday was day twenty, of Photography 101. The theme, Triumph.
“Today, let’s bump up the contrast for a bold take on triumph… Tip: Triumph usually denotes drama of some sort, no matter whether it’s big or small. Playing with contrast is a great way to enhance your photos for a more dramatic effect.”
“The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?” ~J. B. Priestley
I took this photo on Wednesday after the first snowfall of this year. It came immediately to mind for Friday’s theme. I remembered being blinded by a blanket of white with a skeleton of dark branches and hills protruding from it while framing my shots. Nature was triumphant in her presentation of contrast!
This was the last theme for Photography 101. I have enjoyed it immensely and feel I have grown as, I hesitate to say it, a photographer. The commitment to take and edit photos every day created the paradigm of practice, and the daily prompts, tips and comments from fellow participants and presenters were all helpful.
I’m hoping to post a gallery of images in the next day or two as a synopsis of my participation in Photography 101. At some point, I would also like to revisit and complete the optional weekend assignments which I was unable to do during the event.
Sending out a big thank you to all involved and looking forward to seeing everyone’s future photos!
