It’s taken a while, but I’m finally starting to get back on track with my weekly photo project.
This is another one of those times when I really should have thought things through a little better when I was putting together the list of prompts. It really would have made more sense to schedule this particular prompt in spring or (better) fall, when there’s still something interesting to take photos of, but the golden hour happens at a more reasonable time.
It’s a good thing that, with a bit of manipulation, the same light that’s so perfect for ‘Chiaroscuro’ also works for ‘Backlighting.’ Otherwise, I might’ve been running a backlog for a few weeks while I caught up.
It took an extra week, my first idea for this prompt really didn’t work, I’m not feeling all that inspired, and I’m not really happy with the composition, but it’s done.
Sometimes, this project is more difficult than it should be.
This isn’t Art, obviously.
But that’s not the point, especially in this case.
At some point, I’ll have a few days in a row that aren’t dark and rainy, and I’ll be able to actually go outside to get the photographs I really want to make.
Not every prompt is going to result in a photo that’s particularly good, or even interesting.
And that’s fine.
