Love or Leap – February in Review!

Categories

Featured Products

Thanks to everyone who took the leap this month and participated in Project 12!

The Project 12 Team was impressed at the range of interpretations of the themes.  The images were fabulous, which made it close to impossible to pick only a few favorites.

Some of these were favorites from the first time I saw them, and others grew on me after I’d looked at them several times.   The elements that caught my attention were:  unusual interpretation of the themes, technically sound photographs, photographs that told a story and ones that made me smile.

So, here, in no particular order, are the favorite submissions from this month:

This little girl makes me laugh, and the more I look at the picture, the more I like it.  She’s so serious, but that whimsical hand-made headband lets us know that she’s a pretty cool kid!

This shot is so good – the colors, the exposure, the composition all combine to be a very interesting shot of a beloved object.

This shot is so simple, and is made profound by the addition of the quotation.  The use of monochrome is perfect here; I believe that color would have distracted from it.

This picture, by itself, tells a story of a long-ago marriage; I appreciate how the photographer pulled together all the elements to tell that story.  And when you had in the extraordinary narrative of how Alzheimer’s impacted this couple, it becomes even more poignant.

The simplicity of the familiar is what caught my eye with this shot.  The off-center placement of the stack of candy hearts is quite effective.

Poor Olivia.  She wasn’t happy.  But what a great photograph!  The very delicate colors enhance the image.

I love it that this little girl can get dressed up and jump off the steps!  This shot perfectly captures her exuberance – the way the hem of her dress is flying up and the way her arms are flung out give the shot a great sense of motion.  Good use of black and white, too.

And here’s another leap that I like.  The post-production and the way it’s cropped make it unusual and eye-catching.

Very few things touch my heart as much as pictures of new daddies.  I am not sure why that is, but that’s why this shot caught my attention.

Again, thanks to everyone who took part in Project 12 in February.  I enjoyed the images, gained inspiration and learned a lot from the images submitted.

We hope you will join us as Project 12 becomes Project MCP! Stay tuned for more information coming on March 1st!

    Really great explanation of the number #1 issue people face when figuring out LR for the first time. Definitely bookmarking this and sharing!

    Thank you! I mainly use Aperture for photo editing and organization. But I think it is important to know and understand how LR works. This was very helpful!

    Step 5, confused. I dont see how you turn off this for full size export.Oh, and Step 3. If there isnt a specific name of the file, which I dont always do. Does it just go in sequence?New to exporting.

      Debbie, in step 5, uncheck the Resize box to turn this off.Step 3 – it depends on the template you have selected. You can always experiment to see what it does.

    Thank you I have Lightroom 4 but don’t use it it scares me I just use my CS6. It’s the saving and exporting that kills me. Thank you
