March Monthly Challenge- Interesting Perspectives

This was another tough one for me because I'm still trying to master basic things like focus, white balance, and exposure. Composition and creativity often take a (very far) back seat- there's just so much to think about! Plus, my favorite subject is a 2 year old who has had more than enough of mommy's pictures and absolutely will not pose for me (notice that he is being held in both of these pictures). Sometimes I'm lucky and everything just falls into place, other times I end up with a bunch of pictures that are lacking something... I had this "interesting perspectives" idea in the back of my head all month and tried out lots of things that failed horribly and some things that sort-of worked... Even though I'm not completely satisfied with what I came up with, I'm thankful that this challenge pushed my creativity and got me thinking more deliberately about my perspective. Here are a couple of my favorites:

I'm so excited to see what everyone else came up with! I'm sure they were all far more creative than I was! First, head over and see what Jessica has in store. Then check out the other ladies in our circle: Angie, Caristy, Angela, Maria, Gina, Anne-Lise, Courtney, Megan, Rebecca, Muriel, Sarah, Ana,  and Pam.


  1. Nice job Erica! I really like them both but I think my fav is the first one :)

  2. I love these perspectives! The sky in the first is beautiful! Both look like so much fun
