This summer I’m co-hosting the Mondo Beyondo Dream Lab, an online class about rest, play and the power of kindness. Since I knew we’d need a new collection of images to post with the lessons, I commissioned my kids (plus four or five more neighborhood friends) to help me stage a little photo shoot. All the children involved were a little bit too grownup for bubbles (mom, we’re tweens, not kids), but everyone really got into it when I showed them how the bubbles were showing up in the screenfinder.
Whoa, Mom! How did you do that?? That’s cool!
I didn’t do it on purpose, but I had to agree. There was something about the combination of shooting in the golden hour, taking an extra step in and turning slightly toward the sun that took our bubble shots to a whole new level. Add some giant circle earrings and a circle wand, and you’re good to go.
So c’mon, sisters, it’s summertime afterall! Bust out the bubbles and show us what you can do. I’d love to see what other cool effects we can get with a little water, sunlight and suds. If you don’t have your bubble wand in hand then show us anything that speaks to you of summer. Yes! This is yet another photo contest!!
Show us what you’ve got between now and Sunday night at midnight PST over in our OWP Flickr pool and leave a comment here with a link to your shot. Only one image per person please and only those images shared through links in the comments here will be considered. There will be one “Grand Hello” winner that will receive a 36X24 canvas (Hello!) and 2 runners up that will win a 20X24 canvas compliments of Hello Canvas, of course!
For more summer inspired photography prompts like this one, it’s not too late to sign up for Picture Summer with Tracey Clark. Class starts next week on July 1st! Hello summer!
