I Heart Faces Beach Fun Photo Challenge

The weekly photo challenge over at I heart faces is Beach fun. I just happen to have some great pictures (I think) from the beaches at Shediak, New Brunswick. This is probably one of my favorites.

Step in a little closer.

As a newish Photographer I have to constantly remind myself to step in and get a little closer to my subjects. It really pays off when you fill the whole (or most) of the frame.

See this is a lovely picture of flowers in my garden. Nothing spectacular and certainly not something I would blow up and put on my wall.

Garden shot.

Zoomed in a little more. Getting better, but not quite there yet.

Purple Glads

Now this one I like. If you don't have a zoom lens just make your feet the zoom.

Purple Gladiolas

This one is nice too.

Remember the old Wrigley Gum commercials when you get and and shoot. "Get a little closer, don't be shy." Your pictures will look better and you will get lots more oohs and ahhhhs.

*All pictures shot with my Canon XSI in manual using my Tamaron 28-75mm lens no flash ISO 400 mid morning in the shade. Head over to my flickr account for full EXIF*
