Its December and a new theme for the Share Six team. This month Ceri chose the theme - storytelling.

Such a wonderful theme especially if you have children like I do, so I knew I had to involve one of them for this theme. My son had come home from school with a book on common garden birds and very excited to look for them from our kitchen one weekend morning. He set himself up at our patio doors and watched our bird feeder eagerly. We were lucky to spot quite a few different birds so he was extremely happy as we ticked them off in his book. I used my Lensbaby edge 50 for this shoot as I felt the slice of focus it gives really lends its self well for storytelling,it allows you to have the areas of the frame in focus that you really want to draw attention to.

I think this quote pretty much sums it up -

“Don’t shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.” ~ David Alan Harvey

I hope you all enjoy this theme and we look forward to seeing all your images!

Until next time
