There were no photography ruts in site this week! Whether you’ve been shooting mainly portraits or landscapes, all of you took chances and mixed things up. You went exploring and switched up your lenses and locations. You tested out some new perspectives and used new subjects. You pushed your boundaries this week and it was clear in your stunning shots!

Here are this week’s 15 Creative Photos.

15 Creative Photos

1. Linda Pierce – I had a similar picture from my photography exercise. I love capturing tree bark because of the texture and you did a great job capturing it! I also love the bright blue sky against the dullness of the bark.

8. Colleen Richert – This reminds me of our own trail by our house. I love your use of the leading lines with the trail leading us deeper and deeper into the photo. It also makes me wonder what lies up ahead. Way to tell a story!

10. Susan Slattery  - I can’t wait to get to the beach this summer! I love the pattern in this photo.  I might have switched up the angle a bit and taken it from the first sand dollar looking down at them. That would help show off the depth of field.
