The Daily Shoot assignment for 2010/08/03:

How does your garden grow? Make a photo of something growing in your or someone else’s garden today.

I know I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again; photography has allowed me to see things that other people don’t. For example, I spotted these mushrooms growing in a small community greenbelt about 20 yards away as I was driving past them at 45mph.

I think this is becoming my favorite type of shot for young children. I think capturing a child looking up while shooting directly over them with a wide aperture amplifies their innocence. The exact opposite of shooting your subject from below with a wide-angle which give a sense of power.  I find that a 50mm at f1.8 works well for this.

I had the privilege of  distributing nearly 350 backpacks filled with school supplies to underprivileged children today. The children were excited and happy to receive them. Some were trading school supplies with siblings and friends and some were running home to discover what they had in their bags.

Landscapes are not my first choice when creating an image however I’m compelled to capture the moments when opportunities present themselves. I didn’t plan this shot. I happened to notice it through a window while shooting an event. I dashed outside and documented the moment forever.
