Featured image by Charis Rae.

Hey! For once this post is on the day I intended it to be. 🙂 Anyway, this is the last category in BIBPC #5. Gasp!

If your name is in italic then I didn’t get your photo for category #6 and if there’s a little + sign next to you name then I got your bonus picture(s) for category #5.

Coconut is now in third, and Pineapple remains in the lead. Kiwi and Coconut both got 11 bonus points since they lost a person.

Alright, time for my favorite photo! It came from CutePolarBear.

Isn’t that neat? 🙂

Time to see what the last category is!

Here’s my example photo. 🙂 I haven’t done many examples this BIBPC, but I decided to do one for the last category.

DSCN3170

It’s a bookworm! 🙂 (He’s real, by the way. This isn’t one of my clay creations. :P)

The deadline is  Thursday the 21st by midnight.

And like always, you can make a poster for BIBPC #6 (Boring into Beautiful Photography Contest #6, BIBPC the Sixth, etc.) and you’ll get four extra bonus points. I will choose one of them to be the official poster for BIBPC #6. 🙂 An easy way to make a poster would be on PicMonkey or Canva, but you can choose whichever way you prefer. 🙂

Have fun!

Team Coconut is a few points away from Team Watermelon! And Team Pineapple has reached the 500 mark!

My favorite “Fresh” photo was by Sarah from Team Pineapple.

••fresh•• my sister's fresh flowers from her graduation last year

I love the lighting! 🙂

The next category is Shadow or Reflection. Have fun! Your photos are due by Friday, the fifteenth. Maybe I’ll finally get Category #7 posted in time! Wouldn’t that be amazing? XD

Anyway, I suppose I shall leave now. I’ve had my rabbit Basil in here since I started this post and she’s getting quite worked up. She was even trying to type on the keyboard.

BIBPC the Fifth {Category #5}

Featured image by Charis Rae.

Hello everyone! I apologize for getting this up a day late. We were out all day yesterday so I didn’t have time to write this post.

Apparently “Celebration” was a difficult category for you guys. I still loved seeing your photos!

If your name is in italic then I didn’t get your photo for category #4 and if there’s a little + sign next to you name then I got your bonus pictures for category #3.  Continue reading “BIBPC the Fifth {Category #5}”

BIBPC the Fifth Category #4

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a good day and are ready to see the next category!

But first, the team points. If your name is in italic then I didn’t get your photo for category #3 and if there’s a little + sign next to you name then I got your bonus pictures for category #2.  Continue reading “BIBPC the Fifth Category #4”

The Camera That Shot Me

(Title credits to my cousin.)

Yesterday afternoon I wanted Allison to take a picture of me for my about page that I’m revamping, and Allison wanted me to take pictures of her for… something. Anyway, I had a lot of fun using Allison’s dSLR (anyone want to give me a dSLR?). She also took a few pictures of me after the about pictures, so I’ll have those here too.

BIBPC the Fifth Category #2

 

Featured image made by Charis.

We got back from Florida last night (it was amazing), so I’ve spent a lot of today grading all of the photos and replying to all the comments. But I’ve finished grading everything I think and am ready to write this post.

First of all, who wants to see how many points the teams got?

If your name is in italic that means I didn’t get your photo.

Thus Ends July

This is several days late, but better late than never! 🙂

My summer seems kinda run together, so I’m not quite sure what all happened in July. Thankfully I have pictures to look back over to see when we did what, and so I shall write about our adventures in July.

Here is my semi-celebratory blog post for 1,000 followers. Boring Into Beautiful Photography Contest is back! (Ugh, I really wish I had named it something else but I don’t want to change everything now. BIBPC it shall have to be.)

Fairly Hard Decisions

Like my pun? Heh heh. 

Our county fair is coming up in a few weeks and I’m having a hard time deciding what to enter in the photography section. I actually haven’t taken that many great pictures in the last year, but I still like entering. I’m going to post a few of my top picks and see if you can help me narrow the choices down at least a little bit.

Decision #1: People Category “A posed or candid photo of a person.”

people7
People Entry #1
people6
People Entry #2
people5

people4
People Entry #4
people3
People Entry #5
people3.5
People Entry #6
people2
People Entry #7
people1
People Entry #8
A few of these I don’t like very much, but I just wanted to make sure no one else did. 🙂

Vote below.

Decision #2: Pets “Your best shot of your companion animals.”

pets5
Pets Entry #1
pets4
Pets Entry #2
pets2
Pets Entry #3
Pets
Pets Entry #4
Pets3

Puts Entry #5

Also, if you really liked a photo I’ve posted before that isn’t in this post, you can tell me in the comments and I’ll see if I’d like to add it.

Vote below.

Decision #3: Wildlife “Wildlife in a natural habitat or zoo”

wildlife6
Wildlife Entry #1
wildlife5
Wildlife Entry #2
wildlife4
Wildlife Entry #3
wildlife2
Wildlife Entry #4
wildlife
Wildlife Entry #5

You may see some photos in some categories overlap. I can’t do the same photo in different categories when I’m entering in the fair, but sometimes I can’t decide which category to enter it in, so I’ll do both in the post.

Vote below.

Decision #5: Rural R* “A photo that defines our county”

Rural R2
Rural R* Entry #1
Rural R
Rural R* Entry #2
*The R stands for the name of our county. 😉

Vote below.

Decision #6: Architecture “A structure, such as a building or bridge that is the focal point”

architechture1
Architecture Entry #1
architechture
Architecture Entry #2
These two are the same picture, but I couldn’t decide if I should do it in black and white or not.

Vote below.

Decision #7: Close-up “An object photographed at very close range, with the subject clearly defined and recognizable”

wildlife
Close-up Entry #1
wildlife4
Close-up Entry #2
close-up5
Close-up Entry #3
close-up4
Close-up Entry #4
close-up3
Close-up Entry #5
close-up2 (2)
Close-up Entry #6
Megan (Daffodils, guitar, bunnies, trail, bubble) 079.JPG
Close-up Entry #7
Again, if you remember you liked a photo that I took and it isn’t here, comment away! 😛

Vote below.

Decision #8: Pictorial “A photo that conveys a feeling or an emotion.”

pictorialpictorial

Do you think this would work for pictorial? :/

Vote below.

 


Now all that remain are the categories where I only have one photo. I’m not sure if these would really count or not, but I might give them a shot.

Action “The focal point is a moving object.”

Assateague (19).JPG

Yeah… the focal point is my feet and they aren’t moving objects. 😛 It’s a pretty big stretch. What do you think?

Humorous “An amusing or humorous moment caught in the image.”

humorous

Do you find this amusing or not? I won’t explain to you what’s happening, because I can’t explain to the judges.

Abstract “Contains a design of patterns or shapes where the subject matter is not evident.”

silo tunnel Is this pretty obvious or not?

Artistic “A photo that has been altered using digital editing software or post printing.”

artistic

I combined three images into one in this photo.


And that’s all I have in the photo category! I’m also probably going to enter some inchworms, maybe a graphic design piece, and an elephant I sewed.

what is your favorite of all of my photos? 

do you think any of the last four photos would work?

Baby Bunnies (Again)

I need to work on my titles.

It’s time for more pictures of the baby bunnies! This time I’ll be posting pictures of the other three rabbits besides Basil.

Garden Photography

I recently went out to the garden to take some pictures of the gorgeous zinnias we planted, but I decided to take pictures of the other ripening produce as well. Continue reading “Garden Photography”
