Photography: Creative Captures Week 2

Week 2 of Souvenir Foto School was all about removing a distracting background, cropping in camera and directional light. I almost succeeded in getting all three done in this photo, but I needed to crop the image down a bit more in post editing than I had in camera. Oh well, there's always next time!

I also finally succeeded in capturing an image that captures my new found tea obsession. Little Dickens, I can't get enough of this stuff - it's just so very good!


  1. What a great shot! I particularly love the reflection of a tree (right?) in the tea. It's whimsical and warming all at once. And now I have to try Little Dickens. Just visited the Bellocq website. I want to sample everything. :)

    1. Yes, it is the trees in our backyard reflected in the tea. Bellocq teas are absolutely fabulous! I wasn't a tea drinker of any kind until I found them and now I can't get enough. I drink a cup every evening :) If you do order some, Bellocq always include a good size sample of a different variety of tea than you purchased, so I've been able to try out some others and I haven't been disappointed yet.

  2. Oh, that's good to know. I love getting samples! :)
