Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

This post of the electric poinsettia is inspired by Leanne Cole Photography Playing With Light post. Thanks Leanne.  I had the students work with the same method and it was a lot of fun. Bringing the light to the front helped the foil reflect the penlight.

The weekly challenge: illumination by Cheri Lucas is a great one for this time of year.

  3. Great response to the challenge, Ruth. Loved the poinsettia and Francine was right. The pic of your Grandkids on the stairs is priceless.
