Creativity Boot Camp Assignment #5

Today, our assignment was "grow".  At first, I thought of plants/flowers and then my kids, but I had already taken pictures of them this week.  Then it came to me…what grows more than a pregnant belly.  Plus I haven’t really taken any belly shots this pregnancy.  I went outside to take them in front of some landscaping to also have another element of “grow” in the picture.  I put on my favorite maternity shirt that reads “Worth the Weight”, because I thought that represented the theme as well.  I took a couple of different shots, but once I got inside and looked at them, I wasn’t satisfied with the focus.  But it’s just too hot here to go back and take more…feels like 95 at 8:30 in the morning.  So I played around with a couple of different settings/actions in photoshop to create the following:Photobucket

Love the side shots! Keep cool, the heat is tough on pregnant women. You just seem to get over heated so quickly.

Yay! I was thinking about that yesterday that you needed to take some belly shots before the baby comes. I'm ready to actually look pregnant so I can take some too. And we need to take some together when I come down in a few weeks. I can fake it a little ;) since I could pretty much look pregnant even when I wasn't. I can't wait to meet new Baby Lindsay! Hurry and get here already!!!

What a great idea, I remember being pregnant in the summer with my daughter. We lived in Texas at the time, she was born in August. Enough

This is quite possibly the perfect picture for "grow" I love it. Hope you keep cool.

NIce little bump you got there! Guess you don't need me to do belly shots tomorrow after all! :)

I like the B&W one on top right.

Gorgeous belly!! I was so hoping someone would use a baby belly for inspiration :) What sweetness! (My daughter was born in August... and I do not envy you being pregnant in the summer months... try to stay cool!)

I'm glad you picked your growing belly for this assigment! Nice shots. I like that you included B/W and colour.

What else could you have chosen? It HAD to be your baby bump!
