Photo of the Week (29 August 2016)
This week we have a cute little elephant from Coconut Island and is a photo that is kind of along the lines of hotel photography. Like last week, this is another photo that has a bokeh effect that I personally find pleasing to the eye.
The photo features a garden decoration that had caught my eye the moment that I first saw it. Immediately I knew that I wanted to capture an image showing the decoration, but wasn’t quite sure how to do it at first.
While walking and taking photos of the backyard of the villa I had a eureka moment. Immediately the image to come mind: A low angle partial elephant with the depth of field blurring out the palm trees that line the beach.
Like last week’s photo, the image for this week is one of the first few taken with my Nikon D5300 when it was fresh and new in my hands.
Writing about it now, it’s rekindling my desire to find one of these little elephant decorations, even if I don’t have a garden. I do have a balcony though.. Maybe that could work.
Overall, I like this photo because of the bokeh, because I love the little elephant decoration, and it was one of my first few Nikon D5300 photos ever. Admittedly, I felt pretty accomplished that day.
Pretty much all the photography in hotels that I have done in the past has only been done incidentally. An event is held at a hotel is really the primary reason, but when at the hotel I do like to wander the area and see what I can capture. Essentially I just hope to be at the right spot at the right time to capture something (hopefully) unique.
Well, signing off for this week. Check back for the next post!
