Photos can convey a lot of different emotions—loneliness, courage, frustration, excitement, for example. But being able to capture and preserve a moment of joy is something truly spectacular. In this image, Lorie Shaull memorializes the smiling face of this young member of Greenbelt’s S.I.T.Y. Stars Jump Rope Team, at the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade this past weekend. You will not always be able to predict such moments of happiness, so you might want to keep a few things in mind. When it comes to your point of view, think outside the box! In this photo, Shaull is at a low position capturing her subject in action. Also, the brightness and bold colors of the subject’s outfit and the background of the image bring out the joy in the image much more than muted tones would. Thanks for sharing, Lorie!
