The Kickstarter Campaign and the Duet Exercise

You can see that though we were there at the same time our results were very different. She is often drawn to vibrant color, and that attraction shows in her first two photographs. I am most likely to be interested in details. 

The next time we went photographing together I was much more aware of the colors around us, knowing that she is drawn to them. I noticed the striking yellow green of a pine tree, and the red of a roof. It is these small shifts that increase our perception, and we can cause these shifts in each other.
