The most beautiful summer moments

In the August 18 issue of KT we published an article about a new art studio for young people called Beehive Studio. The owner of Beehive, Kate Settle, asked her students to capture the idea of “summer” in one photograph. We think they did a great job and wanted to share some of their work with our readers.

The light is really good in this photo, the way it hits the flower perfectly makes the photo work. Flowers really reflect summer to me because they are really pretty like summer – spending time with family and happy memories.”

Photo by Ostara Gardy, 12. Ostara writes: “Summer to me is splashing in the glistening blue wading pool. I like this picture because it is perfectly timed, and shows the feet right before they land on the bottom of the pool. I also like the bubbles you can see of the surface of the water. The blue tint of the pool was refreshing on that hot summer day.”

My favourite part of the photograph is the way the water is frozen in mid-air by using a fast shutter speed, in a way that you wouldn’t usually see with your eyes. The photo is very happy and gives good vibes!”

Photo by Thomas Slaughter, 11. Thomas writes: “The turtle in the pool makes me think of summer because of the colours, and the subject of the floaty toy. I like how simple it with, with the shadow of the turtle, and that it follows the Rule of Thirds.”

Photo by Tessa Galbreath, 10. Tessa writes: “I like how this image captures the water perfectly, and the drops are very clear. It reminds me of water parks with my siblings, and makes me feel refreshed – just what we needed this summer!”

Photo by Zachery Langer, 11. Zachary writes: “I took this photo at Maplelawn Garden. The light in the photo means you just see the bird’s silhouette, and it shows its open beak. Birds are pretty hard to photograph, but I took lots of photos of this starling in different places in the garden, and this is my favourite.”
