I have survived another week of my university photography class. I even printed out those 3 contact sheets we learned how to do --- 60 photos in all. It's not as if there's anything like a whole biology book to learn, but taking a photo all the way to the printer kind of requires a committment to do regular work or else start from scratch every time. Luckily I am enjoying the experience very much, including confusing everyone with my lack of expertise when I actually have a reputation in town for being a good photographer.
My plan today is to highlight several of the photos I took during this initial process, and comment on each one for what I learned by taking it. All along on this blog I have shared my imperfect attempts along with my successes. I'm very comfortable with that. How else do we get better over time? I always appreciate the comments about what my viewers appreciate or what they don't understand. Thanks!
|Thank goodness for my tripod -- using all manual controls is not my strongpoint! This photo is also evidence that I was the one doing the work....|
|One of FIVE photos in the dark: I have a security light at the moment, so I incorporated it into my night images.|
|This is my favorite photo from the project, taken through both a window AND heavy rain. Nothing like having an empty horse barn on my property just waiting to be photogenic.|
|This was just for fun. Or was it expressing my not always knowing which way to go or how to get there.....|
|To show: a pair of images. The first one is a reflection in the pond, while the following photo is the shed the roof is actually on.|
|Behind me was the area where the building will rise. The MSU library is in the background. Notice: no snow!|
