I had my first Digital Photography II class this past week.
It's going to be a challenge. I'm a little bit intimidated.
Okay, I'm a lot intimidated.
But it's so much fun to show you guys my pictures, so, I think we should just get on with it, don't you? This week's assignment is "Reflections and Shadows," which is pretty much what you would think it is. My teacher asked us to just walk around in the morning hours and afternoon hours, be observant, and take lots of pictures and come back with ten images.
He showed us a few inspirational photos and then let us go.
Just like that.
So, I borrowed the "good camera" from my sister-in-law, who is letting me rent her camera a few days a week in exchange for a few piano lessons (she felt like she was getting the better end of the deal, but I assured her that it was I who was the winner here), and I haven't stopped snapping pictures since last night.
First up are reflections. It seems like this is going to be an easier one for me than shadows, honestly. Emma has a ballet class that meets on Thursday nights, so, ballet mirrors - duh!
Here are my favorites from ballet class:
And this morning, I had a little time to myself, so I stopped at my favorite morning light spot and tried for a second round of "reflection" photos.
So...which ones from each group do you like?
PS - Know what I think would be fun? Will you take some pictures too? I won't post lecture notes or anything like that, out of respect for my professor, but I will post the week's assignment theme and I'd love to see some pictures you guys take along the same themes. Wanna play?
