It is a fun workshop - all very light-hearted and non-pressurized. If you fancy giving it a try and learning more about your camera, you can still sign up. The two week online class is $35 and if you miss a day, they keep the worksheets up for a couple of months so you can do them later.
|Photo silly class day 1. Photo taken with eyes shut|
When the photos were all taken, we look at each one for source and direction of light, composition, camera angle and how that affects the scene, etc, and then select only ONE photo and put that on the flickr site.
It was interesting how in those "studying" 5 minutes, I saw far more interesting things that I had first thought. How often do we actually really look at things around us for 5 minutes?
My single photo is shown above. I like the combination of both dead and alive daisy heads in the photo (apart from the dead heads telling me I need to do some gardening!). I also like that the top right hand corner doesn't have much going on, just soft greens.
Let me know if you join in! Go on! It'll be fun, and each assignment is short.
