i signed up for an online photography workshop at c & c photography.
i have never taken a photography class or workshop before, so i'm really excited about these assignments.
the first is framing an egg. and while i of course
didn't couldn't restrain myself to taking only 36 frames, i did only end up with 28 frames i felt worthy of sharing. i'm no good when it comes to using artificial light. so, i held out for the sun (and held out and held out). let's just say it was rather gray around here. so i shuffled my egg from the kitchen table, to the kitchen counter, and to bea's room trying to catch the light. this is where the bulk of my shooting took place, trying to get my whites white and not gray or blue and not washed out.
it took some time. all this while trying to protect said egg from two curious little ones.
then one day, i lost all sanity, and took sweet egg to the playground. egg did not have as much fun as i had intended. i think she was afraid of heights because she stayed close to the ground.
on another day, we ventured into the woods. egg seemed very at home here. she found many cozy spots to nestle into and contrasted very nicely with her surroundings. she didn't make it back home though as she was cracked the minute we began our mosey. she hides her flaws well, that egg.
