today marks the last assignment from the c & c photography workshop. this assignment was about light and abstract. once again i felt like i was struggling. i was hitting some creative walls with this one and i also had little ones wanting to play and 'help' with the process. i was a little distracted, let's say. so, while i don't feel like i quite nailed this assignment, i'm pleased with a few of the shots and grateful for the push to look at a few plants in a new light.
1. get up close.
3. different angle.
6. your choice. a favorite taken during the workshop. and why.
this is one of my favorites because i like playing with negative space and using a blurred effect. i liked the contrast of the front part of the stone being in focus while the rest of the shot was out of focus. i really like all these colors together and the strong lines in the picture, too.
one last thing:
list 3 things learned/gained/observed during the workshop.
1. reflection shots are not my strong suit!
2. i am more comfortable shooting spontaneously. setting up shots and pre-thinking arrangements put me on edge. which is silly. once done i enjoyed the process. i tend to over think things and this was no exception. in the end, i liked being nudged out of that comfort zone.
3. while i am comfortable with my camera, i need to gain more technical knowledge. i'd like to shoot more purposefully.
thank you so much to carolyn and camilla for hosting this! this was my first workshop and i enjoyed it and the feedback so much.
