As I continue with Photo 101, I’m feeling a leetle more comfortable with my settings and am glad that my assignments this week are helping me focus on the artistic elements of photography. It’s more rewarding to think about what I want an image to include and then make it happen than I had supposed. For example, in the crayon picture below, it was fun to set the picture up, get a good exposure, and then realize that even though it’s more “artistic” than I usually shoot, it still tells the story about what we were doing at the table that afternoon.
I still prefer taking pictures of my kids over still lifes, though.
Compared to last week’s homework, I felt like this week’s came much more naturally. Hooray for that!
