When I got last week's assignment for the photography class I'm doing, I about died. "Anything But People." What?!?! How in the world are you supposed to photograph random things laying around your house?
It was with a very skeptical outlook that I started ransacking the house for little picture ideas, but...you know what? I actually had a lot of fun with it! Last week totally made me "Push Past My Comfort Zone"; ironically the name of the photo class!
So, here are a few little things around our house that aren't people :)
|This is a beautiful key chain that a very very dear friend sent me from Germany. I have it on my bookshelf along with a picture of her, and I loved the way the color on this one came out!|
After mentally debating with myself whether it was worth it or not to venture out into the heat (thermometer was reading 114), I decided to take the plunge. Lighting outside is just incomparable!
But as I walked out our front door, these little fried roses were the first things I saw...seemed appropriate! (and the light and bokeh are just heavenly!!)
|This looks so tropical or Hawaiian to me! But, believe it or not, it was our little country dirt road with a glorious sunset and a blooming Bird-Of-Paradise! So fun.|
This week's assignment was super fun, too...concentrating on slow versus fast shutter speed. These two pictures were in our irrigation canal. First one had a fast shutter speed (the water looks frozen) and the second one had a slow shutter speed (water is flowing). For those fellow photographers, the settings are on the pictures.
I will hopefully be posting some more shutter speed pictures later on. This class is teaching me so much!!!
