I had so much fun with this week’s photography practice. We are learning how to capture light.
The practice assignment was to take a photo of figures made with a flashlight in the dark. Who better to help me than my munchkins? They did such a great job and made it really hard for me to narrow them down. Here are our favorite four-
The other thing we had to do was try to take photos of the headlights of vehicles as they passed. This was a bit tricky but there’s a really dark road by my house so I just found a place to sit and adjusted my settings until I was able to capture the lights as best I could-
We also went to take photos of dirtbikes on Saturday to practice capturing motion. I’m going to have to keep practicing because those didn’t turn out very well. Some of the others in my class took some absolutely amazing photos, one looks like it should be a movie poster. I really enjoyed seeing the photos others were able to capture and I had a great time practicing. I’m seeing the mistakes I make and the changes I can make, I’m only three weeks in so I can’t expect to be a professional.
What are your passion projects? What are you doing to push you out of your comfort zone? Are you learning any new skills? I’d love to hear, feel free to share in the comments!
