I'm going to bring my blog over here now. I decided it would be easier to have everything in one place. My personal (although neglected) blog will stay at www.tiggrrl72077.blogspot.com but my professional blog is going to move over here. Hopefully I can figure out how to bring all of my old posts over here. But they will just have to go on the "To Do" list :)
I started two new classes this semester. Color Photography and Business Practices for Photography. My goals this semester are to improve my knowledge of photography and to improve and grow my business. I am making a point to put 100% into both of these classes. I have made the decision to succeed and I am going to do all that I can to accomplish that.
My first assignment for Color Photography was titled "Colors of the Day." The description of the assignment is - Based upon information provided in class, we learned that light at different times of the day may dramatically change the character and communication of a photograph. The assignment is with a digital camera, produce four photographs that successfully illustrate the identifiable characteristics of at least four of the lighting situations listed above (Before Sunrise, Early Morning, Midday, Late Afternoon, Twilight, Night) The choice of subject is yours but must be consistent from photo to photo.
I made the decision to photograph Portillos. It is a restaurant here in town that has a really cool, old fashioned looking building. I went over there for my first photographs at sunset last Sunday. The sun wasn't quite where I wanted it when I got there so I walked around for awhile to see what else I could take pictures of in the mean time. I found some really cool trees that looked really awesome during the sunset so I took some pictures of them. Then I walked down a little further to this other building that I've been wanting to take some pictures of for awhile. I believe it's a State Comp Building. I took some pictures there and walked back down to Portillos. I took pictures on all fours sides of the building plus I remembered next door is a cement factory so I took some pictures of there too.
The next morning I got up at 6:15 (YAWN!!!) to go down and take more pictures. I was a little disappointed because it was SUPER foggy so I wouldn't be able to get sunrise pictures but I got some awesome pictures in the fog. I walked all over and took pictures of all of the same places.
Last night hubby and I went back and took night pictures. I couldn't get any of the trees because it was too dark and there wasn't any lights around them. But I got all of the rest of them.
I love the ones of the trees. The color change is so dramatic. I am really contemplating going back and trying to get one more time of the day to finish that set off.
