Week three we focused on composition as we learned about lines, shapes, colors, patterns, framing, simplicity and texture. I found myself looking around all week as I was driving thinking "OHHH that location would be a great composition shot" and a couple of times I caught myself thinking "I wounder if that homeowner would consider me trespassing if I jumped that fence and took a photograph of my kids in front of that great colorful door." So I decided I better not trespass, but I sure was tempted. WOW the possibilities with composition are endless. Can't wait to take more photos.
Well I have always loved photos taken along the old railroad tracks. I always thought it was because I love the urban, rustic look but after this weeks lesson it's the lines and shapes of the tracks that makes the photo so fun and interesting. My challenge was that it was starting to get dark. Hey Brooke I wanted to use the rule of thirds and place Brandon on the right side, but there is a road on the left side of that track and I could not get him in the view finder exactly where I wanted him. i probably should have positioned myself a little better.
I hope to convince my family to come with me to the tracks this weekend and take some family photos for our Christmas cards and have a little more sun for better lighting.
Well here I loved the horizontal lines of the bridge.
Brandon has a few trees growing out of his head with this shot which I didn't even notice when I was taking the photo. It's so hard to remember everything at the click of a button.
Thanks for taking a minute to look. If you see me in your backyard taking photos don't call the cops. Just know I am practicing my composition skills. Have a great week.
