I’m two photography classes in, and so far, so good. I thought I’d share a few of my photos from week 1 that the teacher seemed to like. The lesson was about light and the visual interest it can add to a photograph.
This gazebo is in a park along the Hudson River. This photo is an example of back lighting, with the light behind the subject. By throwing shadows towards the viewer, back light gives a photo depth.
These flags surround a monument in the same park. In this photo, the light comes on the subject from the side. Side light reveals the textures in a photo.
I love the quirky details of the old iron railings in Hoboken. This photo was taken on a cloudy day, and is an example of cool, diffuse light. See how soft the shadows are? They are almost nonexistent.
This is just a bonus pic, but he’s cute, so I’ll throw him in too.
TBH, I wan never really into taking pictures until a little more than a year ago, when I started taking them for my blog. Then I realized how much I loved taking photos on my phone, and wanted to take it to the next level. Are you into photography? How did you get started?
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
