Love your Pictures, Love Yours Pages - Day 2


Day 2 project

Photographing Florals

On the first day of this new e-course I had to take a photograph of an object indoors and experiment with lighting, moving it around the house at different times of the day.

On Day 2, my challenge was to go outside and choose a plant. I had to photograph it from different angles, into and away from the light, looking up and down, zoom in and out.... a vignette, add a foreground, front each angle, and so on. I grew quite fond of my pelagonian by the time I had finished, and I enjoyed experimenting with different ways of taking these shots. I'm still struggling with the layout on the blog page, but persistence will pay in the end.

Love your Pictures, Love Yours Pages - Day 3

Shimelle's challenge today was to take photos that focus on '3'. My photo says it all, and I love being inspired with new ideas. I've yet to post day 1 & 2 photos, but can catch up as the rest of the weeks course changes tack. I've also used Photoshop to make a slight modification to a photo that I plan to scrap this weekend. Quite excited that I managed to do this without too much time and effort! I really do need to use these photo challenges to get to grips with Photoshop, and am waiting delivery of a manual I ordered from Amazon so that I can tackle more challenging projects I have in mind. Off for a 3.5 mile walk now, with camera of course!
