I just realized how long it's been since I posted last. Been busy just living life. I guess when you have a busy life, and you're into a variety of other things, you don't have as much time to sit and reminisce.
One of the things that's been keeping me busy is this photography course I've been taking. It's a ten-week course, for beginning photographers. I'm not exactly a beginner, but I've never had any real professional instruction, either. The instructor is a professional photographer that teaches classes like this in his spare time.
Each week, we go over a different aspect of photography, and we have an assignment to carry out. We have to take photos that fit the theme of the class, and then we critique them the following week. I'll try and go over the lessons we were taught. The first week, we learned the basic function of the camera. We talked about things like shutter speed, aperture, lens focal length, and how they all affect the actual photo. The assignment was macro photography. We all had some in-class time to practice getting really close to whatever objects were close in the room, and shooting them. Then, we all went home and did some of our own macro shoots. Here are some of mine:
I think, for the most part, they came out really well. Let me know what you think.
