Ok. So I started the Photography 101 course from the Daily Post. I’m running a few days behind because I am trying to learn about photography through this course and I’m also trying to learn to use a new camera I just got. So, since I am a few days behind, this will have the first 3 days of the course.
Day 1: Home
Now, according to the assignment, we are to decipher what we feel “home” represents. For me, home represents where we live and who we live with. A few of these will be pictures that you may have seen before (as they appear on my blog elsewhere). These are the people I live with:
Whew….that’s a lot, but wait….I’m not done! This is our home:
I love our home! Honestly it’s just Aarron and I that live in that one. The bigger home on the right of the photo is where my father and my daughter live at right now.
Day 2: Street
Today we were to take pictures of a street while focusing on the both a background and a foreground. Here are a couple pictures of the street I live on. I will tell you now, it’s not a big city that I live in.
I live in a small town. While there are houses nearby, there is still so much more room than in the city.
Day 3: Water
Day 3 we were to focus on water and the orientation of the picture. However, I have to drive about 2 hours to get to the nearest body of water. I thought about taking some pictures around the yard where water tends to collect, but then I remembered I live in the desert! It hasn’t rained (at least anything significant) since December. So, you ask, what does that mean? Well there is no water collecting in the yard at the moment. Because of this I decided to again use pictures I have.
Instead of orientation, I present different perspectives of the same lake, Patagonia Lake.
Tomorrow I will do Day 4 and continue on from there each day.
Have a great day!
