About the same time I started doing my photo experiments (See posts here and here), Brenda started her series of photo Studies. While I was focusing on sharing my experience (struggles?) on following steps showed in tutorial videos, Brenda focuses more on the technical side (I hope I said it right.)
I found Brenda’s series very interesting. I tried to join her earlier, but I didn’t find enough free time to take satisfying photos for her study, so I didn’t post any. This week, Brenda’s photo study is about shape. I would encourage you to stop by to take a look at here.
Ted Forbes in his composition study (Brenda has a link to Ted’s video on her post) talks about the following techniques: Cropping, Scale, Fragmentation, focus, lighting, Metaphor, implied shape. The last two are difficult for me. I decided: for me, at this point, in this cold weather, “knowing” probably is good enough 😉
Since I haven’t gone out for a while, we don’t have too many things left in the house (Spring is coming soon, right?) Onion, banana, garlic – not my preferred choices, are my subjects.
Thank you, Brenda, for a wonderful post. I also like to take this opportunity to say that I haven’t commented on many posts that I would like to comment, and I am sorry (I did read them). It seems like I can only accomplish a couple of things a day. For example, it took me 4 days to complete this post: should I make a trip to the grocery; if not, what could I use; how could I use them? Would photos be interested enough; how about lighting… A lot of thinking time 😉 (What had happened to me? I used to be a happy clicker…)
Thank you for visiting my blog.
