I had gotten busy and hadn’t had a chance to put my theme together to present in class on Tuesday. I looked through all of my photos and couldn’t think of anything that would unify three different pictures. Good grief! It shouldn’t be this hard.
After a bit of deliberation, I finally decided on my theme and loaded my three pictures on my thumb drive.
I think my favorite part of Digital Photography was this last class where we got to share. I loved seeing my classmates’ visions and points of views and the stories they wanted to tell.
Some of my classmates went with subjective themes, such as “eyes”, “trains” and “flags”, while my other classmates decided on a general theme, such as “light through windows” and “reflections”. It was fascinating to see where they had been to get the shots they presented. We each gave reasons for why we photographed what we did, how we did it, and what emotion/story we were trying to convey. We each also gave verbal and written feedback from our classmates.
I finally presented my theme on “honey”. Though it was hard, I finally found a running theme in the pictures I took. The first picture is obviously of honey from the Winter Market. I love the warmth of the light.
My second picture was from the Capitol Building where there are plenty of beehives everywhere.
And my last picture was a little bit of a stretch–I call it, “Yes, honey.”
I got some great feedback and I have some direction on how to make my photographs better. Plus, I feel like I learned about artistic perspective when my classmates presented their pictures.
This class was a great mixture of in-class lectures/learning our cameras and off-site field trips. Man, I had to stretch with this assignment too. If you want to get better, give this class a try. I loved it!
