So where was I? Oh yes!! Shimelle’s LYPLYP class assignment #1 ‘Finding your Lighting’…take photo’s of a single item in various locations & in different light conditions around your home…
…I chose my favourite Starbucks mug…& was quite surprised at the different light situations in each of my downstairs rooms!…No flash was used in any of these shots.
Assignment #2 was to photograph flowers outside in the garden from different angles…I had intended to only shoot a particular hanging basket, but ended up capturing the rambling rose & sweet peas as well!! I took soooo many pictures but here are my favourite three…
…with the number of images I captured for these two assignments, I couldn’t help but reflect on what an expensive hobby photography must have been before the invention of digital camera’s!! Aren’t we lucky these days?!!! My only sin now is that I organise them all neatly into files & folders on my PC…but don’t print too many off!! Usually only when I’m planning to use them on a LO or in an album…methinks I’ll have to rethink this!! My good friend Karen has started printing off a quantity of photo’s each month to keep in a normal photo album & I think I will be following suit, otherwise all these images could just get lost in the ether….& that would be sad!
I have to get my head around assignment #3 this evening as the Scrappy prompts start tomorrow morning &I can’t wait to get stuck into those!!!
I’ll close on a happy note…well I was happy anyway!! At my Weight Watchers weekly weigh in this morning, I had lost another 2lbs!!! So in three weeks I have lost the same amount as it took me three months to lose at the beginning of the year!! I really hope I can keep this up!!!
Thanks for dropping by!
