The first lesson is all about finding your creative voice and here's the assignment:
Take at least 75 photos. Maybe more. That’s up to you. But start out without restraints on how many photos you take. And it needs to be of one thing, one subject.
(I feel like with photography, as with any other art form, I need to get warmed up. Usually the first 50 shots are pretty dry and once I get warmed up and the creative juices flowing I start really working with my own muse symbiotically.)
Now after at least 75 photos, find the one photo that you feel, out of all those photos is the closest to how you see and what you see. Post that. Also, to give us a little context, post your top five runners up for your number one choice.
I started out on Wednesday and decided to photograph the corn patch in the garden ... took the 75 or so photos and nothing jumped out at me ... yep, 75 photos of blah. Then I thought of the tea cups my MIL sent with Hubby when we married and thought they would be a perfect subject. We have one window in our house which faces north and so has quite good light throughout the day so I set up there and took photos in two sessions ... one with the sun coming fairly full in the window and later once it had moved to the side. The only problem was I got back from a four week holiday this week so I had to dust before I could start.
My #1 pick:
And the four runner-ups:
