So this was the last week of the workshop I am taking online. I've had such a great time, and I learned so much!
This weeks assignment was to capture moments of interaction, emotion, and expression! We were to use our long lens, so we could step back and go unnoticed. Also, we were to convert those shots to black and white, without using a preset, only using Lighroom! Then we were to create a picture essay, which I failed miserably at. I didn't understand the gist of the assignment, and then, when I finally got the idea, I didn't have time to redo it. So, I just had to turn in what I had. We also were supposed to shoot with a high iso, to see our cameras ability to shoot in low light. I thought we were supposed to shoot the whole assignment this way, but no, it was just supposed to be one picture, duh!! So, all these pictures are shot with an iso of 2000 or higher!
I really thought this week was hard for me, I felt like I struggled to accomplish the assignment successfully. Oh, well, it's a learning experience!
Here is what I turned in for my interaction, emotion, and expression shots! I do love black and white pics! My favorite, to hang in my house, which by the way, I need to get some new ones up! I was looking around the other day and I am ashamed at some of the pictures gracing my walls, time to upgrade!
Yes, Luke has been the main focus in our house the last few days!
A boy and his dog!
The best little pup, already knows his name, hasn't kept us up in the night, crate trained, and doing great at the potty thing! He likes to heard the kids, very funny to watch. He is most comfortable, with them all in a group! He also has to tuck them in their beds at night, so cute!!
Luke likes to keep Matty in line! For the most part Matt likes it, but at this moment, he got a little scared! Luke was tugging in his sleeve!
I love these girls! Just us doing what we do best, telling great stories and laughing together! I can always count on Emily for a great reaction!
So this next section is my lifestyle photography portion! I went to the garage with the boys! They were cleaning up the place and hanging up Daddy's banner, from his band days!! Again, I was supposed to tell a story and I don't think I succeeded in that, but I still captured the boys in their element, so it wasn't a total loss!
I do love these tire shots, I think they came out cool!
