These first few were for our Week 1 assignment:
(trying to creatively "frame" using my azalea bushes)
And then I looked around and tried to find what Sarah Kate was doing. She was playing on her Princess computer and I ended up getting this series from her. (using the leading line of the sidewalk edge.)
(She spotted me.)
(All giggles. And right as I shot this McClain walked into the frame with the bucket of chalk.
We're going to call that more creative framing. Ha! I still love her little expression though.
Finally a NATURAL one of her.)
Again, these are SOOC (straight-out-of-the-camera, for those of you who don't speak photography) so they're not edited in any way. Just being in the class for 3 weeks now has made me realize how hard it can be to get a technically "good" photograph while trying to capture 3 busy, semi-cooperative little beings.
But it's been SO fun! I'm a sponge soaking it all up, and I have to say, it's brought me a lot of joy where there really hasn't been these last few months. This class has been a big bright spot for me and something I look forward to every day. I'm very blessed to be taking the class and so far I'd highly recommend it to anyone interested in bettering their photography skills.
Thank you, Lord, for the little things, the passions you plant in our hearts and then let us explore. What a gift!
