Updates and Silhouette

Keeping up with a photo blog is a lot of work...I have been taking photos, but have missed a class so here are just some faves from the past couple weeks.

I made a silhouette...and was really excited!  More practice will leader to better future silhouettes :)

I think I am entering too late but will try anyways!  (Not sure about time change:))  Took this shot of my brother.  When I look at it, I feel cold, it just has that look.

Photo Assignment Week 3: Action

I was really slacking this week on practicing.  However I did manage to get Ben outside and help me practice action/motion for a bout 10 minutes.  I need practice...and a tripod :)

freezing motion

 blurring motion
panning...didn't really work out...i need a lot of practice.  panning is when the subject moving is sharp and the background is blurred.

Photo Assignment Week 2: Angles

i Heart Faces: Hilarious Outtakes

I have decided to try and take part in some of the challenges on the "i heart faces" blog.  The blog inspires me, and I think challenges will help me grow...since I have a lot to learn!  

Almost everything about this photo is awful...but this is what I got when I pulled out my new camera and asked my beautiful niece to smile....cracks me up.  The theme this week is "hilarious outtakes"...this is definitely both of those.  Reminds me of Ed the Talking Horse!
