Photography Class Assignments Fall 2021: Week 4

Ok, I need someplace to post my photography and writing for my classes.  I continually take these classes, and then the work vanishes without a trace into the online homework systems, but why shouldn’t all of you get to see, or read, what I am doing too?? 🙂

Anyway, the third assignment for Week 3 of the class was Window.  So, here is my image from this week’s class, entitled “Rear Window.”

Photography Class Assignments Fall 2021: Week 3

Anyway, the second assignment for Week 3 of the class was Reflection.  So, here is my image from this week’s class, entitled “Wine Light.

Photography Class Assignments Fall 2021: Week 2

Ok, I need someplace to post my photography and writing for my classes.  I continually take these classes, and then the work vanishes without a trace into the online homework systems, but why shouldn’t all of you get to see, or read, what I am doing too?? 🙂

So, let’s start with my photography class this fall.  It’s called the 8-Week Camera Club, and this is the fifth time they’ve offered it.  The focus and topics change every iteration (I took it in version 3 as well) and this time around the focus is Word on the Street – one word themes, photographing things for what else they are!

I should not that this course used to be in-person until last fall, for reasons you can probably guess.  The last time I took it I was there in person in the god-awful most uncomfortable chairs imaginable, so I am VERY happy to be taking this from home now (not to mention I don’t have to drive in the dark and the cold and the rain to get to and from class).  I hope it stays online forever!

Anyway, the first assignment for Week 2 of the class was Linear.  So, here is my image from this week’s class, entitled “Age Lines”.

Photography Class Adventures

So, this term I am taking another photography class, this one more around composition than technical stuff.  Every week we have a theme – our instructor talks about the theme and shows examples which we discuss.  Then for the next class, we send in photos representing the theme to talk about in the next class.  And so on, and so on…  There are people in this class at all levels of intermediate-advanced, even people who take pictures for actual $$!  So, it pushes me, but is fun at the same time.

I was just sending in my submission for this week, and I thought, hey!  I should share some of this adventure here.

So, the first week was Architectural Abstracts.  So, basically pictures of buildings or building-like things, but abstracted so they are weird and wild and potentially unrecognizable.  I call this “A night at emerg”.

Week 2 was Geographic Plants – looking for shapes and lines in plants, flowers, fruits, veggies, etc.  I call this “The Last Tomato”.

And finally, this week is Vanishing Victoria – pictures of things that are gone, going, or old next to new, etc.  I didn’t get out this week to shoot this specific topic, and today I was not able to go out because of the rain (it is the rainy season after all), so I just sent in a shot from a photo fieldtrip from last March.  I call it “Sentinel”.

If I remember, I will keep posting to show what’s going on in this fun class!
