In and around all the floods, I've been doing a photography course. Just a basic introductory one, but something I've wanted to do for a long time, and finally got around to it. Of course, the deluge of Brisbane forced a couple of classes to be cancelled, and make-up classes hastily arranged, but it's actually been a really positive experience. Something else to focus on for a couple of hours a day; some useful skills obtained.
As I've walked home the past few days, I've kept my camera out and taken a few shots along Water Street - trying to practice some of the basic techniques I'm finally starting to grasp after two years with my Nikon D80.
I plan to continue practising where possible - and I'd love to have some suggestions of "themes" I could incorporate. For example - colours, numbers, objects, whatever concept takes your fancy.
I think sticking with still life is a good starter - not fruit bowls or that sort of thing, but flowers and plants. Delicate animals such as butterflies or birds are also great to capture. Road Works are simularly interesting to photograph as you can practice different angles with them and they almost always look fantastic. If you ever need a person as a subject, I'd be more than happy to volunteer :)ReplyDelete
Good luck with it all, photography is a remarkable subject to study.
Dan will be happy to get naked if you need a subject ;)ReplyDelete
