Assignment #2 - Numbers

4 objects

5 letters

Literal 11

15 lights

Shade 29

46 books in the Old Testament

21 diamonds


This assignment was...challenging. I have been conditioned to look for numbers or number symbolism everywhere. 
However, the most challenging part of this assignment for me was finding enough light.
I came home after sun down everyday I worked on this assignment, so I had to work with the artificial light in my apartment. Unfortunately, my apartment has REALLY low lighting.
As a result, I got many black pictures...all of which I had to keep and move on.
I understand the need for good light much better now.
Manual is so much fun to shoot on a camera, at least when you have really good light to work with.

Things I learned while completing this first assignment:
It is difficult to shoot people and things without a concept.
However, it was fun to just document things.
These pictures were taken in Colorado, a place dear to my heart, and I treasure every second there.
I was able to capture moments, and I liked that.
Not to mention I got to use my totally gorgeous sisters-in-law as models by their new red barn.
I am excited to learn manual because some of my pictures didn't turn out.
Overall, I enjoyed it.
And I love my new camera.

4. I want to be proud of my photography and hang it up all over my home.
