I'm glad that fall last longer than the 31 days of our class with Big Picture Classes. I can continue to post photos from Picture Fall without totally being out of season.
Day 6 - Subtleties
Photos don't have to be full of color to be beautiful. You would think that photos of a single coloring would be boring. Not so! Within that photo are shades of color, shapes, textures and light.
Day 7 - After The Fall
During fall lots of things are falling; leaves, petals, and seeds. We were to look for an image of something that had fallen and find a way to make it more visually appealing and to emphasize the size of the fallen object. I included my grandson inspecting the torn, fallen leaf; he has a fascination with the fallen leaves!
Day 8 - Keeping It Simple
Photography is all about capturing light on an object. Without light, there would be no photo. We were to find a simple object and use the light around it to illuminate it. I love to take photos of flowers from beneath. I usually find a surprise, like those curls.
Day 9 - What Remains
We were to capture something that wasn't willing to let go. It could have been a leaf that kept hanging on or that flower that has so many stages as it dies. This feather stuck between two rocks caught my eye. It was almost as though it wasn't yet willing to fall to the ground.
Day 10 - Preparations
We spend a lot of time in the kitchen during the fall season. There's those special family meals and dishes that just say "fall" like pumpkin rolls or spice cakes. We were to look around the kitchen and find something that brings us joy. Very hard for me, I don't photograph inanimate objects very well. But, I tried!! I do enjoy my mixer each time it helps me prepare food. It especially brings me joy when I make pie meringue!! It definitely can whip up a tall meringue!!
This class has helped me look for the little things in fall that bring joy. I hope you will also look and enjoy your fall!!
