It’s been a while (seemingly) since I’ve participated in one of Cee’s Photo Challenges- far, far too long. To get back into the “swing” of things, I am starting off with a REAL challenge.
I am in the baby stages- possibly the toddler stages…MAYBE, of photography. Every time I pick up my camera, it is a challenge. Shooting at random, praying something falls into place, USED to be my mode of operation, however, the challenge has begun to morph and grow into truly learning the craft behind the composition.
The next paragraph describes the CHALLENGE from Cee’s page (woohoo!) and past that, you will find my attempts at following the CHALLENGE properly! HINT: If you place your cursor over the pictures, you can read the captions.
Post pictures of your comfort zone in terms of focal length from the subject. Then add photos the new ways that you’ve tried. Add comments and tell us how that change in perspective felt to you. What did you learn about yourself? About your vision of the world? About your camera?
Most importantly, did you have fun?
MY COMFORT ZONE: Somewhat up-close (without actually getting close) using my EF 75-300 Zoom lens. Generally outdoors, using natural lighting and vibrant natural colors.
STEPPING AWAY FROM MY COMFORT ZONE:
Q: The final question to sum up the challenge was: “DID YOU HAVE FUN?”
A: That would be a HUGE “YES!”
Extra credit for Gold Star Award: Post pictures of the same subject at different focal lengths, and tell us which one shot you liked best and why.
Now that I’ve shared a billion photos, It’s time to let my poor, overworked old MacBook take a rest!
