Walk Around the Block

May 2, 2011 § 2 Comments

Finally a new post! I have been swamped with work and school that I haven’t been able to get around to my new hobby of photoblogging. These pictures were taken a while ago, and I’m still working on getting comfortable with my camera. These were taken during my photography class…we all took a walk around the block. We ran into a few people and most of them would avoid eye contact with any of us and walk past as quickly as possible. I guess a group of 10 weirdos with cameras can be a little unnerving. (“please, please, please don’t try and take my picture”).

I chose my favorite pictures from that evening to post. I caught some really good lighting on some of the old buildings. I think the biggest challenge I’ve been running into lately is trying to compose something that’s really interesting to look at. I have come to really appreciate how amazing the human eye is. I can look at the world and see something fantastic, but it’s a whole different story trying to capture that through the lens of a camera.

I decided to use a slideshow this time around…it was just a million times easier to create. How do you like it? Which pictures are your favorite?

The Pedal Harp

My entire photography obsession started when I found an ad for a photography class at the local community college. I was probably crazy to sign up seeing as how I am in the middle of my Master’s program, but I couldn’t resist! These photos are from our first photo shoot that we did as part of our photography class. I had so much fun doing this shoot and looking at the pictures it’s hard to imagine that I was crammed in a tiny room with 10 other photographers all trying to get the best shots possible. But, I do have to say that I am very pleased with how my photos turned out!

Which do you like the best? These are only a select few of 150 photos!

I love the pattern of the strings and tuning pins. The harp is such a beautiful instrument! I had so much fun with this photo shoot and I hope you enjoy checking out my pictures!
