Here are photos I've taken for homework, ones I haven't already posted here.
My toes match the crepe myrtles by the pool (PS I hate feet pictures so this was a stretch for me):
A lego battle:
Some beach fun during the magic hour (taken with point and shoot, you don't need fancy camera for this class!):
Me after a long day (yes my camera and lens is BIG):
And me, what I usually look like. Taken while my kids played at the playground.
I think one of my strengths as a photographer is taking candids so I've always focused on candids. This class has really made me think more about staged shots to get the photo I want.
This week I realized the boys are not getting enough exercise at kindergarten so I took them for dinner at the pool last night, with the caveat they help me with practicing leisure dive shot. What's a leisure dive? When you dive into a pool leisurely. I call this "Children look like angels when they're sleeping" dive:
I really really REALLY want to get a photo featured on LeisureDive.com. So I'm putting it out there. From local people: I need models. From non-local people: we need ideas. Check out Leisure Dive (seriously you will die laughing!) and give us some creative ideas for dives. Best creative idea not already featured on Leisure Dive will win a prize from me.
This is definitely happening peoples!
