We hopped in the car with our cameras and drove down to Keller Lake Park in Maplewood, MN. Our lesson today was more about noticing the little things… searching for and finding beauty.
What we focused on:
The following image my son took of me in some dappled light. Prior to taking the image we talked about including part of the bridge railing to use as a leading line to me, his subject.
In this next Diptych image, the one on the left I took of him and the one on the right he took at that exact moment! 🙂 I love how he kept in mind our lesson about shooting through objects.. he purposefully included some of the flowers in the foreground to create layering in the image.
Here are a few more shots he took as we walked along. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him find a little flower, dandelion, and whatever he deemed beautiful to photograph 🙂
For these last few images he worked in harsh full sun light behind his subjects and how it creates a haze as well as taking images on Blurpose 😉
Thank you for following along! 🙂 When I asked him what he learned today he said, “shooting in different light and learning to shoot in different angles”.
At his dental appointment today the dentist asked him what his favorite subject is thus far in Home School …. he said, “Photography” 🙂 🙂 🙂 My life is complete ;
I bought a camera this June. I am taking notes and learning along with Cam. Thanks for blogging this I love it.
That’s awesome Mia!! What camera did you get?
Thank YOU for following along! 😊
