Being in front of the camera instead of behind it was definitely a challenge for me but I am actually really pleased with how some of the pictures came out. I got out of work early one day and stopped at the pond I found on my new drive to work. I hadn’t planned on taking pictures so I didn’t have my tripod but I propped the camera (my phone) up with a stick at first but didn’t like the perspective so I used my backpack to balance it on and it looked much better. Then when I looked at the pictures at home to make edits I realized the picture where you could see the stick was really intriguing and ended up being one of my favorites. Definitely glad I joined this workshop!
For these photos I decided to try and make the best of a gloomy day, took my dog for a walk at the park down the road and experimented with the tripod.
Thanks for all the information and inspiration Hannah, great class!
