I have so many amazing photographs I like from this week. Most of them are from various class assignments that I had to do but caused me to find a photograph that I loved to make. This one above is such a photograph. I was supposed to make a photograph of the blue sky reflecting off non glaring water. Sincere there was no blue sky I instead decided to photograph the school of goldfish in the pond. Now I have photographed fish in ponds many times before and was never very happy with the results because the somewhat dirty water would always make the photographs murky. This time though I had the brilliant idea of including one bubble from the cascases leading into the pond. For me this single bubble makes the photograph seem crisp and sharp but still lets the main attention be on the goldfish.
I made another photograph I like this time on the theme of photographing a white subject on a white background. I was surprised at how hard it was to find a white subject I wanted to photograph. Finally I found this white rose and decided it would be perfect for my assignment. I got in close with my borrowed macro lens and loved the subtle shadows created by filling the frame with the all white rose. I tried a mixture of compositions but like the focus point I chose with this photograph and the wavy flowing light shadows that weave through the photograph.
I also made some photographs on a class out-trip to Inspiration Peak and at Central Lakes College football game.
