assignment #2: documentary
This assignment was to take three sets of a series of 10 exposures.
One hour upon waking up and the hour before going to bed.
Documentary is what (and how) you see a particular subject.
--A side note. I did Assignment #1 completely on film. This one I did with a digital camera.--
Ok, again, this was challenging.
The first morning and evening series, I took photographs of what I saw, from my eyes -- Views as I went through my morning and then evening from my eye sockets. The second 10 shots of each, I took photos of my hands in activity through each of those hours. Then, I got a little stuck creatively, but I began playing around with the lenses that I have and realized (BAM! moment) that my zoom lense has all along also been a macro lense! SO! I did the last 10 shots of each morning and evening hour as macro shots.
NOW, the number ONE most promising lesson and lasting feeling I learned from this exercise IS THAT I CAN MOVE STUFF AROUND FOR MY OWN COMPOSITION.
I know, I have read this a thousand times in the many books on photography...but I did not get it until I FELT IT. It occurred to me as an inspiration feeling, "OH! I can move this here or that there and it will look much better for this photo in the exercise!" Great. Learning. Great.
Next, I realized through all this thinking, composing, shooting in a particular area on a certain subject, and messing around MORE with my own equipment -- that I own a macro lense. YES! My zoom lense is also a macro lense. Fantastic. I love it. I learn more all the time. Some of the smallest lessons can have the biggest impact on output.
Below I am listing the top 10 of each "Hour upon Awaking" and "Hour before Going to Bed."
-and then the top two I chose from each--
