We are just about to enter week 6 (the last week), so I took the opportunity to catch up on things that we've been taught over the past 2 weeks this morning, Creative Photography and Portrait Photography. As you will see from the following photos, I roped my wife Cathryn in to act as my willing model!
We had great fun trying to find creative ways to take interesting portraits. I really like the one that is shot through the chain-link fence, I think it frames her face really well and adds an extra dimension to what would otherwise be a 'normal' photograph.
I also like the ones where I've used a leaf or flower to add colour to the portrait, this is a great technique which I've learnt from the course, it's so cool to see what kind of results you can get and how it changes your photos, adding colour and a vintage look. I know that I'll be forever picking up leaves and flowers now when I'm taking photos!!!
I have also been announced as the winner of this week's give-away! Woohoo!!! I am the lucky person who has won a 1/2 hour private Skype lesson with Erin from alovesupremephotography. To say I am excited about this is an understatement...it is such an amazing opportunity to be able to ask her any questions I have, which will help me to develop my photography.
