Here’s another image that I made for my online photography class.
Shooting a specific assignment that was subject to an image review by the instructor made me really nervous (even though the instructor is the nicest person ever). I had some ideas of shots and the first attempts at these pre-planned images were, in a word, awful. I felt a little discouraged but kept going, kept my eyes open for possibilities, and hoped I wasn’t going to be That Person in class with the stupid-looking homework assignment. (Also: with digital homework, you cannot use “the dog ate my homework” excuse. FYI.)
Anyway, I didn’t even notice this scene at first, but it eventually dawned on me that it held some possibilities for that assignment. Sometimes I can be remarkably slow at noticing the perfectly obvious things that are RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
