This weeks learning activity was about photography and was based to the Lynda.com video Foundations of Photography: Composition by Ben Long. After seeing the movie we were to shoot a serie of shots of each of the following topics and post the best ones here.
While in the video the assignments were giving in black and whites, I shot most of my shots in Black and White. It was challenging and I really had to change my way of looking the contrast and colours in real world. Sometimes the things that worked in colours didn’t work anymore in black and white and I came home suprised.
I spend the easter vacation week doing this learning activity so that this following week I was able to concentrate to the Mandatory assignment. We were traveling a lot so I got quite a different shots. After converting them to B&W I analyse them and kept a list which ones still need to be improved. The hardest for me was again to decide which ones to choose while I shot the same topic in different situations.
