Improving your photo skills - more practice.
In practicing my avocation, or hobby to some, I find that sitting at home looking at the TV or computer screen does not improve my photo skills, neither does it help my waistline. With warmer weather this week, I am planning more adventures outdoors, down to the park, taking the dogs to the bark park, and a bit more hiking.
What to do on this assignment:
Save all of the photos in one file, name it assignment 1 or (date) + assignment. Now you will go back to each of these places after the trees and bushes have started to leaf and repeat the photos you have taken on the first run of this assignment, add people if possible, but do not show faces. Make a good effort to match the photos together from the first to the second trips; study each shot, and note the differences. You may want to write down what you see different in each shot, from the greenery, to the lighting, note the warmth or coolness of the lighting; what the addition of people adds to the scene, and whatever else you notice.
What should you notice? This is what this assignment is all about, what you see in each shot and scene, how light, leaves on trees, and people make the second set of photos different. This also helps you as a photographer to SEE what is in the scenes you take.
Note: You might want to take a plastic garbage bag along to remove some of the visible trash so you photos will look neater.
